Fernet Francisco Cask

This cask collaboration used barrels that previously held High West Yippie Kayee whiskey. Generously aromatic with cinnamon roll, coffee and pumpkin spice. The up front palate has some soy, coffee, and cocoa nib on a light oily texture. Mid palate gets more savory, with the barrel influence coming through giving it a soft long finish. D&M Tasting Notes

Max Rudsten and Ben Flajnik, two local guys with a passion for the peculiar, formed their friendship over a shot of fernet. Prior to this fateful toast, they each had explored their infatuation with complex elixirs. Max had spent tireless days in his backyard experimenting with his own concoctions, constantly macerating, infusing, and barrel-aging different local plants and herbs, exhaustively cataloging the results in hopes of creating the first local, San Francisco fernet. Meanwhile, on an amaro quest of his own, Ben traveled to the most remote corners of the globe, immersing himself in the methods and techniques practiced by some of most renowned international distilleries.

Their connection sparked the emergence of Fernet Francisco - The first locally crafted, Bay Area fernet.

In each batch of Fernet Francisco, we distill 12 hand-picked herbs with a holy wisp of fresh fog. The purest. The surest. The spirit of San Francisco.
