Stages of production: Preparation The fruit is processed within two hours of collection to preserve all the aromas, fragrance and freshness. Lemons are peeled by hand through the use of special knives that allow to use only the outside of the peel which is the most rich in essential oils. Peeling by hand allows you to break all the pores of the skin so that essential oils all end up in the liqueur. The peel remains in an infusion of pure alcohol at 96 ° for about a week. After a series of filtrations, it joins this infusion to a syrup thus obtaining the final product.
To retain all the natural features are not added colorants or preservatives. Proof of its genuineness is the possible presence of outcrops of the essential oils of lemon in the neck of the bottle.
