- The firm was founded in Zara in 1821, a port city on the Dalmatian coast (now part of the republic of Croatia) which had been, for more than six centuries, an integral part of the 'Serenissima' republic of Venice. At the fall of the Venetian republic in 1797, Zara was designated the capital of the Kingdom of Dalmatia, under Austrian sovereignity. A citizen from Genova, Girolamo Luxardo, was sent to Zara as consular representative of the Kingdom of Sardinia; he moved there with his family in 1817. His wife Maria Canevari dedicated herself - as was customary at the time - to making liqueurs at home. She was especially interested in perfecting a 'rosolio maraschino', a liqueur produced in Dalmatia since medieval times and often made in convents. The liqueur she produced was of such high quality that it claimed the attention not only of family and friends but of serious connoisseurs. Her husband Girolamo founded a distillery in 1821 to produce Maraschino. After 8 years of research and perfecting the product he obtained an exclusive 'privilege' from the Emperor of Austria: this was a valuable and cherished acknowledgment of the superior quality of the Luxardo liqueur.
Passione Nera is Luxardo's Black Sambuca flavoured with cardamom, coriander and liquorice. It has an inky black appearance and a very smooth palate with plenty of spicy flavour.
