Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur was created by Master Distiller Leslie Gracie, best known for creating Hendrick’s Gin.

Tasting Notes: The nose bursts with whole-fruit blood orange, orange blossom and a hint of bright and zesty lemon. The palate yields a velvety sweetness, balancing tartness, and a lasting, dry finish.
