The lemons used to obtain this “sweet nectar” is a particular variety that has been grown for centuries for this purpose, crossing the cedrangolo (a bitter citrus) with ordinary Amalfi lemons, to create a breed that is one of a kind. These rich, ripe, fleshy lemons are filled with essential oils and give the liqueur its characteristic taste. The lemons are grown in a particular microclimate, where the sun and Mediterranean breeze mix, giving them the chemical properties that allow them the geographic indication status (I.G.P.) of the European Union.
