Solerno, the blood orange liqueur made exclusively on the island of Sicily, is celebrating the Australian season of one of its native fruits – the blood orange, only available between August and October. 

The brand has teamed up with Red Belly Citrus, one of the largest blood orange growers in the country, to offer blood orange deliveries to key bars and restaurants for seasonal cocktails and gourmet dishes. [continues below]

"Dark crimson in colour and extremely juicy – like Solerno – blood oranges are extremely versatile and can enhance anything from cocktails, salads or desserts," distributor William Grant & Sons said. 

"Solerno is the only liqueur to offer the exotic flavours found in blood oranges, yet it's infused with red berries, orange blossom and a hint of lemon that can be enjoyed all year round." 

Produced by master distiller Lesley Gracie, also the creator of Hendrick’s Gin, Solerno is versatile as a base spirit (at 40 per cent ABV) as well as a modifying sweetener.
