A Luxardo cherry is candied with its own Marasca syrup. These delectable plump, pitted cherries provide a fresh, fruity kick to any cocktail.


    Luxardo cherries make a big difference in every cocktail they touch. Each jar contains ridiculously delicious, all-natural whole pitted cherries, candied with Marasca syrup.

    Luxardo is a premier name in mixology, known for their excellence in creating infused liqueurs. They’ve perfected the maraschino cherry, transforming it from a garnish to an essential ingredient. It’s amazing how one little piece of fruit can kick ordinary drinks into overdrive.

    This can contains approximately 50-55 cherries. These world-famous gourmet cocktail cherries are also available in 6.6-lb (approximately 480 cherries) or 12-lb cans (approximately 890 cherries).

    Consistently hailed as the best cocktail cherries on the market, you haven't enjoyed a proper Manhattan until you've had one with this classic cocktail garnish.

    Best Maraschino Cherries ever
    Once you try these, you will never eat any other jarred cherry. I use them for Old Fashions, and several other Bourbon drinks. But I also use them as the center for my butter button cookies and even mix a few into my cherry pies. They are incomparable!

    These are the only cherries we use for the home bar cocktails. Discovered that KegWorks carried them a few years ago and have been our cherry of choice. In addition to appearance, we feel they give a "little something" to the quality of our Manhattans.

    I prefer luxardo cherries to marachino cherries when it comes to enjoying a bourbon manhattan. There taste is superior when used in any cocktail but especially in a bourbon <br />cocktail.

    Douglas H on Nov 24, 2018 at Kegworks
    You can't make a proper whiskey sour without these cherries. The syrup they come in makes great designs in the froth at the top of the drink.

    I gave these as a birthday gift to a Martini lover friend in October. The next month, another birthday gift to a mutual buddy in the 1st Martini Lover's presence - his eyes LIT UP, and proceeded to ring the praises of the Luxardo Maraschino Cherries I gave him in the month prior. I was definitely the celebrity for this pick!!

    Do they have to be refrigerated?
    A shopper on Sep 30, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: If you refrigerate them after you open them, the syrup tends to congeal after a week or so. I keep mine out on the counter, with the jar sealed, and they seem to hold up without any problem for the several months that it takes me to use a jar.
    Can these be stored on the bar?
    Angela H on Nov 1, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I believe so. I keep my open jar in the fridge. The syrup solidifies after a time, so don't wait too long to enjoy these delicious cherries.
    Approx how many cherries are there in this 400g jar ? thankyou
    john h on Oct 23, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! There are approximately 65 cherries per jar.
