Our limoncello had exceeded our expectations since we first released it commercially in 2017. The feedback has always been so generous, and it always sells out very quickly. We love grapefruit, and we experimented a lot with the idea of producing a cello with the sharp, sweet tang of that fruit.
Finally, we were happy. We had a balanced drink that had a beautiful clear tang of grapefruit and a powerhouse rasp of alcohol. A trace of sweetness is left on the tongue, but it is really all about the grapefruit.
We named our drink Kecello for Rita, our favourite icon.
