Bailoni is heralded as the first apricot distillery in Wachau. The independently owned family company
formed in 1872 when grappa distiller Eugenio Bailoni from Vigolo Vattro, Trentino visted Austria and fell in love. Eugino and his wife, Rosa, founded the first apricot distillery in the Wachau Valley. The signature bottle was created in the early 20th century. Today, the company remains in a 350+ year old building. The family business is now run by the 5th generation.
