The tale of Don Ciccio & Figli begins on another continent, and in many ways, in another world. It is 1852 in the Italian town of Atrani. In this ancient hamlet clinging to the rocky coast of Amalfi, a child is born. He is Vincenzo, known to friends and family as ‘N’gioletto’, and by his hand, the great liqueur recipes of the Amodeo family will come into being. In the summer of 1883, now a man, he becomes the first but not the last Amodeo to create the finest liqueurs on the Amalfi Coast. From bitter Amaro to sweet Limoncello, the family liqueurs would become a part of day-to-day life, the routines that ordain the eternal traditions of southwest Italy.
Leap forward to 2012. Five thousand miles from Italy, and thirty two years after the earthquake of Irpinia shook the family craft to a standstill, Don Ciccio & Figli liqueurs flow again. Today, when you taste any liqueur in our range, from the bitter to the sweet, you experience the rebirth of the spirit of the Amodeo family from the Amalfi Coast, just as it was in 1883.
Our newest addition, Ambrosia, the nectar of the gods, is an all-natural Italian herbal liqueur that leans more bittersweet. Clean and refreshing, it is made with turmeric, blood orange, cantelope, carrots and 9 botanicals.
