The Toro Distillery is the tale of a family and a territory, in which it is deeply and historically rooted. The Toros have embedded their bicentennial business in Tocco da Casauria, in a strong bond with its green fields, so close and welcoming: in 1817 the chemist Beniamino Toro senior, created the Centerba, a precious liqueur made of wild and natural plants, wisely blended, select and picked from expert hands on the slopes of the Maiella Madre and Morrone. Today Centerba Toro is a craft product, pride of the liqueurs’ tradition of the Abruzzi, appreciated all over the world. Its secret composition is still the one of the 19th century, scrupulously preserved and passed on descents: a recipe that commemorates the lure of these places and expresses the climates of this land in the most authentic manner
