Angostura is probably one of the brands with the longest story back in time. In order to make it easier, we’ve made a timeline:

1824 – It all starts with Dr. Siegert, from the town of Angostura in Venezuela, finishing his recipe for medicine. The reason for this is for him to work as a doctor for Simon Bolivars army. The city called Angostura back then is now known as Ciudad Bolivar.

1875 – The family business moves to Trinidad and is now run by Dr. Siegerts sons: Carlos, Alfredo & Luis. The company is now called Dr. J.G.B Siegert & Hijos. (Dr.J.G.B Siegert and kids). The production of bitter now continues in a small factory at the docks.
