Sicilian bitter Monte Erice produced by Distilleria Giuseppe Bianchi srl, founded in the 50s by Leone Bianchi, Tuscan by birth, but Sicilian by adoption. Born in 1903, he began his activity as a wholesaler of wines that led him to make the decision, in the 50s, to transfer his company to Sicily, in order to have a more direct control over the consignments of wine to be purchased. It opens a warehouse in Marsala which will soon become a production winery and subsequently also grappa distillery in 1962 and liqueurs and brandies in 1967. Mount Erice is a bitter territory, starting from its name, dedicated to the beautiful fortified town in the province of Trapani, rich in monuments, churches and a monastery. The origin of the recipe could be traced back to the nuns of the cloistered convent of San Carlo.
