Disaronno Amaretto is a delectable apricot kernel-infused liqueur of outstanding character. Romanticised legend has it that Disaronno Originale originated in the 1500's, when Bernardino Luini took a lover and muse in the form of a local inn-keeper to shape his inspiration for a painting of the Madonna. As a gift of gratitude she presented him with a delicate amber liquid and thus the story of Amaretto begins. Disaronno Amaretto retains the original amaretto recipe from the ancient tale, infusing alcohol, burnt sugar and 17 herbs and spices in delicate apricot kernel oil.
Italian style finds its expression in this elusive liqueur; an inherently flawless choice for amaretto cocktails, desserts, pancakes, sauces and meat dishes.
Tasting Note: A pleasant aroma suggests spice, apricot and nut. Palate is full and balanced with an apricot, sweet fruit element, marzipan and caramel quality, and a suggestion of almond flavour.
