Luxardo Maraschino follows the original recipe from 1821 and requires four years to produce this specialty. 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.
Alcohol strength: 32% alc vol.
Shelf life: Indefinite
Perfume: typical of marasca distillate, with an excellent intense aroma, fine and well amalgamated, without any aggressive note.
Taste: smooth but sharp, a sweet liqueur unusual for the punch of the distillate, which can be clearly perceived in spite of the moderate alcohol content. A rounded taste and a surprisingly persistent aroma.
Patented round bottle in green glass, with a red capsule and a hand fitted straw wrap-around. The label includes some of the many medals won in international competitions from the mid 19th century to the present. The rear label contains serving suggestions and legal wordings.
