Limoncello is the second most popular liqueur in Italy, and it has recently become popular in other parts of the world. Traditional Limoncello liqueur is made from the zest of lemons, or peels without the pith, then steeped in rectified spirit until the oil is released. The resulting yellow liquid is then mixed with simple syrup. Varying the sugar to water ratio and the temperature will affect the clarity, viscosity, and flavour of the liqueur.
Russo Liquore Di Limoncello
Russo is a family-operated distillery that has cultivated artisanal production processes for over three generations. Their Limoncello, the pride of the establishment, is made exclusively from organic Verdelli lemons from the Sorrento and Almafi coasts in Campania, Italy, known for their intense aromatics. They are picked and peeled by hand to preserve the fragrance and essential oils. The resulting liqueur is bursting with fresh lemon flavour, thoroughly capturing both the sweet and sour aspects of the fruit.
How to consume Limoncello? Drink it after dinner, straight from the fridge! Once open, keep the product refrigerated and shake before serving. How long will it keep in the fridge? As long as it take you to drink it. Limoncello also makes great, zesty, and refreshing cocktails, try an Almond Devil martini, and a fantastic summery Limon Bliss.
