Created by a beautiful young woman this ancient amber coloured Italian Liqueur dates back to 1525. It was gifted to the artist &lsquoBernardino Luini a member of the Leonardo da Vinci School. The said beautiful woman was subsequently immortalised by Luini in a renowned fresco in Saronno (although the true source of Luinis inspiration remains a matter of some speculation.) Commercial production of the recipe was begun in the 18th Century by the Reina family in their apothecary shop in Saronno. There are seventeen ingredients in all. Tasting not: The nose displays spirity almond and spice aromas. DiSarrono natural apricot fruit sweetness is subtly countered by the addition of crushed almonds. Beautifully balanced the lush full-bodied palate explodes in flavour on the mid palate finishing with fantastic persistence. Di Sarrono attributes make it a liqueur with an almost universal appeal enjoyable in coffee on the rocks or in a range of cocktails.
