Villa Massa Limoncello & Glass Gift Pack 500ml (Italy)
Villa Massa’s Limoncello has a unique colour - a vibrant green with hints of yellow and white - the result of a long infusion process that enables the lemon’s bright yellow pigment to naturally infuse into the alcohol. When you taste Villa Massa, you immediately discover its unique aroma: the lemon tastes so intense and alive that it transports you immediately to a lemon grove with views out over the Gulf of Naples. Its natural flavour delicately cleanses the palate, creating the perfect balance between the acidic lemony notes, the sweet notes and the alcoholic base. The traditional way to enjoy limoncello is chilled to -7° in a chilled shot glass, but , you can also get a sense of the superior quality of Villa Massa by tasting it at room temperature, or by using it in Mediterranean-style cocktails.
When life gives you lemons…make Limoncello!
Villa Massa Limoncello 500ml is produced in accordance with the family’s ancient secret recipe using modern and efficient production techniques that enable them to maintain the consistently high quality of this prized liqueur. The lemons are harvested rigorously by hand, before being brought into the factory to be washed, dried and immediately sent for mechanical peeling. This process produces super thin layers of peel that is rich in essential oils.
The peels of Sorrento Oval lemons are then left to infuse in pure molasses alcohol inside stainless steel drums for at least 3 days; this is how the aromatic transfer takes place, a product of when all of the lemon’s essential oils are transferred to the alcohol. Before it is packaged, the infusion is filtered several times and stored in a temperature-controlled room, before being blended with a filtered syrup of water and sugar.
