Synopsis: Limoncello di Capri

Not every liqueur has a legend behind it. But when one comes from the Land of the Sirens (or maybe, some say, Milan), the edges between fact and fancy can’t help but blur. Massimo Canale, the Milanese businessman who made the filing, associated his artisanal lemon liqueur to the recipe handed down from the luscious liqueur’s original creator. Here’s the story: Limoncello di Capri’s story began at the start of the 20th century, Vincenza Canale, a hotelier on the island of Capri, was the first to offer limoncello, derived from the Caprian word limonillo, to her guests. Her descendants formed Limoncello di Capri S.r.L. in 1988 continuing the old family tradition and becoming the first company to patent and use the Limoncello name now used by many other brands. In 1999, the Molinari family, famous for creating the Sambuca category, became a shareholder in “Limoncello di Capri, SrL.”.
