ABOUT THIS LIQUEUR
Luxardo Maraschino Originale is still produced according to a special formula created by Girolamo Luxardo in 1821.

When Luxardo marasca cherries are harvested at the beginning of every summer, they are put in alcoholic infusion in larch-wood vats together with some leaves and branches of the same trees for up to three years. When ready, both the liquid and the solid parts are distilled in traditional copper pot stills, separating the heart from heads and tails. Only the heart of the distillate is then allowed to mature in ash-wood vats. The last process consists in transforming the distillate in liqueur by adding a simple syrup of water and sugar lowering the ABV to 32%. 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. The tall green bottle with its red cap is still hand-plaited in straw within the company, and resembles the Maraschino bottles produced in Zara in the early days, where the straw was placed in order to prevent damage during transportation. Luxardo Maraschino Originale can be enjoyed in many classic cocktails or neat as an after dinner drink. It is also ideal over fruits such as strawberries, pineapples, oranges etc. or as a flavour in confectionary and ice creams.

About Luxardo

The firm was founded in 1821 by Girolamo Luxardo in the city of Zadar, Croatia, at the time part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Luxardo had moved to Zadar with his family in 1817, as the consular representative of the Kingdom of Sardinia. His wife (Maria Canevari) produced liqueurs at home, specializing in "rosolio maraschino", a liquor from Dalmatia, and Luxardo founded the distillery to produce Liquore Maraschino. Within eight years of existence, the Luxardo Maraschino was recognised a superior product by the Emperor. Girolamo Luxardo died in 1865 at age 81, and his son Nicolò took over the business. Traditional copper pot stills, aging vats, marasca cherry orchards, warehouses and brand new bottling lines are all pillars that distinguish the Luxardo distillery still today, as it was in the past. Today, the distillery is at its seventh generation of Luxardo leadership. Girolamo’s legacy lives on in both his descendants, and his products.

About Liqueur

First prepared by 13th century Italian monks as herbal medicines and elixirs, Liqueurs are distilled spirits that have been combined with flavoring agents. A range of herbs, spices, nuts, fruits and flowers can be used, and a sweetener such as sugar or corn syrup is often added. While typically rather sweet, some examples are herbaceous or tart and pair exceptionally well with desserts or act as a delightful addition to cocktails.
