Though it was born back in 1845, over the years Fernet-Branca has successfully preserved the personality and uniqueness that have conquered Europe and America alike. Its secret formula, passed down from father to son in the Branca family, has guaranteed the protection of the quality that still makes it the digestive bitter liqueur par excellence. Indeed, the 27 herbs it contains come from all five continents: aloe comes from South Africa, rhubarb from China, gentian from France, galingale from India or Sri Lanka, chamomile from Italy or Argentina, just to name a few. On top of that there are flowers, herbs, roots and plants used for alcoholic brews, extracts and teas that, blended in a special mixture, produce the beneficial properties of the product. Fernet-Branca ages for at least one year in oak barrels and has a light brown colour with amber hues. Its aroma is intense and penetrating, balanced and rich. Thanks to its history, authenticity and unique taste, Fernet.Branca has managed to live on through the decades, always reinventing its modern character. It definitely has a place in the heart of its admirers, who know well that a product like this never fails to live up to expectations. Fernet-Branca is a good match for desserts or refined dishes such as ”Risotto alla Milanese” or steak tartare. Fernet-Branca is particularly refreshing if mixed with cola or Chinotto: a drink with a clean-cut and unexpected flavour… Fernandito, a cocktail that has conquered Argentina thanks its unique character. It is easy to do and very flexible, so it is an ideal aperitif that is becoming increasingly popular all over the world among those who love to share a drink with their friends. Fernet-Branca today embodies the healthy flavour of the Mediterranean cuisine and the passion for authentic food.
Wine Enthusiast 87 points - This amaro seems innocuous at first, with its coffee-brown hue and mild, root-like aroma. But it’s intensely bitter from the first sip-so much so that it’s hard to detect other flavors, though there’s a bitter espresso and unsweetened chocolate core, plus a minty finish. Bartenders love to offer this uber-bitter liqueur as a shock-value shot; it’s challenging to sip straight, even though the alcohol level is moderate. But it’s also a key component of some classic drinks, like the Hanky Panky, and that’s where its value lies.  (Apr 2016)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Pretty coffee brown/espresso color. There’s an entire botanical universe of aroma happening here including sassafras, root beer, sage, rosemary, basil, parsley, white pepper. Taste-wise, the attributes appreciated in the bouquet are all present and accounted for the flavor, which is crisp, incredibly bitter, yet stunning in its earthy, woodsy elegance. (Mar 2015)
