To create Galliano, Arturo Vaccari turned to Fratelli Maraschi SPA, a company established in 1888 in Torino. This area of Italy is famous for its Prosecco, vermouth and aromatic wines. Today, Fratelli Maraschi is known as Maraschi & Quirici, situated in Chieri, a small town high in the foothills of the Italian Alps, just outside Torino. The location of Maraschi & Quirici is important, not only due to it being where Vaccari first created his liqueur in 1896, but because this is where so many of the herbs and spices used in Galliano grow. Though now residing in a modern factory, the standards of Maraschi & Quirici founders prevail. The distillers are celebrated for the quality of their extracts. To this day, Maraschi & Quirici shapes the essence of the incomparable taste and aroma of Galliano. Galliano is distilled in two small (less than 100 liters) traditional copper pot stills, which Maraschi & Quirici reserve for the production of this Italian spirit.
