The name Crodino derives from a comune in the province of Verbano Cusio Ossola, Crodo, Italy, where it has been bottled since 1964.


It is used to make sixteen rum, a cocktail of Piedmont.[citation needed] It is also used in John Duff's famous Panty Dropper cocktail, invented at his Sycamore Drive ranch.
