Tempus Fugit 'Fernet del Frate Angelico'Liqueur Switzerland
Although categorized as an Amaro (bitter), Fernet is in a bitter category of its own. Tempus Fugit’s founder John Troia came across an old recipe attributing the bitter libation to a monk named Frate Angelico Fernet. Using the finest ingredients available, John set out to resurrect this famous cure-all tonic. Rich saffron aromas mix with menthol notes while bitterness can be detected on first sip. Upon the second sip it evolves into light mint and a surprisingly balanced sweetness. You don’t have to be a hipster bartender to appreciate this fernet. Try it neat, with a ginger beer back or in a classic Toronto cocktail.
