If you wish to make a real and incredible Limoncello, better than what you can buy from a liquor store, you need to use high-proof alcohol (no less than 90% in strength). The commonly made mistake is using ordinary vodka instead. In order to extract the essential oils & flavours from the lemon zest, only strong alcohol must be used, no less than 90% strength. It must be top quality Food grade alcohol, such, for example, as Grain. Another option is, if you strictly want to adher to the Italian traditions – use wine distilled alcohol.
Puhoi Organic Distillery offers top quality Food-Grade alcohol of several types, all high strength (starting from 90% ABV+), shipped around New Zealand only.
Our alcohol is of the best quaility, GMO-free, distilled using Solar energy, and it is certainly the best alcohol on NZ market for making Limoncellos.
