Combine a passion for distilling native botanicals and craft exquisite liqueurs, and the mouth-watering Zesty Limoncello is born. Manly Spirits Co. present this unique Italian-style limoncello with an Australian twist.
We hand-peel the finest lemons at the distillery to craft this exceptional liqueur with a zesty, lemon meringue tart finish. In our ‘Manly Spirits’ way, we complement our lemon liqueur with the addition of native botanicals distillates made from local Lemon Aspen and Lemon Myrtle. Enjoy chilled, straight from the freezer as an after-dinner digestive, or over ice with soda.

Using carefully selected large lemons with perfumed peel supplied from an orchard on the central coast, north of Sydney, we hand peel the lemons, being most particular to avoid the bitter pith. Infusion of the peel into the smooth grain spirit cannot be rushed. Citrus oils combine with the native botanical distillates of Lemon Aspen with its tart citrus flavour, like a blend of grapefruit and lime with a hint of honey and eucalyptus and Lemon Myrtle.
Other Info About Zesty Limoncello
How is your Zesty Limoncello infused?
The perfumed peel is slowly and carefully infused into the smooth grain spirit so the citrus oils combine with the native botanical distillates to create a sweet citrus blend that offers a hint of honey, eucalyptus and lemon myrtle.
To avoid a bitter taste that can spoil the concoction, we hand-peel the lemons, which are supplied from an orchard on the Central Coast. While our limoncello offers a variety of delectable flavours, lemon zest is the clear hero — its presence ensures a lengthy and delicious tart, sherbet aftertaste, while the citrus notes dance on your palate with every sip.
What do you recommend pairing with Zesty Limoncello?
For avid sippers, you can enjoy our Zesty Limoncello chilled or straight from the freezer as an after-dinner palate cleanser. If you’re new to the world of lemon liqueur, you may prefer to enjoy it over ice with a dash of soda or infused into a refreshing cocktail that packs a punch. You can create a spritz that includes this spirit, thyme, fresh lemon juice, and a dash of prosecco. Or try an Oaked Martinez that’s strained into a chilled coupe and mixed with Mancino Vermouth Rosso, Benedictine, spiced bitters and orange bitters. Garnish with an orange twist and serve cold on a hot summer’s day.
What makes Limoncello unique?
Our mouth-watering limoncello combines a traditional Italian recipe from the Amalfi Coast with native Australian botanicals to create a unique blend that offers a fresh and zesty lemon meringue tart finish. Whether you enjoy a small measure over ice or add a dash to a sour summer cocktail, the citrus oils offer a lengthy aftertaste, so enjoy the sherbert finish of our lemon liqueur as you sip under the hot summer sun.
Lemon aspen can be found in tropical climates like Queensland, and has a tart lemon and grapefruit flavour profile, yet a little earthy.
Lemon myrtle has a fresh aroma of citrus and a delicate menthol and eucalyptus essence, with a sweet and refreshing lemon flavour.
Lemon Zest is the clear hero in our Zesty Limoncello. We hand peel our lemons to control the amount of pith included and send off the rest of the lemon to a local juice maker to make fruit juice.
