Bols started making maraschino liqueur around 1830 by distilling the whole cherry resulting in the typical Marasquin flavour. In the 19th century Bols produced two variants of Maraschino: one called Maresquino and the other Crème de Cerises – both were distilled, clear-coloured liqueurs.
Today, Bols Maraschino liqueur is made using a high quality cherry distillate together with fresh cherry juice, some rose oil and other secret ingredients.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 16/03/2012
Very aromatic, clean nose with aromas of cherry, marzipan and rosewater.
Complex and bittersweet with assertive candied cherry, almond and rose petal flavours.
Lingering syrupy mouth feel with lasting cherry, rose petal and roasted almond flavours.
