Distilleria Bertagnolli
Limoncel Liqueur
Trentino

Founded in 1870, the Distilleria Bertagnolli has carried on the tradition of high-quality spirits for four generations.  Once the supplier to imperial courts, Bertagnolli continues to hone its techniques and selects the finest ingredients to make fine spirits.  

Bertagnolli’s Limoncel is made from a base of Sorrento lemons, some of the finest lemons on the peninsula.  This specific type of lemon is especially rich in essential oils, which make it particularly aromatic, and, therefore, ideal for distilling.
