Lazzaroni Triplo Triple Sec Orange Liqueur At the beginning of the 18th century, the Lazzaroni family,
led by Carlo Lazzaroni, moved from Valtellina to Saronno, where they began the
artisanal production of Amaretto di Saronno. Carlo had two sons; Davide stayed
in Saronno, where he continued to produce amaretti, but Paolo moved to Monza in
the mid-19th century, where he took up the production of mostarda and liqueurs.
Through the following decades the company enjoyed great success, making 350
different types of biscuits and exporting its products worldwide. Campbell’s
bought the company in 1984, then sold it in 1991 to Citterio, the Italian
producer of ham and salami. Going back to those two brothers, however, you can
see that Lazzaroni doesn’t mean just cookies but also means fine liqueurs,
which they’ve been creating since 1851. Distilled from bitter oranges from
Curacao and sweet oranges from Sicily, Triplo, Lazzaroni’s version of Triple
Sec, has a bright citrus flavor and an enticing sweetness.
