A zesty explosion of aromatic, complex yuzu flavours. This delicious yuzu liqueur delivers a citrus zing that is balanced with light sugar sweetness. Mouth-watering citrus juice on the nose, with gentle citrus acidity and tingling charisma, followed by a final hit of sweetness and lasting zestiness.

This is an innovative approach to citrus. Far more refined than a limoncello, it is zesty and juicy but with all the subtlety of the citrus fruit preserved. Every part of the fresh yuzu is used to capture as wide a range of the complex flavour as possible.

About yuzu

Known as the 'Queen of Citrus’ in Japan, yuzu is a cross between a wild citrus and a sour mandarin. It originated, and grows wild, in central China and Tibet. Yuzu delivers a famously aromatic and complex blend of citrus - there are notes of fresh mandarin, grapefruit and lime aroma, with a lemon-orange acidity.

Distilling the whole yuzu

Our yuzu liqueur starts life as a typically smooth, copper pot distilled potato vodka. This base spirit is distilled separately, then expertly combined with whole yuzu puree. The yuzu is supplemented with fresh lemons to ensure a balanced range of citrus flavour and acidity. Sugar is added, as is customary with liqueurs - this boosts the natural sweetness and highlights the fresh fruit flavours.

The way we make our Yuzucello is distinct from limoncello. Traditionally, limoncello is made exclusively with lemon zest (no juice or pith), macerated in high-strength alcohol for 4-5 days, then filtered, diluted and sugar added. By contrast, our aim here is to preserve the complex flavour of the whole yuzu fruit, while still producing a highly flavourful product that speaks for itself. It has the two typical hallmarks of a liqueur: it has more sugar and less alcohol than the spirit it started as.

How to enjoy Yuzucello

Yuzucello is perfect as an aperitif or digestif, particularly on a balmy summer evening. For a refreshing long drink, simply add soda water and ice. Or for a sophisticated Yuzucello spritzer, it can be combined with prosecco or another sparkling white wine.

We also love a Yuzucello mojito: shake fresh mint, ice, white rum and Yuzucello for one minute. Pour over ice, top up with soda water and garnish with fresh mint, plus a slice of yuzu or lemon.

I bought this first for my partner's Christmas because we love yuzu and limoncello. Still, I never predicted how delicious and fresh this would be! We're on our second bottle and plan to always have one available in the cupboard.

Thanks for the great feedback, it's a favourite in the office too (although not whilst we're in the office - unless it's Christmas maybe!). Cheers!
