This Gin is handmade in small batches using only natural flavourings. They take zested Lemons and steep them with sugar and then blend the liqueur with our finest gin. Produced using Buxton Water the result is a subtle yet wonderful homage to the Italian Limoncello drink. The natural yellow colour of this gin liqueur makes an attractive addition as a cocktail with tonic over ice or even served its own in chilled glasses as they do in Italy. Try adding Scillian Lemoncello Gin Liqueur to Prosecco or Champagne to create a delectable Lemon Gin Cocktail fizz.

A flavour for Italy
A taste of Italy in a glass, now what food should you order to go with it?
Or before it should we say,
Limoncello is traditionally served chilled as an after-dinner digestivo. Along the Amalfi Coast, it is usually served in small ceramic glasses that are also chilled. This tradition has been carried into other parts of Italy. Limoncello is also used to make various cocktails, pastry or ice cream.
In the UK, limoncello is also called lemoncello but whatever you call it, it is a wonderful drink with a growing popularity. Plus now with this clever twist from an independent artisan producer, the combination you've been looking for, may just be a few clicks away.
