Luxardo has been making Limoncello since 1906 but with the new bottle introduced in May 2010 came a new formulation with a more intense lemon flavour. This new Luxardo Limoncello has around 25 percent more fresh lemon juice and essential oils from the peel of Sicilian lemons.
The new Luxardo Limoncello has a more attractive natural cloudy appearance. Unlike some other producers, Luxardo make their Limoncello by a lengthily infusion process.

This new frosted bottle bears the Luxardo name embossed on the side and is greener, being 10% lighter in weight so using less glass. The bottle is finished with the new red Luxardo logo with gold foiling and a screen printed image of a lemon.
