Tasting Notes

Saffron is just one of the over 40 herbs and spices used to make Fernet-Branca: much more than Italy’s greatest after-dinner drink, it is a key ingredient in the healthy lifestyle that Europeans and Americans have been enjoying for over 150 years. The health-enhancing properties of Fernet-Branca have made it the favored "digestivo" at tables across the world. Traditionally served straight up at the end of a meal, it aids in digestion and cleanses the palate.

Staff Pick Notes

After a grueling day of tasting rare wines and spirits and gabbing about them with like-minded people, (sounds AWFUL, I know), I like to wind down in a particular manner: booze, ice cream, and WQXR Classical Radio. Here's the thing... pairing booze with ice cream is tough because it's so darn sweet. Dessert drinks often have #EXTRA sugar content and a heavy, unappealing texture. Luckily, there's Branca Menta. This spirit starts out like its big bro, Fernet, with abundant fresh herbs. But the mint and sugar is amped up, lowering the alcohol level. The result is refreshing, medium-bodied, and free of artificial green hues. But the BEST PART? This hooch was created for the O.G. soprano Maria Callas, known to add a mint sprig and a sugar cube to her Fernet. So pour this over some Breyer's, and turn up that Puccini. È una cosa bella!
