Tuaca (Italian pronunciation: [tuˈaːka]) is a brand of liqueur originally produced by the Tuoni and Canepa families of Livorno, Italy. Brown-Forman of Louisville, Kentucky acquired Tuaca in 2002 and sold it to Sazerac Company in 2016. March 31, 2010, marked the closure of Livorno's historic Tuaca plant.
The liquor was first created as Brandy Milk, produced with milk, brandy and vanilla. Later on, milk was dropped from the recipe, and the name was changed to Tuoca. In the 1960s, Mario di Grazia, an Italian and the owner of a chain of liquor stores in San Francisco, began selling the liquor in the United States. After that, in order to make easier the pronunciation in English the name changed again to Tuaca.
