The Swedish Bitters formula has existed in many different forms and with different names for hundreds of years.
The Sweedish Bitters recipe disappeared after the death of the great medical reformer Paracelsus (1493-1542) and stayed lost for several hundred years – probably only existing in the diaries and medicinal recipes of the learned. In the 18th Century, Swedish physician Dr Claus Samst rediscovered the formula through a family tradition and recorded it as we know it today. Dr Samst compiled a manuscript describing the many ailments for which Swedish Bitters can be used. This manuscript is referred to as the ‘Old Manuscript’ and can still be found in many books today. Dr Samst himself lived to be 104 and finally succumbed, not to the ravages of old age, but as a result of a fall while horse riding!
