A little taste of history
Liquors are produced in a factory in Campania Regions in southern Italy near Salerno
with 80 years of experience in producing Limoncello and Lemon
Liquor products. The factory stands in a lovely hamlet right in the heart of the
Cilento National Park and dates back to the year 1000.
Cilento is an area rich in history and art with ancient towns
such as Paestum and Velia and is surrounded by the deep blue
Mediterranean and resorts such as Palinuro. It is
famous for its highly prized lemons growing in an ideal climate.
Dolce Cilento utilizes this natural wealth by growing and
harvesting choice lemons, following a very old, matchless
tradition. All the plantations are checked by an expert
agronomist to eliminate any residual fungicide.
firm directly cultivates the fruits that are used
in the production of our liquors to ensure that the
process is organic and free of chemical products. The
cultivation process is also controlled by professional
Agronomists to guarantee the total absence of any chemical
In order to
preserve the freshness and the flavours, all the fruits are
processed within a few hours of being harvested. They are hand
peeled using special knives that allow us to use the outer part
of the peel which is the richest in essential oils. This method
of peeling breaks all the pores in the peel from which all the
essential oils are collected into the liquor infusion. The peels
are kept in the infusion with pure alcohol at 96° for one week.
The infusion is then filtrated and mixed with syrup creating the
final product. To maintain all the natural characteristics and
flavours colours or preservatives are not added to the final
product. The factory has a capacity to produce up to 1000
bottles per hour.
