From the early 1700s, the Buton family began perfecting the noble distillatory art in France; they developed formulas and secrets which were carefully concealed in a precious notebook, destined to be handed down from generation to generation: The Buton Recipe Book. The success of their spirits was such that they earned the coveted title of suppliers of the imperial house of Napoleon I. When the regime fell, Jean, the most talented of the Buton heirs, decided to embark on a long journey to Italy, but not without bringing his family’s famous recipe book along.
Always drawn to inspiration, creativity and the traditional Italian wine-making art, Jean immediately realised that he had arrived in the “land of great wines” he had been seeking. He decided to settle in Emilia-Romagna, where he found the perfect grapes, the right climate and an environment full of culture and inspiration to refine his distillatory art. In 1820, with the help of a local entrepreneur, Jean set up an experimental distillery in Bologna.
More than one hundred years later, in 1939, the company chose to enhance the product’s Italian personality and renamed it Vecchia Romagna Buton Brandy. This period was marked by two gambles that paid off: the introduction of the Bacchus image and the creation of the unmistakable triangular bottle .
The Vecchia Romagna is known as the Crowning Jewel of the range. It’s a distinctive product with a bold, elegant taste that is produced as a result of a double distillation and double ageing process. – Distillery Notes
