History

Fratelli Branca Distillery was founded 1845 by Bernardino Branca and his three sons, when they started to produce a bitter herb liquor through a secret formula that has been kept hidden until nowadays (Fernet Branca). Originally, the name of this “summer edition” by Fernet Branca comes from a famous Italian Singer, Maria Carla. This diva drank Fernet Branca “alla Menta” (with mint), this is why her thousands of fans did so, following her example. Branca Menta is launched in the mid 60's due to the increasing trend of consuming FB with a mint touch. In the market in 1965 it becomes immediately a big success.


Description

Branca Menta is produced following the same recipe as Fernet Branca, from the combination of 27 different plants and spices, but adding “peppermint oil”. As with Fernet Branca, it is grown in Slovakian oak barrels during 12 months.
