Villa Massa create what we believe to be the quintessential expression of the Italian classic, limoncello.
Using a traditional family recipe dating back to 1890 and with lemons supplied by the same farmer for over a quarter of a century, Villa Massa is made from handpicked organic Sorrento Oval lemons. Organically grown and rich with natural flavours, this exceptional variety of lemons have a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status as a marker of their quality.
PRODUCER: The Massa family have been producing this ‘liquore di limone di Sorrento’ from their estate for over 100 years, notable as being the first company to produce and sell limoncello first within Italy itself, and then as their reputation grew, to overseas markets.
Paying homage to a family recipe handed down from generation to generation for over a century, Villa Massa was founded in 1991 by brothers Sergio and Stefano Massa who were keen to share the product of their family’s craft with the world.
Situated high in the hills of Sorrento, overlooking the majestic Bay of Naples, sits the historic ‘Le Grotelle’, the sun-drenched lemon grove where Villa Massa’s limoncello was first created, and which continues to provide the exceptional fruit used in
their recipe today.
The liqueur’s family recipe dates back to 1890, and uses lemons supplied by the same farmer for over a quarter of a century.
PRODUCTION: The Key Ingredients from Massa Limoncello are: Organic Ovale di Sorrento (P.G.I.) ans Lemons. This naturally flavoured limoncello is made with organically-grown Ovale di Sorrento (P.G.I.) lemons which have a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status as a marker of their exceptional quality. Captivatingly vibrant, Villa Massa’s rich yellow hue is a result of these natural ingredients.
Respecting traditional harvesting and production techniques, the lemons are handpicked and peeled within 24 hours for the utmost concentration and freshness of their essential oils for flavour and aroma, before being infused with spirit, sugar and water.
HOW TO ENJOY IT: Drink it neat, ice cold, or try it in a variety of refreshing drinks from zesty aperitivo hour mixes such as the Villa Massa and Tonica, in a range of Mediterranean-inspired cocktails, or pay homage to its origins as a superb digestif.
