Luxardo Cherries

Hello world. Today I’d like to offer a valuable piece of information regarding Luxardo Maraschino Cherries.

DO NOT STORE LUXARDO MARASCHINO CHERRIES IN THE FRIDGE AS THEY WILL CRYSTALIZE. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT YOU STORE THEM IN A COOL, DARK PLACE OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT, SUCH AS IN A CUPBOARD.

Easy enough, right? And well worth it, as these cherries are quite spectacular. How spectacular? Well, they serve as the base for Luxardo Maraschino, which legendary cocktail historian David Wondrich describes as, “An object of cult worship among mixologists. Its presence is as good as a sign saying, EXCELLENT DRINKS MADE HERE.”

So these little cherries are quite significant, and they are perfect for garnishing your favorite cocktails. Luxardo owns and manages the largest Marasca sour cherry orchards in Europe, with 30,000 trees located on the Euganean Hills near Padua and Venice in the Veneto region of Northeastern Italy. It is from these orchards that Luxardo Maraschino cherries are sourced, with the final product consisting of whole, pitted cherries packed in pure Marasca cherry syrup. Luxardo Cherries are available in a 400 gram jar (approx. 75 cherries), 3KG tin (approx. 500 cherries and 5.6KG tin (approx. 1000 cherries).
