How Limoncello Is Made Using Huge Amalfi Coast Lemons | Regional Eats

Limoncello is one of the most popular Italian liqueurs. The yellow drink is made in southern Italy, in sunny Sicily, the Gulf of Naples, and the Amalfi Coast — mostly because these areas offer the perfect soil and weather conditions to grow lemons.

We visited Villa Divina, a villa on the Amalfi Coast in the city of Vietri with 600 lemon trees. Villa Divina supplies lemons to Pallini, a company established in 1875 in a small village near Rome that specializes in Italian liqueurs such as Sambuca and Mistrà. Pallini Limoncello production started in the ’90s, and today Pallini makes almost 1 million liters of the lemon liqueur per year. The type of lemon used for making Pallini Limoncello is the Sfusato Amalfitano, also known as Amalfi lemon.
