TV celebrity and lawyer Nancy Dell’Olio is launching an organic, sugar free and contemporary reinvention of the classic Italian Limoncello in time for this summer’s alfresco drinking occasions
Called Limonbello, the recipe uses Sicilian lemons with no added sugar, tapping into the popular low calorie drinks market. Limonbello gets its flavour and neon-yellow colour from the infusion of the skins of locally grown lemons in pure neutral alcohol.
Nancy states: “I wanted to put a new twist on a classic Italian after-dinner drink, encompassing some of the luxurious home grown produce found across my native Italy and the healthy, energetic lifestyle Italians are so famous for.”
Inspired by Nancy’s Italian heritage and love of food, wines and proper home cooking, Limonbello is the first product to establish the Dell’Olio range of initiatives encompassing a premium range of drinks, “food creations and holistic lifestyle opportunities”.
Limonbello can be enjoyed on the rocks, added to a glass of Champagne or even mixed into a Mojito to create the perfect Summer cocktail and aperitif.
Limonbello 30%ABV is made with organic green lemons in Sicily. It will be available in department stores and in top clubs and restaurants from July 20 at a RRP of £35 for 50cl.
