Geijer Spirits (San Francisco, California) has officially announced that it has entered into an agreement with Vision Wine & Spirits, LLC to begin the nationwide distribution of California Fernet.
Crafted by Martin Geijer, Founder of Geijer Spirits, to “bring you new and exciting products at the intersection between Scandinavia and California,” the handmade California Fernet features “21 roots, herbs and spices that create a complex, but dry and grassy finish.” To ensure this liqueur reaches optimum levels of drinkability, this offering “rests in large tanks until it reaches bottling mellowness.” California Fernet is “made with 50% less sugar than the category leader” and comes in at 40% ABV.
“We are thrilled to begin our collaboration with Vision Wine & Spirits. With the reach and expertise of the Vision team, we look forward to introducing our award-winning California Fernet, soon to be followed by California Falernum, to a national audience.”
– Martin Geijer, Founder of Geijer Spirits
