One of the world's favourite amarettos has added to its family with the new Disaronno Velvet. Made in Saronno, Italy, the original Disaronno formula hasn't changed since 1525, but the new Disaronno Velvet has a lower ABV than the classic version at 17 per cent, making it the perfect treat when served over ice. 

Smooth as velvet, hence the name, this new cream liqueur has a gorgeous new look compared to its square-capped sibling. This new bottle has a fresh, contemporary look with an elegant white finish - making it the perfect addition to your drinks cabinet.

Want to try the smooth new Disaronno Velvet for yourself? Try out the martini recipe below.

Of course, the classic amber Disaronno is still available alongside the newest addition to the range. Made with an infusion of apricot kernel oil, burnt sugar, and the pure essence of 17 selected herbs and spices, the original Disaronno is known for its oblong glass decanter, which was designed by a craftsman in Murano, Italy. 

Usually served on the rocks, the Disaronno sour is a favourite of ours and is super easy to whip up. Try the recipe below.
