The Luxardo Original Maraschino Cherries were first produced at the Luxardo plant in Zara around 1905, likely to be the first of their kind in the world. They are sour Marasca cherries candied with syrup. The Luxardo family exclusively cultivates over 30,000 Marasca Cherry trees on the Euganean Hills in the Veneto region of Italy. These cherries are also used by the family for distilling its renowned Maraschino Liqueur and for infusing the Sangue Morlacco Cherry Liqueur.
