Fernet Branca / Fernet Style Amaro (MD)
ita / 78 proof / 750 ml
The Standard-bearer for the fernet style of amari - high proof, mentholated, and bracingly bitter with very little sugar added, Fernet Branca is a potent digestif. Fernet Branca is a unique combination of 27 herbs, roots, and spices. The Fratelli Branca company is one of the largest importers of saffron in the world, which is thought to be a major flavoring ingredient in this unique amaro. Mix it in sparingly to some classic cocktails, such as the Hanky Panky or Toronto, or add a bar spoon to a Moscow Mule to give added complexity.
