Fernet is an Italian type of amaro, a bitter aromatic spirit. Fernet is made from a number of herbs and spices, with a base of grape distilled spirits, and colored with caramel coloring. The nose is almost effervescent with flavours of sweet caramel, citrus and mint. The palate has two very distinct layers, a base of sugary citrus and an earthy and herbal bitterness with hints of tobacco, chocolate, and caramel culminating in a bitter mentholated finish
Fernet is usually served as a digestif after a meal but may also be served with coffee and espresso or mixed into coffee and espresso drinks. It may be served at room temperature or with ice.
