The Luxardo Maraschino Cherry represents a crowning achievement of the Italian Luxardo company, a dynasty founded in 1821 and renowned for its cherry-infused liqueurs and exquisite garnishes. Far removed from ordinary maraschino cherries, these gems are the result of a laborious process that begins with the candying of marasca cherries in their own sumptuous syrup, derived from the same juice utilised in Luxardo's esteemed Cherry Liqueur "Sangue Morlacco". This process, combined with an advanced pasteurisation technique, ensures the cherries maintain their distinctive crispness and rich, natural hue​.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Rich, dark red, verging on black, showcasing their natural colour without reliance on artificial dyes.
  • Aroma: Earthy and nutty, with an authentic cherry fragrance promising a taste of genuineness.
  • Flavour: A balanced juxtaposition of tartness and sweetness, closely mirroring the taste of fresh cherries with a layered profile that elevates any culinary or cocktail creation.
  • Texture: Tender yet robust, providing a gratifying bite that is both distinctive and memorable.

The versatility of Luxardo cherries extends well beyond the cocktail glass; they are a superb addition to baking recipes, frozen delights, and gourmet dishes alike. The syrup as well, dense and rich in flavour, is utilised in a variety of culinary applications, offering a hint of tart amaretto flavour​.

However, what truly sets Luxardo cherries apart is their storied history, from their origins in Croatian Dalmatia to surviving the Second World War and thriving in Italy. Today, they are indispensable in prestigious bars across the globe and are essential for serious mixologists. Luxardo cherries enhance classic cocktails like the Manhattan, Rob Roy, and Old Fashioned, adding a layer of sophistication and a burst of flavour to each sip​.​​ 

In conclusion, Luxardo Maraschino Cherries transcend the role of mere garnish; they are a testament to luxury and tradition. Their inclusion in a drink or dish signifies a commitment to quality and an appreciation for the finer aspects of life. Whether you're a cocktail enthusiast or a culinary connoisseur, incorporating Luxardo cherries into your creations promises an experience that is as delightful as it is distinguished.
