Lazzaroni Amarettov, an Italian liqueur hailing from Saronnol is now available in the UK.
The brand prides itself with being the only one made via an infusion of Amaretti del Chiostro di Saronno biscuits instead of an essence, which really comes out upon tasting.
This smells and tastes properly like the cookies you get in Italian markets – sweet marzipan-like almond and crumbly gingerbread biscuits, on a rich palate that's got cooked stone fruit characters. Bitter notes come out on the finish to balance the sweetness.
It's been made since 1851 in Italy, and is coming over here via Hi-Spirits.
