Country of origin: ITALY Alcohol content: 21% Alcohol by Volume
Braulio is made in the true Alpine style from a venerated estate begun by Francesco Peloni over a century ago. Located in Valtellina, near the border with Switzerland, this amaro is made from a secret recipe of over 20 mountain herbs and botanicals, which are gathered and used to create this one-of-a-kind spirit. Foresty, herbaceous, and piney, with a floral character and a distinct menthol note. Intense concentration with a touch of medicinal spice that speaks to the original purposes of these ancient potions. Very refreshing, with a pungent bitterness.
The main ingredients of Braulio are medicinal herbs, fruits, roots and berries that, at least originally, were collected on the slopes of the Braulio Valley.
The liqueur is aged for two years in casks of Slavonian oak.
140 years of history.
Amaro Bràulio was born in Bormio 140 years ago.
Now as then, it is made with care and dedication using selected mountain herbs, for a strong, unique flavour – like the Valtellina itself.
The Bràulio story starts in the Nineteenth century, in the pharmacy of Doctor Giuseppe Peloni, a great connoisseur of aromatic plants and herbs.
His son Francesco, who ran the pharmacy after him, inherited this passion and made numerous experiments in herbal infusions and beverages.
So it was that one day he invented Amaro Bràulio, without ever revealing to anyone which plants he used and in which proportions, except to his son Attilio, who published a booklet in 1936 with the emblematic title “In herbis salus”, which however only partly divulged the secret recipe.
Today, visitors to the Peloni family archives can view the historic collection of plants and herbs, in the botanical tables from the start of the last century, saved and restored by Egidio Tarantola Peloni, the present generation of the Peloni family.
