About Cap Corse Mattei
An emblematic product of the MATTEI brand, Cap Corse was created in 1872 by Louis-Napoléon Mattei. This colonial period was profitable for him because he could easily export his products on the international markets. Louis-Napoléon Mattei died in 1907, the company was then developed by his nephew François Mattei.
He created a multitude of advertising objects bearing the effigy of the Cap Corse Mattei that we all know (ashtrays, card games, jugs...). He continued his rise by placing his product on different communication media, notably in the film César by Marcel Pagnol in 1936. François Mattei died in 1967. The company went bankrupt in 1977 and after liquidation it was taken over in 1981 by SOVICAP.
In 2016, 3 Corsican entrepreneurs bought the brand and created "La Distillerie". Already awarded many times in the past, in 2017, L.N. Mattei is again rewarded for the excellence of Cap Corse Mattei. It was selected by a panel of internationally renowned mixologists to be among the 100 best innovations of the year. The return of Cap Corse Mattei on the international scene is under the best auspices. The reconquest is on its way!
