Producer Info:

Luxardo Maraschino follows the original recipe from 1821 and requires four years to produce this specialty.

Tasting note: Very viscous water like colour with watery hue with tenacious cling to the glass. A curious nose offers an enormously perfumed aroma as much akin to the spice rack in mama's pantry than a cherry liqueur though wonderfully appealing regardless.

Penetrating aromas of cherry juice over more subtle notes of fennel, spearmint, anise, sour dough bread and the faintest hint of glace cherry. Wonderful lift. The thick, glycerous palate offers decadently rich flavours of sweet ripe cherry above marzipan and a layer of sweet spice. Silky throughout and very generously textured. Perfect balance. Clean finish. Exceptionally long aftertaste of cherry confectionary and marzipan.

Production: Marasca cherries are harvested from Luxardo’s own trees and the solid components are then infused in larchwood. The product is distilled in small copper pot stills. Finally a combination of sugar and water is added before bottling.
