After a dinner based on fish, the tradition of the
Campania region, which has now spread also to the
other Italian regions, demands Limoncello after
neapolitan coffee, instead of the usual liqueur.
the traditional liqueur distilled from lemon peel,
comes from the Amalfi Coast. Still today families
in the Campania region, in addition to the traditional
home-made tomato sauce based on "granny's recipe",
also make their own "limoncello".
Typical product of this Region, the Limoncello is
a natural liqueur with excellent properties, with
an unique taste, scented, produced according to
the most ancient recipe. It is an easy and simple
composition, without the addition of colouring agents,
stabilizing agents, additives or preserving agents,
all this emphasizes the originality and the purity
of the product, just like a long time ago.
The peculiar micro climate of the places of the
Campania coast helps the growth of a lemon unique
in its sort, of large pieces, with thick and very
much scented peel and with superior properties.
For ages, from this kind of lemon, the famous liqueur
called 'limoncello' is extracted.
It is obtained by soaking the peels of lemons cultivated
and picked only to produce it.
Limoncello must be served at room
temperature or cold, like a digestive or an aperitif.
An iced liqueur glass is an unbeatable digestive.
It becomes a pleasent thirst-quenching drink when
tonic water is added. It is excellent in champagne
or in prosecco to prepare long-drinks. it is very
pleasent on ice cream, on fruit-salad an on strawberries.
We advice to put the bottle in the freezer, so to
enjoy the Limoncello at the best.
