Salt perceptions suppress sour and bitter flavors while brightening sweet flavors. Salt increases saliva creating a desirable mouth feel and heightens flavor perceptions. Salt can easily be confused as sour in low concentrations however it is excellent for suppressing the harsh bite of alcohol. High amounts of salt can be suppressed with sweet flavors.
Bar40 bitters is doing something revolutionary to define themselves in the craft cocktail bitters space. We met them at Tales of the Cocktail 2015 and did a little tasting. Bar40 removes the need to know exactly which herb is center focus, by creating a "sensation" bitter instead of a single focus bitter.
