Don't miss this one! Hosted jointly by the Hundred North crew and the Fratelli Branca Distillery of Milan Italy, we will be serving multiple courses of food and cocktails all featuring Fratelli spirits in creative and delicious ways. Enjoy seating and mingling at large tables and enjoy the casual and fun atmosphere this night will bring. Each platter will serve four guests in this slightly more family style setup of the event. Come alone, or even better bring a bunch of friends and/or family! If you've had Fernet, you know it's a wonderful and very specific and unique drink. We'll show you many ways it can be used besides neat in a glass as is most commonly found. You'lll be amazed by how versatile it can be! We will also be featuring other awesome spirits from the distillery.
Cost: $65 -hold your place by purchasing a ticket on Eventbrite for $15 (click here), then the remaining $50 will be charged on the evening of the event. We've priced it low and arranged it on a Monday because we also want as many industry folks to join us as possible!

More about this super unique beverage: "Manufactured by the Fratelli Branca Distillerie in Milan, Fernet-Branca is one of the higher proof amari (78 proof / 39% ABV), and also one of the lowest in sugar. Fernet-Branca is made from an assortment of forty herbs, roots, and spices. While the exact recipe is a secret, we do know that Fernet-Branca contains aloe ferox (also known as bitter aloe), gentian (a bittering agent), chamomile, angelica, quinine, colombo root, chinese rhubarb, myrrh, peppermint, saffron, and ireos. These herbs, spices, and roots are divided up between hot infusion (basically percolating herbs like coffee with spirit) and cold infusion, during which they are soaked in alcohol and then centrifuged. After the infusions are left to settle for a month, they are blended and then aged for a full year into Slovenian oak barrels and Eastern European oak.
Fernet-Branca is one of the few amari to be aged for a full year. The aging process serves to both add characteristics from the barrel and to intensify flavors of the spirit."
