Disaronno Originale (28% abv) is a liqueur that is made in Italy. It is amaretto-flavored, with a characteristic bittersweet almond taste. Disaronno claims its "originale" amaretto's "secret formula" is unchanged from the year 1525,[1] and claims the Luini tale as its own particular history. Its production remains in Saronno, but the product is sold worldwide.

The company describes its liqueur as an infusion of "apricot kernel oil" with "absolute alcohol, burnt sugar, and the pure essence of seventeen selected herbs and fruits"; the product does not contain any almonds or other nuts. The amber liqueur is presented in an oblong glass decanter designed by a craftsman from Murano.

The product was called "Amaretto di Saronno" (Amaretto from Saronno) before adopting, for marketing and legal reasons, the current name "Disaronno Originale."

Disaronno can be served on the rocks, in shots, as part of a cocktail or with a mixer such as Coke or apple, mango or cherry juice.
