Fernet Francisco Cask Edition 750ml
Max Rudsten and Ben Flajnik, two local guys with a passion for the peculiar, formed their friendship over a shot of fernet. Prior to this fateful toast, they each had explored their infatuation with complex elixirs. Max had spent tireless days in his backyard experimenting with his own concoctions, constantly macerating, infusing, and barrel aging different local plants and herbs, exhaustively cataloging the results in hopes of creating the first local, San Francisco fernet. Meanwhile, on an amaro quest of his own, Ben traveled to the most remote corners of the globe, immersing himself in the methods and techniques practiced by some of the most renowned international distilleries. Their connection sparked the emergence of Fernet Francisco – the first locally crafted, Bay Area Fernet.
12 hand –picked, local herbs and botanicals, carefully selected for their bold aromas and intense flavors. A vapor infused core distillate using a concoction of secret botanicals then blended with a medley of select herbal infusions using local grape-based brandy and organic natural grain spirit. A refined and elegant, yet tremendously punchy elixir. Fernet Francisco, the Spirit of San Francisco.
Introducing the first Barrel Edition Fernet Francisco. Limited to 75 cases, aged in the Bay Area, created for the lionhearted.
