Limoncello di Sorrento
Volume: 70cl * 28%
This wonderfully tangy (but not overly sweet) Limoncello has been produced with the prized Sorrento lemons; oval, medium in size, with a particularly succulent pulp and a peel with a very special fragrance, they have been awarded PGI status - an important guarantee of their quality. They grow along the Sorrentine peninsula in Southern Italy from Vico Equense to Massa Lubrense in rich volcanic soil and no chemicals are used on the fruits which are hand-picked.
Limoncello is one of Italy's most famous 'digesivi' or after-dinner drinks. Sweet, crisp and refreshing, it is normally served chilled (but not over ice) in a shot glass or a small ceramic cup to bring out its flavours. Keep it in the freezer - it won't freeze but tastes amazing icy cold!
Try it too in an aperitif served with Prosecco or in a cocktail. Limoncello can also be served on ice cream or used in desserts such as lemon Tiramisu'.

In the Sorrento Peninsula, the production of lemon liqueur dates back to ancient times and is still carried out with artisan and traditional methods handed down to the present day. Established in 1986, Piemme insists on this artisanal approach to its limoncello production and is active in the consortium of Sorrento lemons.
