Ventura Limoncello Company

James Carling and Manuela Zaretti-Carling combined Manuala's Italian grandmother's limoncello recipe with incredible local produce into a flourishing business. They source fully-ripened lemons straight from the grove and hand peel all the fruit to ensure that only the top layer of peel containing the oils are used (no pith!).

Fun fact: "The true sign of an all natural Limoncello is “Il Collarino” (the little collar). This is formed by the citrus oils that gather at the top of the bottle." 

Thanks to Ventura, we now have the perfect way to finish off big pasta dinners!
