Savio S.R.L – A Company Into International Alcohol Market

Savio S.R.L. – A Company In Chatillon For Over 55 Years In The International Alcohol Market.


Savio S.R.L. was founded in 1958 by Paolino Savio and has always dealt with the marketing of liqueurs, sugar and coffee. The Company is located in Chatillon, in Aosta Valley, in the North Western area of Italy, right on the border with France and Switzerland.

Paolino Savio started as a coffee brewer and then decided to introduce the sugar and even the trade of spirits, both nationally and internationally, developing a wide range of clients who, at times even became suppliers.

In the 90s, the keen business skills of Marco Savio, son of Paolino Savio, has contributed to the development of new products and brands, Génépy to Vodke and Rum. Marco dreamed of leaving his native country to seek adventure and opportunity. Marco becomes a jet-setting spirits importer and exporter, traversing the globe to find the rarest, most exquisite libations and introducing them to the world. Determined to find a distiller and blender capable of producing the most exquisite rums available, Marco met and hooked up with the legendary Cuban Rum-maker, Francisco “Don Pancho” Francisco Fernandez.

Savio S.R.L is going to exhibit at the 2019 Internation Bulk Wine and Spirits Show in London,UK on March 11-12, 2019. To meet them at the event, register your Visitor Pass HERE
