Candied cherries soaked in Luxardo marasca cherry syrup.
These are candied cherries soaked in Luxardo marasca cherry syrup. The percentage of marasca cherries in jars and tins is around 50 % and so is the percentage of syrup.
No thickening agents of any kind or preservatives are used and the dark red colour is completely natural. Its unique taste comes from the marasca cherry syrup which is made from the same juice used to prepare the infusion of the "Sangue Morlacco" cherry liqueur.
A state-of-the-art pasteurisation system guarantees the highest level of preservation and safety. The candying process of Luxardo's original maraschino cherries gives the fruit a crunchy texture that is rare to find among competing brands. Today, as in the golden age of cocktails, Luxardo's original maraschino cherries are used in the world's best bars and by the most famous mixologists as a garnish in their creations.
