From sunny Sicily, the land of blood oranges, Solerno is versatile as a neat spirit or fuity addition, it shines equally in modern interpretations of classic cocktails, original creations, desserts and Italian inspired aperitivi. The nose bursts with the generous and complex perfumes of blood orange, red berries, blossoms and bright notes of lemon. The palate yields a velvety sweetness, balancing the piquancy of zest with the dulcett qualities of juicy orange flesh, resolving on a long, dry finish.
Each exotic blood orange is hand plucked at the height of its short growing season from sun drenched groves on the slopes of Mount Etna. At the Agrumeria Corleone, where five generations of gowers have worked to extract the precious essential oils, the finest parcels of blood orange are immediately processed within twenty four hours to maintain the fresh, ethereal nature of the elixir. The freshest of extracted blood orange oils are married with Italian lemons and the finest, lightly sweetened spirits. A fine citrus Liquore in complete harmony and perfect balance, packaged in a beautiful, Murano inspired glass bottle, flushed in deep red hues like the skin of blood oranges.
