Strega Limoncello Di Sorrento
|Availability:||In stock (4)|
The Strega distillery was founded in the Italian city of Benevento in 1860, when Giuseppe Alberti and his pharmaceutically savvy father reworked an age-old herbal liqueur recipe. The ancient recipe was said to be a mythical love potion, hence the name ‘Strega’, or 'witch'. It's made using around 70 different herbs and spices, and is matured in ash barrels to ensure sufficient mingling of flavours.
Strega limoncello is full of waxy lemon peel. The palate is built of lemon juice, with the waxy peel smoothing out the mouthfeel. Fresh orange lingers in the back, with hints of eucalyptus and pepper on the finish.
