Disaronno // Lombardia, Italy
Disaronno is an amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur) with a recipe, the brand claims, that dates back to 1525. It was first commercially produced and marketed by the Reina family in the early 20th century in Saronna, just outside of Milano. Originally called Amaretto di Saronno, the iconic square bottle first arrived in 1942. In 2001, the brand dropped Amaretto from its name and is now simply called Disaronno.
Nut LiqueursNut liqueur examples include almond (amaretto), pistachio, peanuts, hazelnut (noisette), walnuts (nocino) and so on. Amaretto however is often made from apricot pits.
"The sweet almond aroma on the nose is bright and lively and practically jumps out of the glass. The almond flavor is sweet, but not super cloying and provides a nutty, toasted backnote on the finish. Pleasant and delivers what is promised. Classic cocktails to try are the Amaretto Sour and the Godfather. But if you've got a sweet tooth after dinner, serve Disaronno on ice. "
