Limoncello di Capri. As far back as the turn of the last century, "nonna" Vincenza Canale (one of the first hoteliers on the island) used to offer a glass of Limoncello to her guests at her famous guest-house, the "Mariantonia".
Since then, devotees to the island have continued to meet at the end of the day to sample this delicious liqueur. Amongst the fans of this very special drink one finds Ignazio Cerio, J. Fersen, Axel Munthe, F. A. Krupp and Amedeo Maiuri, to name just a few.
To this day Limoncello di Capri continues to be made using the same time-honoured recipe. A natural liqueur with excellent digestive properties, Limoncello di Capri is made by macerating lemon peel taken from lemons grown and picked on the island. It is a simple natural product, free of colorants, stabilisers, additives and preservatives, which embodies all the authenticity of the original recipe.
Limoncello di Capri has two shops. The first near the center of Capri, in Via Roma and the other one in Anacapri, in the typical street of Via San Michele.
