In 1821 Girolamo Luxardo, a merchant decided to establish his own distillery and thus became the manufacturer of superb liqueurs and built the Luxardo brand in the port town of Zara which is now in the country Croatia but at the time was part of the republic of Venice.
Girolamo Luxardos wife Maria spent her time at home making and perfecting liqueur.
Her liqueurs caught the attention of connoisseurs which motivated the family to found their own distillery.
In 1905 the family produced special the Luxardo limoncello liqueur which is traditionally drunk after meals in Italy.
The 2nd world war interfered with the production and the distillery was just about totally destroyed. Luckily for us the facilities were re-built by the 4th generation in Torreglia in the Veneto region off Italy and now enjoys the success that it has worked so hard to achieve.
Currently the company is in the hand of the sixth generation and is run exclusively by family members who also keep the family recipes secret.
Their first class products include Grappa, Amaretto, and Sambuca. The company also has a successful gourmet division which includes a range of liqueur concentrates for the baking industry and ice-cream manufacturers as well as cherry jam and fruit syrups.
This golden Luxardo limoncello liqueur is ideal for pure enjoyment on ice or in combination with a fresh Prosecco.
Cocktail lovers also love this liqueur. The Luxardo limoncello liqueur works particularly well to mix trendy cocktails such as the Italian 'Bananello' due to its harmonious sweetness and the full-bodied flavor of fresh lemons.
