You will like to know that…

Fernet Brancamenta was born in 1960. It is the much younger sibling of Fernet-Branca, a popular Italian bitter herbal liqueur made using 27 different secret ingredients, which was first produced in 1845. Brancamenta is slightly sweeter than the original Fernet-Branca. It also sets itself apart thanks to the lovely mint-flavour brought to the mix by Italian peppermint from Piedmont. This world-class mint is made into an essential oil that is then mixed with the herbs and spices that have been winning over palates as Fernet-Branca for more than a century.

The recipe for this liquor remains top secret but the flavour is there for anyone to experience. This warm, brown liqueur gives off the welcoming aroma of fresh peppermint. Bittersweet and best served ice cold, this is a spirit that is sure to be refreshing. Perfect to enjoy on your own or with company, this icy-hot delight is perfect to enjoy all year round.

While it shines strongest on its own, Brancamenta is also irresistible in a number of cocktails, where the mint flavour and the herbal back notes add a depth of flavour to the final drink that you simply have to try. As an aperitif or an anytime drink, this is a great option to have on hand.

Description of Fernet Branca Menta

Fernet Branca Menta

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: This beverage has a dark brown colour, similar to that of diet cola.
  • Aroma: This drink is famous for its brilliantly minty scent. Other smells include pine and sweet syrup.
  • Taste: Like the scent, the main flavour of this beverage is also that of mint. However, the flavours also showcase a variety of botanicals that provide bitterness. Some of these botanicals include myrrh, saffron, chamomile, cinnamon, and rhubarb.

PRODUCER: The Fernet Branco brand was founded by Berandino Branca in 1845. The brand was famous for creating amaro, a type of bitter liqueur. The brand is still famous for this today. However, Fernet Branca Menta was first introduced by Fernet Branca in the 1960s. By the time this drink was created, the original Fernet Branca drink had already become famous the world over. The original recipe was later adjusted and to make Fernet Branca Menta .

COUNTRY: Italy

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Technically, Fernet Branca Menta is a specialized liqueur. Traditionally, liqueurs are made with a flavourless alcoholic base.

These include rhubarb, chamomile, cinnamon, linden, iris, saffron, zedoary, galingale, and myrrh.
