Femminello and his brothers
It is the first memory that the Sicilians, far from home, recall to the memory, symbol par excellence of this island-continent: Lemon. An incredibly precious fruit that is a physical bond between its people and its land. Nobody who knows deeply this island, however distant, can never forget the unique, sweet and acrid perfume of the lemon grove and its blossoms.Read more
It is a Limoncello of extraordinary purity, the star of Limonio's liqueur production, obtained from the peel of the Sicilian lemon variety "Femminello", grown in the estate of Partinico.
It is a perfect after dinner drink, best enjoyed with Sicily's desserts and is a wonderful addition to the preparation of many recipes such as custards and cream desserts.
Perfect as an after dinner digestif, it is also a surprising delight with a plate of "spaghetti all'amatriciana" or barbecued meat. Try it as a mixer with champagne or sparkling white wine.
The purest flavour of Sicilian Morus Nigra, black mulberries variety, extracted and, literally, bottled. It can be served at room temperature or mixed to create interesting cocktails.
Made by steeping the peel of bitter oranges, herbs and roots in alcohol, it is best served cold at a temperature between -5 and -8 degrees. Excellent as a pre or after dinner drink.
