Faccia Brutto Spirits - Centerbe NV
The liquors are crafted by Patrick Miller, formerly of Rucola Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. Prior to opening Rucola, he worked for 14 years at restaurants around the world. He grew up in an Italian family in Los Angeles and was strongly influenced as a child by his Italian mother and grandparents for whom the Fernet (Pianta) and Amaro (Gorini) are named.
Made from twenty botanicals, all either herbs, leaves or seeds, half fresh and half dried - this is Bruto's take on a classic Italian bittersweet elixir, somewhere in-between Chartreuse and Genepy.
