Salvatore Calabrese is one of London’s best-known bartenders but he grew up on Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast, famous for its lemons and limoncello liqueur. This liqueur, made with “mid-season Amalfi lemons” is inspired by his love of cognac and the homemade lemon liqueurs he grew up with. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 25/10/2012

Appearance

Cloudy, pale dirty yellow. Don't be put off by the scum-line that can form inside the bottle's neck, this is a sign of the flavoursome oils which have not been filtered out.

Aroma

Pungent zesty lemon, lemon meringue pie filling and green wood.

Taste

Full-flavoured with powerful lemon zest, biting citric acidity and faint cognac notes – though it is not obvious that this liqueur is based on cognac. Despite the zesty acidity there is a creamy softness to the mouth feel.

Aftertaste

Long tangy lemon zesty finish.

Overall

Tart and complex with balancing richness rather than sugary sweetness. Not to be confused with sweeter limoncellos, but Liqueur di Limone is great served ice-cold after a meal.
