Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
About Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
A discerning drink is worth its weight in cherries and Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur is the cherry on top. There are countless imitation cherry liqueurs out there, but Luxardo is what they're all trying to duplicate. The Luxardo marasca cherries, earmarked for greatness at the start of every summer, are what give this liqueur its distinct sweet yet vibrant flavor. Not just any tipple, this is a bottle for those with refined palettes, cocktail enthusiasts who crave a world of high-quality, inventive cocktails at their fingertips. It's the sort of libation you'll be thrilled to have in your home bar, especially when you fancy shaking things up a bit.
If you're one such passionate cocktailer, you can procure this classic liqueur at Curiada, where the marvellous world of spirits awaits. With their swift 2-5 day delivery, you can start exploring cocktails like the Lost Lake sooner rather than later.
“The Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, a low- ABV Italian liqueur made from the marasca cherry, has offered up a handful of recipes for the liqueur-curious. These recipes include easy-to-make classics like the Hemingway Daiquiri, and other enticing cocktails, so grab a bottle of Luxardo and be prepared to master the art of at-home mixology.”- Forbes
Clear and bright, this cherry-flavored liqueur has an aroma more reminiscent of an eau de vie than a traditional liqueur. The palate, however, reveals a different story. Its texture is creamy and viscous, sugary at the start with an underlying heat, culminating in a vibrant cherry flavor that truly shines through.
Although it might prove a bit too thick and sweet to drink on its own, it's obvious why this liqueur is crucial in rounding out classic cocktails like the Last Word and Aviation.
As for substitutes, there are a number of less vibrant cherry liqueurs on the market, but none quite captures the magic of Luxardo. More than a liqueur, it's a tradition, a taste of Italy, and a toast to good taste.
- Classic: The Aviation is always a winner: dry gin, lemon juice, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
- Unexpected: Do as they do in Rome, sip neat as an after dinner drink. Also ideal spooned over fresh fruits like strawberries, pineapples, or peaches.
Anders Erickson, "I always like to have a bottle of Luxardo Maraschino handy for a number of classic cocktails."
Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur is made from Sour Marasca cherries, a prized possession of the Luxardo family. The family cultivates these cherries in the lush orchards nestled within the Euganean Hills in Veneto. Girolamo Luxardo's special formula, crafted in 1821, still serves as the blueprint to produce this exquisite liqueur.
With the arrival of summer comes the cherry harvest. Orchard harvesters gather the cherries, branches, and leaves and place them in larchwood vats for two years, infusing them with neutral alcohol. This infusion, solids and all, is then distilled thoughtfully. The cherry distillate then ages gracefully in large Finnish ash wood vats for a period of 12-18 months.
