Arturo Vaccari is the man behind Galliano and the name comes from a tribute to the Italian Hero, Giuseppe Galliano. Giuseppe Galliano was given many awards and instantly promoted for taking charges of the 2000 soldiers in 1895 and retaining the Fort of Enda Jesus against a whopping 80,000 Abyssinian Soldier Army! Not only did he receive these accolades he also gained the title within the Galliano Liqueur.
Arturo Vaccari saw this gap in the market for honoring this fallen hero alongside with the Gold Rush (Where Italians went to America to mine gold). Arturo Saw this opportunity and created a Golden coloured Liqueur to match. This has lived on since and is made with the same recipe as it always has been.
