The Braulio Cellars
The Braulio is one of the symbols of the "Magnifica Terra", a bitter among the most appreciated and with an unmistakable taste. The bitter was created in 1875, when the pharmacist Francesco Peloni combined some medicinal herbs in an alchemy.
Braulio is made from a mixture of traditional aromatic herbs, berries and carefully selected roots. The exact recipe has never been revealed to the public and the secret of its ingredients has been handed down for 3 generations for 140 years.
In addition to the ingredients, the bitter Braulio is also characterised by a unique flavour thanks to the special historical cellars dating back to the 19th and 20th centuries where the liqueur is created and where it can remain to rest for up to three years.
We are talking about an underground labyrinth of 6,516 square metres, which branches out under the streets and houses of the historic centre of Bormio and which, in each of its tunnels, recounts all the care and dedication with which Braulio has always been produced. The cellars of Braulio are home to huge Slavonian oak barrels, precious wood where the local bitterness is jealously guarded to age.
