Fernet-Branca is the best known of Italian bitters.
The recipe of Fernet-Branca is a secret, and was created by the young Maria Scala in 1845 in Milan as a medicine. Scala’s name became Maria Branca through marriage, and the product’s name was born. Fernet-Branca is still produced in Milan by the company Fratelli Branca, overseen by the Branca family.
The secret of its unique, unmistakable taste lies in the recipe; 27 herbs picked in 4 continents and aged in Slovenian oak casks for over a year.
12 months – the maturation of the product. Many people claim that Fernet-Branca is an excellent digestive aid and hangover cure.
