The Luxardo family have been distilling fine liqueurs in the Veneto region of Italy for six generations. They make their amaretto with the pure paste of the finest almonds, from Avola in southern Sicily, and age it for eight months in Larchwood vats.

The slim, angular shaped-bottle was graced with a new retro modernist-style label in spring 2021 to coincide with Luxardo's 200th aniversary. With the new label came a reduced alcohol strength from 28% to 24% alc./vol..

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/05/2021


Clear, bright burnished copper with golden highlights.


Pungent, attractive toasted almond and marzipan.


Lightly syrupy with macaroon, toasted bitter almond, black tea tannins, madeira, battenberg cake and zesty lemon.


Long, toasted almond, marzipan with lingering burnt toast bitterness.


Smells and tastes like amaretti biscuits with rich marzipan and toasted almond. Slightly sweeter than some other amarettos.
