Tasting Notes

Letherbee has proven to be one of the most exciting new distilleries in the wave of craft outfits that continue to sweep the country. Fittingly so, coming from a city with such a long and deep connection to spirits and cocktails. The folks behind the brand are making their mark on a variety of traditional categories that not only stand-up impressively well on their own but are also damn good mixed into stellar drink creations. From the first aromas here there is no doubt this is fernet as we know and love it, with that clean menthol, minty hallmark that is backed up by some seriously exotic flavors provided by the generous amount of saffron, rhubarb, and myrrh gum. A great new addition.

Staff Pick Notes

Letherbee Fernet

What happens when a group of bartenders from Chicago get together to create the spirits they've always dreamed of? We get treated to pure artisan scrumptiousness! The guys at Letherbee have brought us a beautiful, complex fernet. While the telltale notes of saffron, spearmint and eucalyptus are still there, they intermingle seamlessly with more complex notes of cinnamon, chocolate, cola, leather, chili pepper, and just a touch of black pepper and candied fruits. On the palate the initial sweet entry of warm cinnamon, chili pepper, and chocolate fades to a deep bitter chocolate mint finish. Use this as you would any other fernet. It's my secret weapon in many complex cocktail creations, but it's just as good sipped after dinner. Absolutely delicious! JBB
