Chicago based distillery Letherbee is no stranger to big flavors, with a penchant for bracing profiles across their lineup. Having said that, their Fernet is notably rich and welcoming when compared to some others in the category. The prominence of saffron evokes popular Fernets, but supporting notes of rhubarb root and myrrh gum scaffold the palate as to not let bitter notes overpower. Spearmint and eucalyptus lend a subtle, mentholated finish. A Fernet more suited to savoring than shooting.
