Fernet Branca

Fernet-Branca’s history is profoundly Italian and began in 1845 thanks to Bernardino Branca: its unique and still secret recipe, using ingredients from all over the globe, has made Fernet-Branca the world’s most popular Italian liqueur.

With the invention of its amaro, the company Fratelli Branca Distillerie was founded and a short while later the first production factory was built in Corso di Porta Nuova in Milan, which employed more than 300 workers. The story surrounding Branca is about people as well as Italy and has earned its place in folklore thanks also to the aura of mystery that has always surrounded the product: the enigma concerning its formula, that is still hidden away in a safe that can only be accessed by the company’s chairman, and which continues to be bequeathed from father to son.
