produced and left to age for up to three years in cellars that were
purpose-built in the 19th and 20th centuries, located in the historic
pedestrian street Via Roma in the centre of Bormio. The cellars house the
large, much-prized Slavonian oak barrels where the liqueur is jealously guarded
while it ages. The infusion and filtration processes take place in the
subterranean cellars, where the alcohol is also stored and aged. The cellars
were recently refurbished and were expanded from 4,880 sqm to 6,516 sqm, with
the aim of doubling production over three years.
