The Bosco Liquori company was established in Cosenza in 1864, only three years after the unification of Italy, by Raffaello Bosco who had the merit of having prepared the first and original recipe, which designated the birth of the liqueur Amaro Silano an elixir of exclusive taste, made with precious herbs of Calabria. Before then, the liqueur were prepared almost exclusively at home by peasants who worked distilling typical herbs from the natural habitat in Mediterranean basin. The liqueur Amaro Silano and Anice were immediately appreciated for their quality and original taste, becoming the favourite liqueur of the rich families. Taking advantage of technical progress, the tiny distillery became soon a real company. Over the years the company has developed a strong tradition and innovation through a new management approach.
