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. Folklore holds that limoncello had medicinal virtues and was capable of curing everything from bad breath to a bad love life. Meletti selects only the finest Sorrento lemons from groves located along the coast. This type of lemon is noted for its low acidity and it’s thick skin, rich in oils that gives this liqueur its rich body and intriguing aroma. The lemons are hand-harvested in mid-October and quickly brought to Melettis distillery. The production process is long and tedious with expert supervision, at each level, by the Meletti family. 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. Meletti Limoncello is a delicious citrus liqueur with a full rich mouthfeel and the inviting aroma of fresh lemons. The lemon flavors are pronounced but not harsh, and the taste is balanced by a delightful sweet finish.
