“Luxardo Bitter Bianco shares the same infusions of bitter herbs, aromatic plants and citrus fruits with Luxardo Bitter. Before the blending process however, most of these infusions are distilled, process which turns the color into transparent, and changes slightly the flavor profile. An infusion of Roman Absinth (Wormwood) is added at the end to enhance the bitter taste, giving the ivory color to the product. Luxardo Bitter Bianco is brilliantly suited to twist classic cocktails such as Negroni which becomes a Negroni Bianco, a Paloma into a Paloma Bianco etc. but it can also be enjoyed neat or over ice as a classic aperitivo.”-Distiller Notes
“Established in 1821 by Girolamo Luxardo and still entirely controlled by the same founding family, Luxardo exports its specialties in over 86 different countries around the world.”-Distillery Notes

Dalmatia is a stretch of land and islands 600km long, on the eastern shores of the Adriatic sea. Zara was the Venetian capital of Dalmatia for 400 years, and when the Republic fell, first Napoleon's France and later Austria ruled the region. GIROLAMO LUXARDO, sent there as consular representative of the Kingdom of Sardinia, moved to Zara with his family in 1817. His wife Maria Canevari became especially interested in perfecting "ROSOLIO MARASCHINO", a liqueur produced in Dalmatia since medieval times and often made in convents. Girolamo founded his distillery in 1821 to make the liqueur and, after 8 years of research in perfecting it, he obtained an exclusive "Privilege" from the Emperor of Austria, a valuable and cherished acknowledgment of the superior quality of the Luxardo product. Today the firm proudly continues bearing the denomination of "PRIVILEGIATA FABBRICA MARASCHINO EXCELSIOR".
