Disaronno adds Scotch to the mix

Disaronno Riserva

Italian liqueur Disaronno has looked to Scotland – or rather Scotch – for inspiration for the latest addition to its portfolio, Disaronno Riserva.

Disaronno Riserva is a blend of Scotch whisky and Disaronno, aged in Marsala barrels from the Cantine Florio winery in Marsala, Sicily.

The brand says the liqueur gives an initially sweet touch of spice softened by light hints of vanilla-almond, with luscious fruity overtones and a finish that is peppery, recalling dried fruit with a touch of intriguing Madeira. Disaronno suggests it is best served neat, or on the rocks.

The Disaronno Riserva packaging takes inspiration from the usual Disaronno bottle, but with a cleaner and more refined outline, and comes packaged in a black wooden case. Only 10,000 bottles will be produced worldwide, and will be available at an rrp of £250; definitely one for the connoisseurs.

Augusto Reina, CEO of Illva Saronno, commented: “Research and innovation have always been the guiding principles in managing the family business, and it is these exact values that have made this new product truly unique.”
