Tempus Fugit Fernet Angelico 750ML
"'Fernet' is a style of amaro (bitter) historically acclaimed for its complex herbal aromas and intense flavors. Fernet del frate Angelico is created following an original hand written recipe, containing rare and exotic ingredients such as Colombo Root, Saffrom and Myrrh, which translates as 'was bitt; in Old Aramaic and is a highly fragrant and valued resin from ancient times. Spicy and aromatic with a balanced bitterness, these qualities define this historic Fernet recipe. Fernet del frate Angelico is completely hand-made without compromise, in small batches, using only the finest historic ingredients.
Deep colored, almost black, with golden reflections from the expensive addition of fine saffron, there is no additional coloring added. The saffron aromas mix with lightly mentholated and medicinal notes. The bitterness is immediately detected on the first sip, but evolves with light mint, menthol flavors that are surprisingly balanced and a subtle sweetness carries the finish on for a long while, as the bitterness becomes surprisingly engaging. This amazing liqueur can be sipped on its own, but shines in skillfully-made cocktails, especially the Employees Only and the Toronto. Tempting to take straight as a shot, if one stops to savor it, Fernet del Frate will instantly become the go-to sipper for the first and the last drink of the night." - Tempus Fugit Spirits
