Born in 1845 after a secret recipe never disclosed, up to today kept by the family and unchanged with time; it is, in fact, a case history in the trade.

Always referred to as 'the digestive', it is the perfect drink to those who enjoy extending an evening's pleasures.

The secret of its unique, unmistakable taste lies in the wise recipe: 27 herbs picked in 4 continents and aged in oak casks for over a year.

Among these: Aloes: a natural source of a great deal of important nutritional elements. Antioxydant Aloes has revitalizing properties; Gentian root: it grows in the mountains. Dried, it is a real natural 'pick-me-up' with a characteristic bitterish taste; Rhubarb: a tonic and depurative; Gum Myrrh: anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibactrial properties; Red Cinchona bark: a natural tonic and other exotic spices such as Colombus, Galanga and Zedoary.

I first ran into F.B. many years ago in a Spanish bar prior to going out for dinner,which was our usual custom. I suddenly had a violent stomach ache, I have always had this problem. The barman saw I was almost doubled in pain and gave me a small glass with what I later found out to be F.B. I nearly believed in miracles,the pain eased almost as I drank. I took details and suitably rewarded the barman. Since when I always have stock of F.B. which must originate from Italy. Wonderful Fernet Branca.

FB is a deeply aromatic and bitter drink that is often used as a \'stomach settler\' in Italy where even there it is an acquired taste! Which I DID acquire! I find it warming and very helpful neat in a small glass when I have a cramping stomach, and also very good if lengthened with soda or lemonade on a really hot day. I love the mint variety too.
