The Fratelli Branca Distillerie plant in Milan is a world on its own.
Built between 1908 and 1913, the huge facilities at 2, Via Resegone, were once located in the countryside, bordering the city. Today they are comprised within the south area of the Bovisa neighborhood.
The plant covers an area of over 23,000 sqm, hosting laboratories for the analysis of herbs, for the distillation and quality control, as well as warehouses larger than a football pitch, designed for the maturation and ageing process of liqueurs in oak casks.
The building still functions as the Fratelli Branca Distillerie production headquarters. Another production facility is located in Tortuiguitas, Argentina.
In cooperation with Eataly and the museum services of the city of Turin, Fratelli Branca Distillerie has opened a museum devoted to the history of the Carpano brand and of vermouth.
The Carpano Museum is located on the first floor of the former plant, where visitors can re-experience a journey started from Turin in 1786 – when Antonio Benedetto Carpano invented the king's favorite drink in the old shop located in Piazza Castello – which goes on today in Milan with Fratelli Branca.
