The original recipe

Limoncello di Capri - Villetta_Vincenza Canale Mariantoniaro Pension

Limoncello Di Capri was born on the island of Capri, a place of unique natural beauty that discovered a vocation for the art of hospitality at the beginning of the 19th century. In the early 20th century Vincenza Canale, the trailblazing host, and landlady of the famous Mariantonia hotel started offering homemade lemon liqueur to her guests. Celebrities and regular visitors alike used to gather at sunset to toast with her special limonillo, the ancient Caprese dialect word for “limoncello”, a name that was first patented by Limoncello Di Capri. The original recipe created by Vincenza Canale is still used to this day. Limoncello Di Capri is made exclusively with P.G.I. Sorrento Lemons following an artisanal method respectful of the traditions and the flavours of the island of Capri.

Grown in our “giardini” following traditional practices until perfectly ripe, Sorrento lemon is the star ingredient that makes our Limoncello Di Capri so special.
