From the early 1700s, the Buton family began perfecting the noble distillatory art in France. 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 move to Italy. 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. In 1999, the company was acquired by Gruppo Montenegro which, as a result of its commercial success and fully-renovated historic production facility, has breathed new life into the business, making it a flagship Italian liquor company. A 200 year-long success in which experience, creativity, and innovation have led Vecchia Romagna to create unique brandies with an immutable charm.
