Luxardo was founded in Zara in 1821, a port city on the Dalmatian coast (now part of Croatia) which had been, for more than six centuries, an itnegral part of the "Serenissima" replublic of Venice. The Second World War brought with it devastating consequences for the Luxardo family and it appeared then, that after more than a century of activity, the Luxardo firm was destined to disappear. The fourth generation Girogio Luxardo had the vourage and vision to rebuild the present plant at Torreglia (Padova) in the Veneto region, together with the young fifth generation Nicolo. And so a new chapter in the ongoing family history was opened. Today the sixth generation of the family is active in the company, manufacturing the Maraschino which made their name known by bartenders all over the world, as well as a full line of classic Italian liqueurs such as Sambuca, Amaretto and Limoncello.
A berried, spicy liqueur.
