Its decisive tone is derived from the unique taste of its individual ingredients which results in an undeniable rich bitter that finishes with a delicately spiced aftertaste. Golden shades of saffron from Iran. The bitterness of the South Africa aloe and French generation root. The intense notes of Zedoaria and the full-bodied flavor of chamomile. The prevailing impression is bitter-but the finish is spicy: the distinctive fragrance of myrrh from the Horn of Africa. The Fernet Branca experience begins here: a unique voyage of discovery through the places, perfumes and flavors. The rich sensation of 27 herbs gathered from across four continents.

Wine EnthusiastThis 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.
