Limoncello di Capri launches cream variant

Mangrove Global will distribute the new expression from Italian spirit brand Limoncello di Capri in the UK.

Limoncello di Capri Cream
The liqueur has an ABV of 19%

Limoncello di Capri is owned by Italian spirits group Molinari. The brand makes its liqueurs on the Amalfi Coast using 100% Sorrento lemons, which have a protected geographical indication.

The 19% ABV liqueur blends ‘intense’ lemon notes with ‘delicate’ cream. The brand suggests serving it over ice, in cocktails or in dessert recipes.

Richard Glover, export area manager for Molinari, said: “Limoncello di Capri is known for the flavour, quality and provenance of its liquid.

“The new cream liqueur marks the first extension to the product range and has been crafted in response to increased consumer demand in the category and their love of both aperitivo and digestifs.

“Equally as delicious as the original, it’s a new way for customers to enjoy the sun-fuelled, pleasure-filled flavour of Southern Italy. And it’s an exciting new ingredient for cocktail serves up and down the UK.”

It will retail for £17 (US$21) per 500ml bottle.

Nick Gillett, managing director of Mangrove Global said: “We love having the original Limoncello di Capri as part of the Mangrove portfolio, so working in partnership with the brand to bring out another product dripping with provenance and innovation in equal amount is an absolute joy.

“The British love affair with Italian liqueurs is well-documented. And with limoncello rivalling aperitifs as the ‘spritz’ spirit of choice this year, I’m quite sure the appetite for a smooth, creamy variety will be off the charts.”
