Walcher - Fernet Bio Amaro
Region: Sudtiroler (Alto Adige)
Ah Fernet. The juicy bitter herb drink so often palmed off on hospo as an after dinner shot. A free Fernet? Oh wow I feel so special.
Mostly this is reference to Fernet Branca (which I hate and its basically toothpaste water). HOWEVER! Here we have the far superior Walcher version. No added sugar, 28 botanicals and a focus on saffron as a flavouring. An actually tasty after dinner amaro.
Did you know Fernet and Cola is a thing, especially in Argentina. So if you want to drink like an Argentine* then add a shot of Fernet Walcher in a short glass on ice and top with capi cola.
* This recipe is in no way Argentine. They usually use Fenet Branca, closer to 2 shots in a tall glass.
