• Aroma: an intense nose of citrus fruits, with bitter notes of curaçao, tempered by the perfume of zagara.
• Taste: smooth enveloping flavour of citrus fruits, a very well rounded and mature taste. A surprising aromatic persistence, typical of distillates matured in wood.On

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.
