A once highly preferred brand of bitters produced in the 1830's by John G. Boker. Notably, nearly all of the recipes in Jerry Thomas' book How to Mix Drinks or The Bon Vivant's Companion specify the use of these bitters (misspelled Bogart's). Among the known ingredients were cassia, cardamom, and bitter orange peel. In 1906 U.S. Food and Drugs Act limiting medical claims caused Boker's and most other bitters producers to cease production. Until 2009, no samples of the bitters were known to exist, and as the recipe had never been published, recreating it seemed unlikely. That year, a man showed up at the London Bar Show with a small remaining sample, which was then combined with extensive research (including interviewing descendants of John Boker), to recreate a facsimile of the bitters.
