The Story

The year was 1943: a very dark time when spirits were low and freedom was threatened. The botanical pharmacist Achille Foletto, working as a lieutenant at the military hospital in Riva sul Garda, used the language of botany to evoke feelings of hope and retribution among his patients. The aromatic freshness of Garda lemons, the floral grace of the Trentino mountains and the herbal essence of Dolomite roots bring this refined bitter elixir to life. Transported by bicycle, it was drunk in secret by patients and soldiers alike in the hospital's basements.

About FOLETTO

Brand Story

Foletto’s story began in 1850, when its founder Giovanni began production in Ledro, a small valley in the heart of the Alps. Now in its fifth generation of apothecary pharmacists, the company continues to produce syrups and spirits with botanical from the Alps and Lake Garda. Original pharmacy rooms and furnishings dating back over 130 years sit in the rooms above the spirit production laboratories, including: original stills, pestles, recipe books, and a herbarium created by Dr. Angelo Foletto in the 19th century containing over 2,700 botanical spices.
