The company was founded in 1901 by Luigi Gozio at Gussago, a town in the splendid hilly region of Franciacorta, in the Province of Brescia. In these charming surroundings, Luigi Gozio, using traditional methods, began an activity that had already been rooted in the area for centuries, the collection and distillation of pressed-grape dregs and wine sediment.
Today, Distillerie Franciacorta is a leading brand name in the industry. Company philosophy involves quality excellence and product characteristics that are unchanging over the years and has always tried to combine, as successfully as possible, technological evolution with traditional recipes and production methods.
One of the most characteristic brands of the company is Gozio Amaretto which is a symbol of Italian quality. Gozio Amaretto is produced using only the highest quality natural ingredients: alcohol, burnt sugar and the pure essence of various selected fruits coming from four continents. Only the best quality bitter almonds are used in the recipe to enhance its bouquet, aroma and taste. Gozio Amaretto is 100% natural and is been distributed by WSK since 2013.
