Our Origin

Emilio Mignone

Our grandfather, Emilio Mignone, who was born in 1880, founded the company Emilio Mignone & Co. in 1917. The business was a supplier of general goods, from food and drinks to metalwork, construction materials, sale of fuel and storage of grain, as well as selling insurance policies. It closed in 1983.

”He was a tireless worker, an example of perseverance and a product of his own personal effort. ”


As a tribute to him, we have chosen his name for our distillery which was formally registered on 3rd December, 2015, shortly before the centenary of the foundation of Emilio Mignone & Co. by our grandfather.

The same innovative spirit, inherited from our grandfather, has motivated us in the creation of the Distillery Emilio Mignone & Co., with the objective of producing a Single Malt of excellence on the terroir of our origin.

nuestra historia

Whisky EM&C

Our family, descendants of Italian immigrants, arrived at Buenos Aires in 1860, with the First Great Immigration received in Argentina. They settled in Luján (Province of Buenos Aires) in 1867, where they located an inn (a food and beverage trade house, open for overnight stays, which was used by travelers and farmers).
