Meletti Liqueur Limoncello 750ml    
Sku: 1050051*

Lemon trees have been cultivated on the Amalfi coast since 200 AD. The noble lemon has made its way through India, Asia, Greece and Italy. According to Greek Mythology It is the symbol of fruitfulness and love. And according to Italian Tradition, Limoncello liqueur is the elixir of life capable of curing everything from bad breath to a bad love life. The Meletti family selects the finest Sorrento lemons from groves located along the coast. This type of lemon is noted for its low acidity and thick skin. The rich oils give this liqueur its rich body and intriguing aroma. The lemons are hand-harvested in mid-October and quickly brought to the Meletti distillery. The production process is long and tedious with family supervision, at every level. The skins are macerated in pure alcohol for three months, and the liquid is blended with a sweet emulsion that is created from an old family recipe. The final blend is aged an additional three months before being bottled and released. Meletti Limoncello is pure and natural with no coloring or stabilizing additives.
