Disaronno Riserva is a new luxury limited edition liqueur, which combines the signature notes of Disaronno with a blend of Scottish malt whisky. The new liqueur is aged in Marsala barrels from the Cantine Florio in Marsala, Sicily.
Augusto Reina, CEO of Illva Saronno hand selected the perfect blend of whiskys on a trip to Speyside, to complement the flavours of Disaronno. He then transported the whisky to Cantine Florio winery; Sicily’s oldest winery, where the Riserva was then aged in old wooden Marsala casks dating back to 1938.
Augusto Reina comments, “I am honoured to present Disaronno Riserva It’s a product that is deeply rooted in the company’s ethos; 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.”
The result is an initially sweet touch of spice softened by light hints of vanilla-almond, with fruity overtones and a finish that is peppery, recalling dried fruit with a touch of intriguing Madeira. It is ideally served neat, or on the rocks. Only 10,000 bottles will be produced worldwide, and it will have a RRP of £250; definitely one for the connoisseurs.
