Disaronno Originale (28% abv) is an amaretto-flavored liqueur with a characteristic almond taste made in Italy. Its maker, Disaronno, maintains its originale "secret formula" is unchanged since 1525, and claims the Amaretto Legend "Luini tale" as its own particular history.
The product was called "Amaretto di Saronno" (Amaretto from Saronno) before adopting for marketing and legal reasons the name "Disaronno Originale." It is produced in Saronno and sold worldwide.
According to the company the amber colored drink is an infusion of apricot kernel oil with "absolute alcohol, burnt sugar, and the pure essence of seventeen selected herbs and fruits". The liqueur is sold in an oblong glass decanter designed by a craftsman from Murano and does not contain any almonds or other nuts.
Disaronno can be served straight up as a cordial, on the rocks, or as part of a cocktail mixed with other alcoholic beverages, Coke, ginger Ale, or fruit juice. It may also be added to hot chocolate, and is an ingredient in an Italian variant of an Irish coffee.
