Luxardo Italian Liqueur 750ml
$76.99 price per bottle
This is a real treat for those in search of the obscure and abstract. One of very few liqueurs in the world produced by distillation, this is made from a sour cherry variety exclusively cultivated by Luxardo, the Marasca. The distillate is matured in Finnish ash wood vats for two years - without imparting any wood flavor or color. The liqueur has a crystal clear appearance with an intense perfumed nose of fresh cherry juice and nuances of almond and honey. On the palate, a luxurious texture - like liquid cherry pie with a slightly bitter aftertaste - makes it all the more interesting. This is the secret ingredient to some of the world's best cocktail recipes and as a beverage on its own, will add a great compliment to an array of pastries and cakes. A staple for any proper bar.
