Gran Classico Bitter Liqueur
Tempus Fugit // Switzerland
Gran Classico Bitter Liqueur is made using an original 1860s recipe made in Turin, Italy. Today, the Tempus Fugit brand makes it in Switzerland macerating 25 herbs and roots including wormwood, gentian, rhubarb, hyssop, and bitter orange peel among others. The maceration imparts an all-natural color to the bitter liqueur with no additional coloring needed.
Bitter LiqueursMuch like amaro, bitter liqueurs are made from the maceration or distillation (or combination) of herbs, spices, roots, flowers, or other botanicals. Bitter liqueurs are often red or orange in color, although they needn’t be. Sugar is added before bottling. ABV varies widely.
