Don Ciccio & Figli
Don Ciccio & Figli shares the rich history of artisanal liqueur making from the Amalfi Coast to the United States through a series of time-tested recipes handed down from generation to generation. Don Ciccio’s artisanal liqueurs offer a refreshing glimpse of the past with a nod to the future. Each unique handmade liqueur begins with a blend of all-natural fresh fruit, spices, and grains.
Creating these beautifully handcrafted liqueurs is a labor of love, steeped in family tradition. This is my legacy dating back over 100 years and I am proud to share it with you.
“Don Ciccio” is my grandfather’s name. He used to be a ‘carrozziere’, who owned a small body shop, a flourishing trade in those days, but his true passion was making artisanal liqueurs such as Limoncello. So with the help of Giovanni Porpora, my other grandfather, a true ‘falegname’, wood worker, they built a small distillery on the hills of Furore located in the coastal region in the south of Italy near Positano and Capri. The distillery was built facing one of the most beautiful views on the Amalfi Coast surrounded by 12 acres of lemon trees.
This is how our story began, back in 1883.
After almost 100 years, the distillery shut down in 1980, because of a massive earthquake. The distillery and the lemon trees were completely destroyed by the catastrophic event.
So here I am today, born in a lemon garden, wanting to continue the family business. Don Ciccio & Figli plans to expand the family tradition and to make people understand and appreciate the hard work, the love for our art and the passion for artisanal liqueurs that my grandfathers began so many years ago.
