Founded in 1868 by Girolamo Varnelli, the Varnelli Distillery is now at the fourth generation and is run by four women. The founder lived in the heart of the Sibillini Mountains, now a National Park, and, studying medicinal plants of Marche Region, thought about many liqueurs recipes, including the famous Amaro Sibilla, much used as antimalarial and antipyretic in the past.Anyway, the great invention of the family was made by his son Antonio Varnelli that, interpreting and refining the widespread prescription of Marche anisette, created the "Varnelli": strong, elegant and unique anise-flavored drink that quickly became the flagship of the Varnelli Distillery enough to carry on the family name. Keeping artisanal production techniques unchanged in nearly two centuries, Varnelli Family produces liqueurs and spirits scrupulously respecting the tradition and ever updating and proposing more lively and attentive to the needs of the market without altering the quality and intrinsic value of the products. All this has ensured and continues to keep the recognition and the great loyalty of the most demanding and refined palates to Varnelli’s products all over the world.
