Luxardo Maraschino Originale Liqueur

70cl | 32% ABV | Italy

Luxardo Maraschino Originale is still produced according to a special formula created by Girolamo Luxardo in 1821. It is an essential cocktail ingredient.

Crystal clear in colour, the aroma is typical of Marasca cherry distillate with strong alcohol spirit and roasted nuttiness, while the taste results smooth but sharp at the same time with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and orange marmalade.

About this product

Marasca cherries, leaves and branches are put in alcoholic infusion in vats for up to three years. Once ready, this mix is distilled in copper pot stills. The distillate is then allowed to mature in ash-wood vats, before water and sugar are added.

Girolamo Luxardo (a representative of the Kingdom of Sardinia), moved to Zara with his family in 1817, where his wife Maria became especially interested in perfecting Rosolio Marachino. Six generations have since been at the helm.

Founded in Zara in 1821, Luxardo became one of the largest distilleries in the Austro – Hungarian Empire. At the end of WWI, Zara became incorporated into the Kingdom of Italy and after WWII they rebuilt the distillery in Torreglia.

"Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin has a pungent marasca cherry aroma with intense juniper notes. The initial taste is typical of gin with spicy and long lasting sour aftertaste. The label work is brilliantly complex"
