In a nutshell:
A classic, fresh, zesty and refreshing Limoncello from Bepi Tosolini.
Limoncello is reckoned to have first put in an appearance around the early twentieth century originally in the Sorrento and Amalfi area of southern Italy. Over the years its popularity has stretched far and wide and now versions are made the world over. Tosolini's excellent example is made using only natural ingredients and without any artificial colourings, or flavourings. They take the peel of yellow and green lemons harvested from the Amalfi coast and steep them in neutral grape spirit releasing the lemon oils into solution. It's then mixed with pure sugar syrup to create the finished product. Slightly hazy in colour it's got a big streak of zesty lemon throughout along with a fresh acidity which strikes just the right balance between syrupy sweetness and a sharp citrus blast. Put it in the freezer before serving to make it extra zingy.
The history of the Bepi Tosolini Distillery began in 1943, when Friulian Bepi Tosolini, born in 1918, a passionate connoisseur of his land and his customs, a strong supporter of his region and its products, decided to create a different grappa. Transforming a simple, humble and very often rustic and rough distillate in a product intended for a refined and demanding public. In the 1940s, believing that grappa, a poor product of the Friulian peasant tradition, could achieve popularity on a wider stage. Bepi Tosolini has invested in this dream, in the 1950s building a new distillery in Udine and joined it the largest grappa cellar in Italy.
