Limoncello of Capri 'Limoncè'

Regular price $28.00

The Limoncello di Capri Limoncè is one of the most representative liqueurs of the Mediterranean tradition.
As a matter of fact, it is obtained from the lemon peels, carefully selected, with no chemical treatments. These lemons come from Capri and the Isle of Capri, where the sun and the sea exalt the quality of taste and smell of this fruit.
In order to enjoy its unique taste, it must be drunk with ice. It is excellent as refreshing drink mixed with tonic water.  

The history of Limoncello di Capri

Limoncello di Capri, the uniquely Italian liqueur, is the delicious result of an abundance of lemons and a dose of patience (lemon rinds, full of essential oils, are infused with sugar and alcohol, and macerate for several months). Like so many Italian artisan inventions, its origins are folkloric and a matter of debate. Limoncello has long been associated with the Capri coast but was first trademarked only in 1988. Its roots go back many centuries earlier: some historians say fishermen drank it to steel themselves against medieval invasions; others claim that monks created it in their monasteries or that it was invented by wealthy Capri-area families in the early 1900s.
