Old and bitter

My parents have found an unopened bottle of Fernet that belonged to my grandfather. This makes it at least 25 years old. Do herb liquors like this get any better or worse with such age? Is it still safe to drink?

Ok, let's get this out of the way first: Yes, I happen to like Fernet Branca.
I think the bottle has been stored in various closets and later in a dining room cabinet. So it's been in relative darkness but probably at room temperature. So we are not looking at "wine cellar conditions" for storage or anything like that.
