• LUXARDO •
Established in 1821, and still 100% controlled by the founding family, Luxardo is one of the oldest European firms producing liqueurs.
Transferred to Torreglia (Padova) in 1947 due to the consequences of the Second World War, it is now a leader in the liqueurs industry and one of the few proprietary brands present in almost all the international markets.
The firm owns over 20.000 Marasca Luxardo cherry trees, cultivated in industrial nurseries and is the only company with such agricultural installation in the European Union.

Maraschino Luxardo is a classic. The typical straw 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 color even after many years of maturing), and is then diluted and sugared.
