Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin

$40.00

Luxardo enters the fruit gin category with their Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin, an infusion of the brand’s gin distillate with their proprietary marasca cherry juice. The result is a bright, rich, and sour taste that retains the strong juniper and spice of the original distillate.

"Superbly balanced" - Difford's Guide

 "Fruit flavored gins perfect for wine drinkers... The juice effect evokes a lighters version of sloe gin" - Wine Enthusiast

750ml & 37.5% ABV

Tasting Notes Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin possesses a distinct spicy profile due to its bold selection of nine botanicals including cinchona, and cinnamon. Firm and dry on the palate, it integrates well with traditional cocktail modifiers without becoming overly sweet or cloying. The kirsch like fruitiness derived from the addition of fermented marasca cherry juice is unmistakably Luxardo. 

Ways to Enjoy
Classic: Sour Cherry Gin and Tonic

Unexpected:  Marasca Martini made with a bianco vermouth to mellow the flavor

Production Notes

The base of Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin is made using the recipe for Luxardo’s London Dry Gin (a product not currently available in the U.S.), which can be traced back to the Ginepro di Dalmazia that the family produced in the 1900s.

The recipe contains a careful selection of nine botanicals, including juniper, coriander, iris, angelica, sedge, licorice, cinnamon, cardamom, and bitter orange.

Once distilled in traditional copper pot stills, the gin is infused with Luxardo’s Marasca cherry juice, made from cherries cultivated exclusively by the Luxardo family in the orchards of the Euganean Hills in the Veneto region of Italy.

The result is a bright, rich, and sour taste that retains the strong juniper and spice of the original distillate.

Each bottle is outfitted with an artisanal label designed to reflect 19th century Italy, further celebrating the family’s history.

Founder Facts

Luxardo is a family-owned company founded in Zara, a port city on the Dalmatian coast of what is now Croatia. Girolamo Luxardo founded the Luxardo Distillery in 1821 to produce his wife’s original Maraschino liqueur.

Only one member of the fourth generation, Giorgio Luxardo, survived the World War II invasion and fled to Italy. Escaping with only a cherry sapling, Giorgio crossed the Adriatic Sea to the Veneto region of northeast Italy and reconnected with a colleague who had saved the Luxardo recipe book.

Luxardo continues to produce Maraschino to Maria Canevari’s original recipe, as it was written down in 1821. Today, Luxardo is operated by Franco Luxardo of the family’s fifth generation, along with members of the sixth.
