The history of the Caffo family business dates back to the end of the nineteenth century, when Giuseppe Caffo, the Master Distiller, class of 1865, began distilling pomace on the side of volcanic Mount Etna. After years of experience trading and managing distilleries, his dream became reality when in 1915 he bought an old distillery in Santa Venerina, Sicily.
Caffo distillery gradually began producing and becoming renowned on the market for certain liqueurs obtained from ancient recipes. These products, the fruit of wise dosing of aromatic and medicinal herbs, infused with top quality alcohol, immediately pleased drinks connoisseurs and the refined clientele of that age. Sebastiano Caffo (1901) began to learn his father’s secrets of such an ancient and noble profession, soon becoming a "Master Distiller” himself. He demonstrated his ability to not only manage the family business, but also other distilleries which he took over, including the San Paolo Distillery in Noto and Castiglione Distillery in Sicily.
Throughout the years, the business expanded in Italy and established a number of subsidiaries abroad in Germany and USA. Their ancient liqueur recipe endures and is loved by many across the globe.
