Maraschino Luxardo is a classic Italian liqueur and is presented in its traditional way, straw covered bottle and all. The clear hues hide a flavour which is simply bursting with marasca cherries and a typically pungent aroma in which the cherries seem to invite you to take that first sip. Smooth on the palate initially, leading into a sharpness which is short lived but satisfying. It’s the aroma of this one which will have you back for another sip, lingering long after tasting.
Prucia Plum Liqueur is a French creation which uses locally produced Ume plums, a native of Japan. The plums are macerated in grape spirit and then aged in French oak barrels, delivering a flavour which is rich in juicy plum flavours but also almonds and sweet marzipan. A surprisingly sweet yet definitely moreish liqueur which has some similarities to Cointreau and Amaretto but others which make it unique and distinctive in its own right. Enjoy alongside a Chinese or Japanese meal or alongside any sweet dessert. Try it cut with some Sake ,well chilled.
