Overview

In the heart of the ancient Neapolis near the "Decumano Maggiore" recognized asUNESCO World Heritage, Limone offers with its production the flavours and thefragrances of the Napolitantradition. Limone is much more than a simple factory of liquors: it wants to follow the traditions handed downfrom generation to generation in order to discover the pleasure of sharing together the traditional and genuine flavours and aromas. A firm able to bring the traditions in the place where they were born: this was the project when Limone started its activities. The idea is still the same. Limone is the place where one can still find genuine and handmade food production as well as the flavours of homemade liquors. Limoncello, creams, rucolino (liquor with arugula), finocchietto (liquor with selvatic fennel), and baba (Napolitan cake), are just some products which gave notoriety to our brand. The secret of our success is based on the handmade production as well as on the traditional recipes. Limone achieved remarkable results through a particular attention on the quality of its production, which is internationally recognized. This is the reason why Limone is recommendedon the most famous Naples guidebooks (Routard, Lonely Planet, Hachette, Dumont) whichsuggest to visit our small factory. Limonebegan with the production of few liquors, then inspired by the Napolitan handmade tradition itintroduced other products. The most famous liquor is the limoncello, which is prepared following an ancient family recipe. Our limoncello is produced using a particular green lemon called "verdello" with excellent digestive proprieties and produced without chemicals. Each lemon is peeled by hand as it was an homemade process. All the lemons come from "CampiFlegrei"and the harvest is without chemicals or phytopharmaceutical products. Our peculiarity is that Limone does not produce just liquors, while a variety of products based on lemon (pasta with lemon, lemon grappa, lemon olive oil, to name but a few). During the visit of our factory we explain to our clients the whole productive process and they often feel at home. Limone is also a sort of archeological museum: inside our factory there are a well of IV century B.C. Which was part of the Greek aqueduct as well as a wall in "opus reticulatum" of Dioscuri's Temple. The liquors testing and the archeological visit is an incredible surprise for our clients. Finally, the key of success was our clients affection. They increasedyear by year recognizing the efforts of our small enterprise. Many clients come back bringing their friends, and they act as small Limone promoters. Many of them became very expert guide regarding liquors production. We were born in 1996 as a small factory, but nowadays we are an unmissablestop-over during the city historical center tour. The creativity of the young managers tends to continuously find new synthesis between tradition and innovation. Our motto always was: "Conservareilsapore e conservareiilsapere" (Preserve a flavor means preserving knowledge).

If you’re looking for an authentic souvenir, which even tastes good: This is the right place. The Limoncello is amazing, you can also get Limoncello-Chocolate and other treats and different Limoncello flavors. The service is nice and competent, as well. Definitely a must go.

Limoncello was nice, but we were asked if we've been there already, and we saw nothing more than the bottles, so not really a tourist attraction?
