BackgroundArtistry, energy and ingenuity abound in this enticing lemon and grappa-based liqueur from entrepreneur Sandro Bottega and his family. Limoncino Bottega is produced at the Bottega family facilities near Venice in northeast Italy's Veneto region -- the birthplace of grappa. In addition to grappa and glassware, this energetic family's ventures include production of wines and sparkling wines, wine accessories, mineral water, olive oil and organic foods. Produced from fragrantly perfumed rinds of fresh Sicilian lemons, infused in alcohol, leading to an extraction of essential oils. The addition of the best quality grappa from the Bottega family distillery in the Veneto region makes it a liqueur that is as smooth and unctuous as it is fragrant.
