Distilleria Varnelli

Distilleria Varnelli has been producing spirits since 1868 in the Marche region of Italy, in a pleasant inland area on the slopes of Monti Sibillini. The business started by the founder Girolamo Varnelli, a keen herbalist who applied his knowledge and skills to create an elixir with antimalarial and fever reducing properties, Amaro Sibilla, awarded the Gold Medal in 1909 at the International Exhibition in Turin..

At the beginning of the 20th Century his son Antonio extended the line with additional specialties.such as Caffè Moka and Varnelli Anice Secco as part of the valuable Mediterranean culture of anise-based liquors, Thanks to its distinctive features and versatility, Varnelli Anice Secco, was awarded the Gold Medal in 1950 as “the best Italian dry anise” and  rapidly became the company flagship.

Over almost 150 years Distilleria Varnelli has constantly grown, introducing new products such as Amaro dell’Erborista, entering new markets and being recognized as a distinctive player in the segment of premium spirits.

Today the Varnelli heirs still own 100% of the company and run the business through a balanced blend of tradition and innovation, focusing on the utmost quality while highlighting the cultural contents inherited from the past.
