Tempus Fugit Spirits Fernet del Frate Liqueur is deep-colored, almost black, with golden reflections from the expensive addition of excellent saffron, and there is no additional coloring added. The saffron aromas mix with lightly mentholated and medicinal notes. The bitterness has immediately detected on the first sip. Still, it evolves with light mint, surprisingly balanced menthol flavors, and a subtle sweetness carries the finish on for a long while, as the bitterness becomes remarkably engaging.
This fantastic liqueur can be sipped on its own but shines in skillfully-made cocktails. Tempting to take straight as a shot, if one stops to savor it, Fernet del Frate will instantly become the go-to sipper for the first and the last drink of the night. Enjoy!
