House Orange Bitters is a name commonly used to refer to a blending of Regan's Orange Bitters #6 and Fee's Orange Bitters in a 50/50 ratio. This formulation was first devised at the Pegu Club in New York, when they were trying to work up specs for their various cocktails, and were having a hard time finding an orange bitters that worked for them. Fee's bitters had been on the market for a while, but were rather simplistic in flavor as well as deemed a little too sweet. Regan's had just recently come on to the market, but seemed a little too heavy in cardamom. The solution they came up with at the Pegu Club was to simply mix the two together, which worked perfectly.
