Nata dalla passione e dalla profonda conoscenza erboristica di Girolamo Varnelli quasi 150 anni fa, la Distilleria Varnelli si fregia con orgoglio della licenza UTIF n° 1.

Number one as the long tradition of Distilleria Varnelli as the first company in the Marche region to start spirits production.


Full-flavoured liqueur

The “shoemaker's liqueur” is the expression of a popular tradition born in the early 1900s in the workshops of high-skilled shoemakers from Marche, Central Italy. When they didn’t have spiked coffee at their disposal, they used to drink and offer their customers a freshly prepared cicchetto (a small shot of liqueur) by combining coffee liqueur with the unique and unmistakable flavour of Varnelli's special dry aniseed. With its full-bodied and fragrant flavour, Varnelli spread in the bars of the area until it became a true classic.

How to enjoy it

Calzolaro Varnelli is excellent straight or on the rocks. Today it is highly appreciated as an ingredient for cocktails, shaken coffee and on ice cream.
