In 1996 in Agerola, Michele Mascolo founded L'Alambicco, an artisan - liquor workshop. His belief was in a business that could place more importance in local, antique liquors and the values they represent in our culture; like respect for the environment and a final quality product; due to a small and well regulated, seasonal production.

At the same time, he also wanted to discover new flavors in an attempt to win back those members of the public who had become estranged to traditional liquors. After years of perseverance, along with encouragement and appreciation from his clients and friends, he is now well on the road to achieving all his aims.
