What’s shakin, cocktail fans?
Welcome to Episode 142 of The Modern Bar Cart Podcast!
This time around, we chat with Nick Fisher, who runs the wildly popular Cocktail Chemistry YouTube Channel. We’re talking almost a million subscribers popular. This ain’t no joke. Of course we talk about how his channels came to be and how he goes about creating his videos, but we do have an overarching focus in this interview: Fernet.
Many of you know it as the bartender’s handshake, or that thing you tried once and really hated, but regardless of your affinities or aversions, the fact remains: Fernet is one of the most important and least understood categories of bitter liqueurs on the planet. Nick recently published a video where he conducted a comparative tasting of 9 different Fernets from around the world, and that is what we’re here to de-brief.
