Description: Triplum is a classic "triple sec" distilled by Luxardo, rigorously faithful to the original production specifications since the first half of the 19th century. The "triple sec" name indicated, in the tradition of that century, a liqueur obtained from the distilled dried peels of three types of citrus fruits: mainly curaçao (a bitter orange of the Dutch Antilles, from the island of that name), together with sweet oranges and mandarins. Luxardo Triplum is obtained from the distillation of the three types of citrus fruit mentioned above with the separation of the 'heads' and 'tails'. Only the 'heart', i.e. the central and best part, is sent to a second distillation. Other ingredients are included in the Luxardo recipe: dried orange flowers (zagara), pennyroyal, vervain, and others. All this gives to the distillate a unique refined aroma, further enhanced by ageing in ash-wood white casks. After ageing for at least six months, the distillate is filtered, diluted and sugared. It is one of the few liqueurs obtained by distillation. Tasting notes: Transparent color. It exudes intense citrus aromas, with the prevalence of bitter curaçao notes tempered by the scent of zagara. In the mouth it slides harmoniously thanks to the enveloping taste of citrus fruits, roundness and maturity. Surprising aromatic persistence, typical of the distillates matured in wood. In contact with the ice, the liqueur releases a scenographic "cloud" of turbidity in the glass, testifying to the aromatic richness of the precious essential oils.
