Maraschino liqueur

[Maraschino bottle]

Maraschino is a clear, relatively dry liqueur made from Marasca cherries, including the crushed pits which give it a subtle bitter almond flavor. The cherries are processed and distilled much like brandy, and later combined with a pure cane syrup before it is aged and filtered.

There are several distillers of this liqueur, but one of the foremost brands are produced by the Italian company Luxardo (see links)

Maraschino liqueur should not be confused with the juice from Maraschino cherries or other cherry liqueurs, that are both much sweeter.
