Faccia Brutto Carciofo Liqueur
Faccia Brutto is a line of liqueurs crafted by Patrick Miller, formerly of Rucola Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. Prior to opening Rucola, he worked for 14 years at restaurants around the world. He grew up in an Italian family in Los Angeles and was strongly influenced as a child by his Italian mother and grandparents for whom the Fernet (Pianta) and Amoro (Gorini) are named.
The love of all things bitter naturally led the Faccia Brutto team to highlight the artichoke in all its glory. This Carciofo is made from a blend of 19 herbs and botanicals with neutral grain spirit from Buffalo, NY. Fresh artichokes from the Central Valley in California are macerated for 10 days alongside warm spices like cinnamon, allspice, and dandelion root. Lemon peel and bay leaf round out the blend that’s sweetened with organic cane sugar. Bottled at 25% abv.
