Luxardo Maraschino Cherries are considered special because of the unique process used to produce them. Unlike most maraschino cherries, which are made from sweet cherries that are soaked in a syrup made from corn syrup and artificial flavorings, Luxardo Maraschino Cherries are made from a specific variety of sour cherries called Marasca cherries. The cherries are grown in the region of Veneto, Italy, around the town of Torreglia, where the Luxardo family has been producing them since 1821.
The cherries are first steeped in a mixture of water, sugar, and alcohol (made from the same marasca cherries) for several months. This process removes the cherry's original color and flavor and infuses it with the syrup's flavor and aroma. Then they are hand-packed in jars and filled with a syrup made from cherry juice, sugar and alcohol.
Luxardo Maraschino Cherries are known for their rich, complex flavor and deep red color. They are also a key ingredient in many classic cocktails, like the Manhattan, Old Fashioned Cocktail, and garnish for many desserts like sundae or Black Forest cake. They are considered a premium product and are generally more expensive than other maraschino cherries.
