Limoncello produced in Amalfi Coast

According to local tradition, a good lunch or dinner must finish with a glass of delicious limoncello. The limoncello is the traditional liqueur distilled from the peel of the Amalfi lemons (PGI Amalfi Coast lemons, also called sfusato amalfitano) produced in all the towns of the Amalfi Coast. It's a natural liqueur, with special properties, a unique taste, perfumed, obtained by an ancient recipe. Simple to prepare, without added coloring, stabilizing or conserving agents: the simple way and cure to produce it emphasize the originality and the purity, just like much time ago.

The limoncello must be served cold in icy glasses.

The recipe

Ingredients: 15 PGI Amalfi Coast lemons with a thick peel, 2 x 750ml pure alcohol, 4 sugar cups, 5 water cups.

Fill up one water jug of alcohol (750ml) and rinds. Limoncello must macerate at room temp. for 80 days in the covered jug without light. It is not necessary to churn.
