Luxardo Maraschino Rating:3

Imagen Luxardo Maraschino

Family:Other Liqueur


Maraschino Luxardo is a  classic. The typical straw-plaited coated bottle is by now a true icon on the mass consumption scenario. It is one of the very few liqueurs in the world produced by distillation. It is obtained from the marasca, a sour cherry variety exclusively cultivated by Luxardo. The distillate is allowed to mature for two years in Finnish ash vats (this wood does not lend its colour even after many years of maturing), and is then diluted and sugared. 



Maraschino Luxardo es un clásico. El típico revestimiento trenzado pajizo de la botella es por ahora un auténtico símbolo del escenario del consumo de masas. Es uno de los pocos licores del mundo producido por destilación. Se obtiene de la marascha, una cereza ácida, variedad exclusiva cultivada por Luxardo. La destilación deja madurar por dos años en tanques de fresno fineses (esta madera no deja su color incluso años después de maduración), y luego se diluye y endulza.

Tasting notes
  • Colour: clear.
  • Perfume: typical of marasca distillate, with an excellent intense aroma, fine and well amalgamated, without any aggressive notes.
  • 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. 


Packaging: 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 information. 

Serving suggestions:

  • Neat or on the rocks as an after-dinner drink.
  • With iced tonic water. 
  • In orange juice for a refreshing drink. 
  • Added to coffee.
