Peychaud's Bitters is one of the two most classic gentian-based bitters but, unlike Angostura, Peychaud's has a lighter body and more floral aroma, with notes of anise and spiced cherry. Sometimes, nothing but Peychaud's will do, and that is why it is one of only three brands to have survived the Prohibition.

Further Reading: In the early 1800's, Antoine Amedie Peychaud, an apothecary, gained fame in New Orleans not for the drugs he dispensed, but for the compounding of a liquid tonic called bitters.
These bitters, good for what ailed one, irrespective of malady, gave an added zest to the potions of cognac brandy he served in his pharmacy.
Cognac had long been a popular drink in the numerous coffee houses of New Orleans, and presently customers began demanding their brandy be flavored with a dash of the marvelous Peychaud's Bitters.
The zest Peychaud's Bitters gives drinks and food has given it an honored place in famous gourmet recipes the world over.
