Never heard of "bitters" in such a context. What do they look like/where do you get them?

I know you are all talking about a small bottle of bitters used in drink making, but when I was in Denmark, I learned to enjoy what they call bitters. Gammeldansk and other bottled liquor with "secret formulas " that they enjoy straight up in a shot, with their morning coffee, or any gathering. It was awful at first, but now I enjoy a shot once in a while. In Denmark it's always brought out when friends drop in. It's also taken for what ails you. It seems each little region often has a bitters that is fashioned there and has a distinct flavor. Gammeldansk means "old Danish" . It's a lovely custom, and the Danes like to get you to try it whenever you visit a home. They're pleased when a non-Dane learns to like it.

There are a few bitters, so I am not sure which one in particular you mean there is Campari, Cynar, Angostura, Aperol and many more. Going by their differences in ingredients they cannot all be used for the same purpose.Some have herbs, licorice, orange peel, clover, fennel quinine etc etc. Could you please specify then it would be easier.
