The original cocktail - the old fashioned

The cocktail that was around before there was " cocktails"

 Angostura bitters, often simply referred to as angostura, is a concentrated bitters made of water, 45.6% alcohol, gentian root, and vegetable flavoring extracts[1] by House of Angostura in Trinidad and Tobago.

The bottle is easily recognisable by its distinctive oversized label. read on here
