Altfernet is purely natural fernet full of flavour and rich dark colour that arises under the hands of the master Václav Šitnera in the south Bohemian town of Blatná. The preparation itself is primarily guided by master Šitner and his intuition, which is supported by lifetime experience.
He himself determines how much time is needed and the right moment when everything is done.
He prepares and weighs the herbs by himself. Afterwards there are macerated by him in grain alcohol and later he combines herbal extracts into delicious fluid, which is influenced by time and his life experience. At the end, the harmoniously full-bodied flavour of this unique fernet is born and Altfernet gains its noble qualities.
