If you notice advertisements in magazines, especially in magazines that discuss recipes and food making, you will know that Luxardo spends a lot of money to promote their liquors all over the world.
Recently, 2010, they even received television coverage for their liquors being used at a White House cocktail party, and Luxardo recieved a letter from President Obama thanking them for their fine appertifs, etc.
The Luxuardo production of liquors is made just outside of Padova and you can visit a tasting room where you can taste the many types of liquors they make. When you are there you will see that they make many different kinds and they even have a wine production.
Do not be afraid to ask to try lots of kinds, and you don't have to drink each one, they will just pour the small amount out of the glass.
I also want to suggest that you could make this a special outing as the Luxardo factory is located at the bottom of the hills south of Padova. In these hills are many trattorias and wineries. Besides the drive into the hills is very beautiful and you have views of the villages below. It is really a wonderful part of the Veneto region, set aside for a kind of wilderness by the Veneto law.
I will suggest that you see my pages on some restaurants and one really good winery. Take a look. You will find the people in this area to be friendly and helpful.
The hills are so full of green, even in the winter. The best time is April when the cherry blossoms are out.
Many restaurants sit on the edge of the hills and have a great view.
