Our family founded this historic distillery in 1847 in Angera, on the shores of Lake Maggiore.
During these 170 years of history, 5 generations have passionately carried on this family tradition with the desire to spread the Italian culture of good drinking.
Bernardo Rossi, in the picture with his father Arturo Rossi, begins to produce the first distilled notes
The first discontinuous steam boiler stills are used
Arturo Rossi, nephew of Bernardo, opens the Arturo Rossi Distillery. A period of systematic grappa production begins with a very dense territorial distribution network
At the outbreak of the First World War, Arturo was called to serve his country. In the company remains the wife, Annetta Zingaro, who took over the reins of the factory, thanks also to the “epistolary” help of her husband
The Arturo Rossi distillery incorporates the historic Fratelli Rossi d’Angera, the company of grandfather Bernardo and his father Carlo, turning years later into Rossi d’Angera distillers
The company receives the Royal Coat of Arms with the legend “Patent of the Royal House of Savoy”, conferred by King Vittorio Emanuele III to Arturo Rossi, recognition of which still today few companies in Italy can boast
A series of new products are presented on the market: the Spitz, aperitif based on gentian, and the Bitter, aperitif invented right in the family with a secret recipe of officinal herbs. The “Aperitivo d’Antan” ritual is born, which is still respected today in many Italian bars
Years engaged in the construction of working ties with other companies and associations of the territory, as well as a large participation in the various national competitions
Rossi d’Angera opens up to international markets: major changes not only from the point of view of distribution but also in the marketing, communication and packaging sectors
The first Flag Store opens in the historic building of Viale Valganna 34, in Varese
