Solerno, the blood orange liqueur from Sicily, is made using only the best Sanguinello oranges – known for their intense flavour and bittersweet taste – handpicked at the height of their season.
Solerno is a special blend of small batch distillates, each crafted in old-fashioned stills with an infusion of macerated whole blood orange fruit and an aromatic lemon distillate. This ensures a wonderful balance and displays the deep complexity and juiciness of the blood orange fruit.
The liquid is bottled in Sicily in glass inspired by the famous Venetian Murano style, through which the bottle radiates the decadent refreshment of the blood orange fruit from the inside out.
