GIFT: Moschino Disaronno

What happens when two of Italy’s prominent brands get together? One gives the other a fashion makeover.

Disaronno, Italy’s best selling liqueur and international fashion house Moschino have launched a special edition holiday bottle concept, “Moschino Loves Disaronno.”

Moschino has adorned the classic Disaronno bottle with a red and black heart pattern (actually more appropriate for Valentine’s Day gifts, so buy them now while you can). A great gift for amaretto fans, it’s also a collectible for the fashionistas with whom you exchange gifts.

The limited edition bottle is available now for $24.99 at stores nationwide, or through 1-877-spirits.com.

Profits from the Disaronno and Moschino project will support the charity Fashion 4 Development, an African initiative sponsored by the United Nations, with the aim of developing creative strategies for sustained economic growth and development in countries worldwide.

ABOUT DISARONNO LIQUEUR

The legend of Disaronno dates back to 1525, when Renaissance artist and Leonardo da Vinci pupil Bernardino Luini was commissioned to paint a fresco in the town of Saronno. To portray the Madonna of Miracles, he chose as his muse a beautiful local innkeeper. She repaid the honor by giving the artist a flask of the fragrant and delicate amber liquor known as amaretto di Saronno.

There are numerous brands of amaretto. But with its distinctive square stopper, Disaronno is the world’s best-selling Italian liqueur.

Amaretto is enjoyed neat (a popular pairing with after-dinner coffee), on the rocks, or in cocktails. To celebrate this festive collaboration, Disaronno has created a special cocktail:
