Fernet is an Italian type of amaro, a bitter aromatic spirit. Fernet is made from a number of herbs and spices which vary according to the brand, but usually include myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom, aloe, and especially saffron, with a base of grape distilled spirits, and coloured with caramel colouring.

Fernet is usually served as a digestif after a meal but may also be served with coffee and espresso or mixed into coffee and espresso drinks. It may be served at room temperature or with ice. A mint-flavoured version of fernet is also available.

Fernet's smell has been described as "like black licorice-flavoured Listerine".

Fernet-Branca is often consumed neat as a digestif typically served in a cordial glass, or as a mixing component(usually supportive and not as the primary ingredient) in cocktails such as the Toronto, the Fanciulli, and the more prolific Hanky Panky.

Fernet-Branca has enjoyed a recent growth in popularity in the United States particularly due to an increase in the interest in and mixing/serving of "vintage" cocktails.
