Italy's most famous liqueur

the history of limoncello

We may never know it's exact origins. It's rumoured in at the beginning of the 20th century on Capri, a local lady Maria Antonia Farace tended a garden of lemons and oranges. After WWII her grandson opened a restaurant nearby, whose speciality was lemon liqueur. His son Massimo Canale, started an artisanal production of limoncello, and registered its mark in 1988.

Others claim that limoncello goes back in time even further. One story tells of local fishermen and farmers who, as early as the Middle Ages, used to drink a shot of limoncello in the early morning to warm up. Others say that the recipe originated inside a monastic convent to delight the monks in between a prayer and the next.

how is it made?

The skin of the lemon is the most important part to make a batch of delicious Limoncello. This tasty liqueur is made by steeping lemon zest (peels) in highly concentrated ethanol or vodka until oil is released, then mixing the resulting yellow liquid with simple syrup. Our Limoncello is lower in sugar than the regular kind - but still packed with flavour.
