Fernet Hunter Granit
Regular price $110.00
Fernet Hunter is a fresh take on a classic Italian bitter. Using a recipe that dates back to the early 1900, this aromatic spirit is made from a select combination of botanicals, including Arnica, Orrisroot, and Lavender, which are found in and around the Austrian town and forest of Brunnwald.
"Granit" - refers to the solid granite rocks that can be found throughout Austria's Mühlviertel region - a part of the Bohemian massif that stretches from the Czech Republic to the Northern parts of Austria. Granite defines this area and its landscape provides many of the natural resources used to make Fernet Hunter Granit.
Chamomile - provides a strong aromatic character and complexity to this unique bitter. A plant that historically stands for comfort and courage - is also added, which naturally enhances the bitter notes and provides a smooth texture to the amaro.
The name "Granit" refers to the solid granite rocks that can be found throughout Austria's Mühlviertel region - a part of the Bohemian massif that stretches from the Czech Republic to the Northern parts of Austria. For our second spirit in the Fernet Hunter family, we wanted to create a bitter that truly captured the essence and dryness of granite. To mimic these characteristics, our recipe foundation was altered by increasing the ratio of roots and slightly decreasing the aromas of lavender and arnica.- Fernet Hunter
