A story of passion

The Distillery Bordiga was born in 1888 with the creation of the original recipe of Vermouth di Torino developed by Cavalier Pietro Bordiga, passionate herbalist, profound connoisseur of alpine botanicals and oriental spices. Given the success of this first product, Pietro Bordiga he decides to open his own distillery and to do so he chooses Cuneo. A choice dictated both by his origins, his family was originally from Valle Grana, and by the location of the city: very close to the Langhe and at the foot of the Alps.
