Product of: Italy
Lazzaroni Amaretto has been produced and bottled since 1851 in the Italian town of Saronno, where it was developed by Paolo and Davide Lazzaroni. It shares the same branding with the Amaretti del Chiostro di Saronno cookies and is made by infusing these with alcohol rather than from an essence.

Clear, coppery golden amber.
Pungent honeycomb, dried apricot, bitter almond and marzipan.
Rich and syrupy with caramel, marzipan, macaroon, madeira, battenberg cake and apricot.
Marzipan, apricot, toasted almond, honeycomb toffee, chocolate and mild spice.
Sweeter than some other amarettos with pronounced battenberg cake flavours and honeycomb toffee notes.
