Luxardo Bitter Bianco - Spirits Worth Raising

Luxardo Bitter Bianco

Girolamo Luxardo moved to what is today known as Zadar, Croatia in 1817 as a consular representative of Sardinia. It was his wife that became enamored with the local Dalmatian liqueur, the Rosolio Maraschino. In 1821 Girolamo opened a distillery and soon after received a certificate from the emperor of Austria that acknowledged its exceptional quality. Their liqueurs became known far and wide along with their growing and impressive range which included the Original Maraschino Cherries, Limoncello, and a cherry liqueur.By 1913 the company had grown considerably, opening a new state-of-the-art distillery. The operation along with the Luxardo bloodline barely made it through the Second World War, but a new distillery with its very own cherry orchards thrives today in Torreglia, the Veneto region of Northeast Italy. It employs traditional copper-pot stills while constantly upgrading and investing to stay at the forefront of the industry. The company remains family-owned and is ran by the fifth, sixth, and seventh generations of the Luxardo family. Their flagship Maraschino liqueur and a range of award-winning products are a cocktail staple, along with cherries, syrups, wines, brandies, and many others.Luxardo Bitter Bianco marks the return of the worlds first clear Italian liqueur. Made using the signature recipe from the 1930s it contains the same infusions of botanicals as the Luxardo Bitter Rosso (rhubarb, thyme, bitter orange), except that they are distilled before blending, resulting in a higher proof. The clear liquid brings a lighter twist to cocktails such as the Bianco Negroni or Bianco Spritz.Grab a bottle today!
