APPELLATION

Adriatic Coast, Italy

 

Fernet

The Silvio Meletti  Company was born in 1870. When Silvio attended his first Fair in Paris in 1878, he brought his distinguished liqueurs including Anisette, which would quickly become an award-winner and one of the most famous Italian liqueurs. Among the group was Silvio’s distinctive Fernet. Silvio left to his descendants a book with all the original recipes and after 148 years, his great-great grandchildren; Matteo and Mauro Meletti , took inspiration to produce Meletti  Fernet, again.

A stomach settler and a breath freshener, this liqueur is full-on minty from first sip straight through to exhale. The moderately bitter midpalate offers hints of dark chocolate, espresso and allspice. There’s a passing resemblance to thin-mint cookies if you squint.
