A

An independent, family owned spirit company making bright, citrus-based liqueurs in the classic Old World manner is very cool indeed.

A true small-batch spirit with quality, charm, and style being sold for under $20 a bottle is always a bargain.

Analysis

Fabrizia is a small, family owned and managed company based in Salem, NH. Brothers Phil and Nick Mastroianni founded the company in 2008. The Fabrizia Crema di Limoncello is made in a fairly straightforward manner. Eighty percent of the final product is their classic Limoncello (see the Limoncello review for details on its production) with 20% comprised of an alcohol cream from Wisconsin. At first sip I thought that it was perhaps too subtle as the cream muted the bright citrus notes. But the second sip convinced me that this is a beautiful and complex Liqueur and a great alternative to the classic Limoncello for those who may not love the tart, vibrant citrus zest flavors as much as I do.

How to Enjoy

Sip chilled and neat after dinner. It can also work brilliantly as a base to a cold fruit sauce served on dense cakes and fruit tarts.
