About Faccia Brutto

Faccia Brutto is a line of Italian-inspired liqueurs made by Patrick Miller, a former chef who worked in restaurants for 19 years before turning his attention to creating spirits that pay homage to traditional Italian recipes. Based in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, Patrick works with organic ingredients to make his amari; the Aperitivo contains three oranges’ worth of peels in each bottle, and the Fernet includes fresh peppermint in its list of botanicals for a fresh take on the typically bracing digestif. In addition to the Aperitivo and the Fernet Pianta, Patrick continues to work on a number of projects, including the botanical-driven Centerbe inspired by both the Abruzzi Centerbe and the French Chartreuse. Just as a chef would finish all dishes with a touch of salt, Patrick adds to salt to all the spirits prior to bottling round out all the botanicals and harmonize the sweet and bitter flavors.
