Luxardo Limoncello 70cl
In the summer, Luxardo picks their marasca cherries. They soak them in alcohol with leaves and branches from the same trees for up to three years. After that, they distill both the liquid and solid parts in copper pot stills, keeping the best part called the heart. This heart matures in ash-wood vats. Finally, they make it into a liqueur by adding water, sugar, and lowering the alcohol level.
The drink is clear and smells like marasca cherry with a strong alcohol spirit and roasted nuttiness. The taste is smooth but sharp, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, and orange marmalade. The bottle is tall and green with a red cap, hand-plaited in straw like the old Maraschino bottles from Zara. Luxardo Maraschino Originale is great in cocktails or on its own after dinner. You can also enjoy it over fruits like strawberries, pineapples, oranges, or use it in sweets and ice creams.
