Bols Maraschino is a fairly new product which fits the call for those Maraschino Liqueur classic recipes that have come along in history. Today, our only alternative is Luxardo which brings a much more green/vegital flavor where Bols uses a more subtle flavor that has some sense of sweetness on the tongue and does remind you more of a cherry (although it’s not a cherry liqueur).
Lucas Bols is definitely trying to position themselves deeper into the serious craft cocktail by creating such a product, even if it isn’t called upon often in today’s cocktails, perhaps Bols will be able to change that and bring back the classic requirements for a maraschino liqueur.
