The production of “maraschino liqueur” began in Zara during the Middle Ages. The oldest recipe dates back to the sizteenth century.
Lazzaroni Maraschino is made from the Marasca Cherries, including the pits that are crushed to give the liqueur a subtle bitter almond flavor. The Marasca cherry is a small cherry that is dark with a bitter taste and dry pulp. The liqueur is clear and relatively dry. Lazzaroni has been producing Maraschino since 1860. (Alc. 24% by Vol.)

“Copper color. Attractive complex aromas of cherry bubblegum and cordial, circus peanut, floral jasmine tea, and delicate spices with a satiny, bright, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, involved, medium-length citrus cream, pepper, orange blossom honey, and pistachio brittle finish. A delicious and elegant fruit liqueur.”
