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 (Madonna dei Miracoli in Saronno, where the Fresco is still displayed today). To portray the Madonna, he chose as his muse a beautiful local innkeeper. As a mark of her gratitude she prepared for the artist a special gift of 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. Today Disaronno enjoys true style status as the world's favourite Italian liqueur. And, with over 100 perfect mixes to suit your mood!
