Swedish bitters for example got its name from the well-known 18th century Swedish Physician and Rector of Medicine, Dr. Claus Samst.

In the 18th Century, Dr Samst rediscovered the formula through a family tradition. The formula recorded by Dr Samst is the Swedish Bitters that we know today. The Swedish doctor also compiled a manuscript describing the 46 conditions for which Swedish Bitters can bring relief.

Its even said that 2 drops will make a drunk person sober again..

At some point Swedish bartenders found out from old drink books to use these bitters in drink mixing.
