At the start of the last century, Vincenza Canale, owner of a hotel on the island of Capri, was the first to offer limoncello, derived from the Caprian word "limonillo", to her guests. Her descendants formed the Limoncello di Capri S.r.L. in 1988, the first company to patent and use the word "Limoncello".
Continuing the old family tradition they now produce the "Limoncello di Capri" which is made by the cold infusion of the peel of lemons of Sorrento P.G.I.(protected geographical indication) totally in accordance with the strict technical discipline, without the addition of colour, stabilisers and flavourings.
Its unique and incomparable flavour is the result of a long tradition and a production process carried out with the utmost precision.
"Limoncello di Capri Srl" is an ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2004 certified company and also boasts the IS.ME.CERT Agricultural and Food certification in application of the technical disciplinary of the I.G.P. Lemon from Sorrento. (Reg. CEE n. 2446/2000 published on GUCE L. 281 del 07/11/2000). It is the only company in Italy to adopt a production process which allows for the control of the entire production procedure from the lemon to the finished product.
In fact, the lemons of Sorrento and Capri IGP which are used for the production of "Limoncello di Capri" are bought directly from the farmers once they have passed a scrupulous selection process - firstly when they are being picked, and afterwards inside the production plant during the peeling procedure, when the peel is obtained to be used for the infusion in alcohol.
