So we're called Limoncello and we sell Limoncello. But just how much do you know about this highly quaffable tipple? Here's our top 5 Interesting facts about the drink itself:

1. Limoncello is one of the most popular liqueurs in Italy.
2. Limoncello has been around for at least a century, but its precise origins are unclear. One story has the fishermen and farmers preparing their own versions. Another has friars making it in their monasteries… Do you ever wonder if any of the friars ever minded making all this alcohol but not supping it?
