|Lemon Flavoured Liqueur
|Where's it from?
Cassano 1875 Limoncello is a luxurious, refreshing liqueur. Its bright lemon yellow colour is complemented by its extraordinary perfume of fresh lemons. Its taste is a perfect balance of lemon peel bitterness, alcohol, and sweetness. Enjoy it straight from the freezer and as an addition to cocktails, Prosecco, and desserts. A splash of Cassano 1875 Limoncello in a glass of mineral water on a hot summer's day can be restorative and even rather invigorating.
About the Producer
Cassano 1875 produces hand-made liqueurs/digestifs, syrups and jams on the Sorrento peninsula. The quality of their range is exceptional and this is due to best quality base ingredients they use. Their Limoncello, for example, is made using only IGP lemons (similar to a DOC for lemons) called 'ovale di Sorrento'. Although Cassano 1875's flagship liqueur is Limoncello, their range of handmade, high quality digestifs includes coffee, myrtle and a walnut oil liqueur, all of which have the same intensity and purity of flavour as the Limoncello. Sorrento citrus fruit has been grown on the Peninsula since Roman times when the trees and fruit were prized for their perfume and esthetics. There are many ancient Roman frescos, particularly those at Pompei and Ercolano, which depict the beautiful Sorrento orange and lemon groves.
About the Production
Cassano 1875 uses only the finest lemons, ripened under the hot Sorrento sun. They still use the traditional method of Limoncello production by peeling the lemons by hand. This ensures that the tiny oil sacs contained in the zest remain intact, giving an intense flavour and a freshness to the Limoncello. The peel is then macerated in 96% pure alcohol and once the requisite amount of flavour has been extracted, it is removed and a demineralised sugar syrup is added to the alcohol to lower its strength and balance any bitterness imparted to the alcohol by the peel.
