Luxardo

Luxardo is a leading name in liqueurs and distilled drinks. It started in Italy in the early 19th century. The brand is known for its high-quality liqueurs, especially its maraschino liqueur. This liqueur is key in many cocktails.

The History

Girolamo Luxardo founded the company in 1821 in Zara, now in Croatia. The company made a liqueur from marasca cherries. Girolamo's wife, Maria Canevari, created the recipe. It involved crushing the whole fruit and fermenting it before distillation. After four years of refining, Maraschino Luxardo became popular.

The Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur is clear with a smooth taste. It has hints of cherry and almond from the cherry pits. This makes it popular in many cocktails, like the Aviation and Hemingway Daiquiri.

Over the years, Luxardo expanded its range. They keep their focus on quality and tradition.

The company also makes liqueurs like Cherry Sangue Morlacco, Apricot, and Passione Nera (blackberry). These use natural fruit infusions without artificial additives. They are great for mixing and sipping.

The fruit liqueurs are authentic. They own cherry orchards to ensure quality. This control from tree to bottle means each sip reflects the brand's history and flavour.

Other Products

Luxardo also makes grappa, an Italian pomace brandy. This adds to their range of Italian products.

The Luxardo family has faced challenges, including losing their original distillery in World War II. They moved to Torreglia, Italy. The family still runs the company, now in its sixth generation. They ensure their traditions and high standards continue.
