   5 Generations of  Liqueur Making   

Andrea & Marzia were born in Northern Italy with Andrea’s family originating from Sicliy, and Marzia’s family originating from Mantova. They emigrated together to New Zealand in 2007 and set up a home in magical Kerikeri.


Marzia’s family has been in the wine making business for generations and Andrea’s family has a tradition in liqueurs.


With their combined family experience and having tasted many hundreds of different Limoncello in their lifetimes, Andrea & Marzia know the importance of using fresh and perfect ingredients.


The secret of Limoncello must be in the persistent, but not pungent, and pleasant aftertaste.

After they had found the best lemons in the Bay of Islands, and the purest alcohol produced in New Zealand, Andrea & Marzia began to develop the best and purest Sovrano Limoncello in early 2009. From the very beginning it was a success throughout New Zealand, with ongoing great results, and it continues to grow every day.


Their goal is to produce the best and finest Limoncello liqueur in New Zealand.


After conquering the New Zealand market, Andrea & Marzia want to bring their Sovrano Limoncello to the highest international level competitions in order to raise the Limoncello made in New Zealand to the greatest level.
