Ancho’s liqueuring and substitute beverage brand, Maraschinos, has a partnership with one of Italy’s biggest brewers, Ancho Reays, to make a special beer.
Ancho announced the collaboration at the 2018 Maraschi Festival in Italy, and the beer is called Maraschetto Liqueur Substitute.
The beer is ancho, a blend of fresh herbs and spices that is traditionally used to sweeten food.
It’s made with local herbs such as fennel, thyme, oregano, rosemary, and mint.
It has been made since the mid-18th century, and its popularity is increasing in Italy.
The company’s chief executive, Alessandro Cucinelli, said the partnership was “part of the new age” of wine-making and said Maraschenos is a “fantastic product that is more suited to Italy’s tastes”.
“We are a bit behind the curve on the market but we are very excited to see what the beer will taste like,” Cucchini said.
Maraschio Liqueurs Substitute will be released in November 2018 and will be sold in Italy and the United States.
Anchore’s Ancho Liqueors is also making a limited run of Marascho beer and it will be available in the United Kingdom, Germany, and France from 20 November.
The Ancho brand has been around for decades, and it is a part of the Maraschnos family for more than 200 years.
“The Marascha family is known worldwide for its extraordinary craftsmanship, quality and innovation, which has led to the Maraschenos brand being one of the world’s most recognized craft brewers,” Anchores co-founder and CEO Mario Mazzacone said.
