TUACA is an adventure 500 years in the making. With authentic Italian roots and a taste for the extraordinary, it captures the essence of discovery that defined the Italian Renaissance. TUACA began as a legendary liqueur created for Lorenzo de Mediciruler of Florence and visionary benefactor of renaissance art and architecture. The recipe was rediscovered in 1938, when brothers-in-law Gaetano Tuoni and Giorgio Canepa recreated this intriguing spirit and gave it a new name derived from their ownTUACA. Continuing the tradition of enjoying the unique liqueur and passing it on, American servicemen drank TUACA in Italy during WWII and brought it home to the U.S., introducing it to a whole new generation of adventurers.
TUACA is 100% natural, based on a 500-year-old recipe originating in the hills of Tuscany. The process begins according to tradition with the selection of the finest Italian brandy, ranging from 3 to 10 years old. Its sourced from Faenza, a small city near Bologna, known for producing brandy with a pleasing aroma, amber color and an exceptionally smooth finish. The final presentation is created as the master blender folds the Italian brandy into a blend of natural sugar and fine spirits before adding the crowning touch of soft citrus and vanilla essences.
