The warm, sophisticated taste of Disaronno has a lineage dating back to one of the most romantic and creative periods in Italian history – the Renaissance. In 1525, the artist Bernardino Luini, a brilliant pupil of Leonardo da Vinci – was commissioned to paint a fresco of the Madonna of the Miracles in Saronno.
To portray the Madonna, he chose a beautiful local innkeeper as his muse.
As a mark of her gratitude, she prepared a special gift for the artist, namely, a flask full of an amber liqueur, fragrant and delicate. That is how the legend of DISARONNO arose: from a simple gesture of kindness and the unique handmade combination of secret ingredients.
In the 1970s, a master glassmaker from Murano, Venice, created a work of art in the Di Saronno Amaretto bottle.The hand-crafted, unique “square bottle” was made from softly sparkling glass, and formed the now familiar design, recognised all over the world.
The bottle has an unequivocal brand image that has only been retouched on occasion, without ever losing its essential characteristics.
The velvety smooth taste and unmistakable aroma gave Disaronno the reputation of the world’s favourite Italian liqueur, which is stated proudly on its label.
