The history of OTTOZ liqueurs began in 1875, when, the young Laurent, founder of the company, like many of his peers, emigrated to France at the tender age of eight years, here he approached the world of spirits working in a transalpine distillery. In the following years in Marsiglia, in the district of the old port, opened the famous "Cafè des Alpins" from here supplied the district with its liqueurs.
He returned to his homeland in 1902, and in the centre of Aosta bought a coffee bar where he started producing Genepy, known and sold as Alpine Liqueur Elixir Genepy. With great skill in the advertising campaign and in the promotion of his product, he succeeded in making his brand known throughout Italy. For many years the OTTOZ genepy was therefore the only symbol of the typical Aosta Valley’s product for those who loved our valley.
