Limoncello - The drink of "La Dolce Vita"
Last but not least we will see the profuction of the famous limoncello the drink of Dolce Vita that was first made in Greece by the Corfiots.
Homeland of “limoncello” is a part of southern Italy famous for its beauty, wildlife and luxury. This is the island where once dominated what we now call “dolce vita”, Capri, Italy. Its origins are said to have started around 1950 when a beautiful and fragrant garden in the center of the famous Capri was an inspiration for a housewife. The garden of the once house has been turned into one of the most popular restaurants on the island. One of Capri’s most regular guests was the Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis. He used to visit Corfu Island and the Amalfi Coast in the summers with his wife Jackie Kennedy. It is known that the Greek business tycoon used to possess the Greek tycoon. During his summer vacations, the island of Corfu was a necessary stop for him.
So, it is said that the locals were once told the experience of tasting limoncello. Being an island with such a strong Venetian aura, the people of Corfu did not hesitate to experiment with its production, which had a very successful development.
