Gourmet maraschino cherries?

My husband is into Rob Roys lately and I would like to find a really good maraschino cherry. Those neon ones are awful. When cherry season comes I'll make my own, but any suggestion for brands in the meantime?

    1. Don't know the brand, but Whole Foods sells them, and they're definitely not neon. They're also unlikely to be cheap, but I can't imagine you'd go thru them quickly enough to notice the cost.

      1. The Luxardo cherries are very good, but the Amazon site Trish linked to of $18 plus $8.20 for shipping is a bit steep. The quality liquor store near me sells them for $20 per jar. Not cheap, but better than $26.20 delivered. they do last quite a while, and are really yummy and worth every penny.
