    Grilling Me Softly — Elliot Faber and The Path of a Sake Samurai

    Grilling Me Softly — Elliot Faber and The Path of a Sake Samurai

    Elliot Faber's story starts in the most unlikely of places. The relatively sleepy Canadian city of Calgary is known more for its cowboys, oil industry, and annual Calgary Stampede than for any sort of old world heritage of wine and spirits. But a thirst for travel and a desire to see the world would catalyze Elliot's long journey as a somelier, beverage director and the title of Sake Samurai.

    Grilling Me Softly — Retracing the Family Spirit with Raph Holzer

    Fernet Hunter is a modern take on a classic Italian bitter. A delicate blend of Arnica, Orris Root, Lavender, it owes its unique flavors to the forest and nearby Austrian town of Brunnwald. The creation of Raphael Holzer and Neville Kotewall, its recipe dates back to the early 1900’s with Raphael’s great grandfather, Oskar Holzer.
    Generations later, Raphael is continuing the family tradition and introducing the spirit to a new crowd with cocktails that complement it fresh hand-picked botanical ingredients.
    In this third episode of Grilling Me Softly, Iris chats with Raph about Fernet and his journey from working hospitality to becoming an entrepreneur in the craft spirits world.
