The Ancient World.
The Fruit of the Gods.
A nectar of pure, golden sunlight.
Aphrodite would pour it for her lovers.
Cleopatra gifted the Island of Aphrodite to Marc Antony.
He bottled it and gave us the recipe.
Citron d'Oro is the private label beverage of the Ferretti Family, long associated with Reggio Emilia, in Emilia-Romagna, Italy.
Family legend tells of a Ferretti ancestor in the company of Cleopatra as she presented the Island of Cyprus to Marcus Antonius as a wedding gift.
Marcus Antonius is said to have had great affection for an intoxicating liquid
crafted by the priestesses of Aphrodite from a local fruit cultivated near the temples.
That ancestor is said to have been tasked with guarding the secret of its special recipe.
Centuries later, the modern lemon variant of that ancient fruit found its way to Italy
and the ubiquitous limoncello liqueur spread from family to family.
But the original recipe, and the identity of that ancient fruit, remains a Ferretti Family secret.
It is tradition to offer our guests a taste of what we enjoy so much.
Served over ice, their smiles are our pleasure.
We look forward to yours.
Just don't call it limoncello!
