Fernet Branca Liqueur NV

Winemaker's Notes:

A Milanese Amaro from the Branca company, this potent spirit is a blend of over 40 herbs and spices including myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom, aloe, and saffron, with a base of grape distilled spirits. Originally created as a medicine for menstrual pains, it is usually served as a digestif today. It is also drunk over ice, in coffee (especially espresso) or as a bitter ingredient in a cocktail. In Argentina, it is incredibly popular served in a tall glass with ice and Coca-Cola! 40% ABV.

A dark brown bitter amaro that is a great digestif or hangover cure. Also becoming popular in cocktails like the Toronto (a Manhattan with Fernet substituted for vermouth).

I loves me some Fernet. It's the perfect digestif: bitter, with layers and layers of flavor. Don't confuse it with Menta Branca, which is foul and don't ruin it by adding coke, like they do in Argentina.

Dark brown with an orange cast; fresh peppermint aromas are very distinctive; a huge blast of menthol assaults the palate with a drying bitter herb finish.

Fernet Branca is a bitter, aromatic spirit made from 27 herbs and spices, including myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom, aloe, and saffron, with a base of grape alcohol. It is usually served as a digestif after a meal, and can be enjoyed at room temperature or on the rocks.

I consider Fernet Branca the Jager for adults. Folks either love it or hate it. I loved it. It has all the henefits of herbs, minerals and other good things, but without the sugar you find in Jager.
