The fresh lemons of the Amalfi Coast create the most delicious summer spirit - quite literally! Read this zesty blog and get intoxicated by the citrus tang of sweet limoncello.
If it isn’t already, the Amalfi Coast needs to be at the top of your bucket list this summer! Birthplace of our very own Brand Ambassador, Gennaro Contaldo, the Amalfi Coast boasts lemons at every turn. Their colourful pop of yellow is encountered hanging unpicked by the side of cobbled lanes and in sprawling terrace gardens, just as easily as they’re found served as granita in a small street cart on the promenade. You’ll even find them in the mosaics of ancient Roman villas. Lemons are everywhere.
“Limoncello producers really put their heart and soul into their products using only the most quality ingredients,” explains Raggy Singh, Senior Personal Travel Planner. “Aside from bottling, the process is still completed by hand, making it a real labour of love.”
“One of their secrets to making great limoncello is to not use the largest lemons - it is in fact often the smaller lemons that provide a better flavour.”
