Applewood Distillery take our Limoncello perhaps a tad seriously. Made from a safely guarded recipe - two different types of lemons from South Australia's oldest citrus plantation in Lennane Orchards, Montacute Valley, Adelaide Hills. This citrus orchard is believed to be planted 150 years ago.
Why is Applewood's Limoncello important? The lemons are what one might call "UGLY". Yes, they are different sizes and kind of weird looking. Unfortunately, that meant that supermarkets did not want to buy them. So, after trying to sell these ugly little lemons for years, the growers decided to remove the 150 year old trees. To help preserve this historic orchard, Applewood Distillery put up our hands and promised to buy all whole crop to make our delicious Limoncello.
It is a labour of love. Literally! We spend 12 hours hand peeling lemons from the orchard to produce this delicious drop. In fact, they have a family ritual of taking turns to peel a couple of buckets a day. Everyone chips in!
We think all lemons are beautiful and hope you do too. Saluti!

It's an Amaro - a type of bitter/herbal aperitif that have been popular for more than a century - famous for it's use in the Negroni or Spritz. We like to take an Australian-spin on things - and dry aperitifs seem to epitomise a renaissance in contemporary Australian drinking.
It just so happens that seemingly - 90% of all native Australian botanicals are also intensely bitter. Probably something to do with the harshness of our climate - and one native ingredient stood head-and-shoulders above the rest when it came to Økar - Riberries. Otherwise known as Lilly Pilly.
The Riberry's cranberry-tartness, hints of clove and bark-like bitterness make it well-suited for an Australian aperitif. Riberries aren't the only stars in this beverage - alongside we see Davidson Plum, Finger Limes, Lemon Myrtle, Saltbush, Rivermint, Peppermint and Strawberry Gum Leaves (just to name a few!).
