Limoncello di Sorrento 70cl

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 hand-made, high quality digestifs includes coffee, mirtle 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 Pensinsula 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.
