Fratelli Branca Distillerie
Welcome to Branca Products|
Bernardino Branca invents Fernet-Branca, the bitter liqueur that has made history. From the Milan plant in Corso di Porta Nuova, Fernet-Branca starts being distributed all over Italy.
Stefano Branca joins the company and soon launches new products, introducing them at the fin-de-siècle international exhibitions, achieving immediate success.
Dino Branca takes over and pursues an international growth policy: Fratelli Branca expands in Europe and America. New plants are opened in Buenos Aires, Saint Louis, Chiasso and a New York branch is founded. The Milan plant is moved to its current location, in Via Resegone.
Fernet-Branca with mint is created, being named Brancamenta. It is a revolutionary product combining beneficial and digestive properties with the pleasure of a refreshing taste.
Fratelli Branca takes over a 50% share in the Carpano Company.
Fratelli Branca takes over the Candolini distillery in Tarcento (UD), Italy.
Pierluigi Branca passes away. His brother Pino is appointed Chairman of the company and his son Niccolò becomes its CEO.
Caffè Borghetti, the real espresso-coffee liqueur made with the 1860 historical recipe, is included in the product portfolio.
In October Niccolò Branca is appointed "Cavaliere del Lavoro" by the Italian President Giorgio Napolitano.
