christmas limoncello and treats
This gift is packaged in our signature box with rose gold foiling and contains:
1 x Applewood Limoncello (500ml) (Gumeracha, SA)
Made from a safely guarded recipe - two different types of lemons from South Australia's oldest citrus plantation in Lennane Orchards, Montacute Valley, Adelaide Hills. This citrus orchard is believed to be planted 150 years ago.
Why is this Limoncello important? The lemons are what one might call "UGLY". Yes, they are different sizes and kind of weird looking. Unfortunately, that meant that supermarkets did not want to buy them. So, after trying to sell these ugly little lemons for years, the growers decided to remove the 150 year old trees.
To STOP THIS and help preserve this historic orchard, Applewood Distillery put up their hands and promised to buy the whole crop to make a delicious Limoncello.
It is a labour of love. Literally! They spend 12 hours hand peeling lemons from the orchard to produce this delicious drop. In fact, they have a family ritual of taking turns to peel a couple of buckets a day. Everyone chips in!
We think all lemons are beautiful and hope you do too. Saluti!
Serving suggestion: Store in your freezer. Drink after a bowl of pasta. Mix with soda, ice and fresh lemon. Layer with thickened cream.
