The true origin of Concerto remains shrouded in mystery though many attribute its origins to a group of inventive monks from Convento Di Francesco di Tramonti.
This dark liquer is is obtained by soaking in alcohol for 60 days a ”Concert” of 15 herbs and spices, barley coffee and espresso. The resulting liquor is dark in color with a balanced flavor. The secret combination of ingredients in the infusion is highly guarded by the monks.
Don Ciccio & Figli is the only producer of ”Concerto” outside of the Amalfi Coast.
Best served chilled.
|”Don Ciccio” is my grandfather’s name. He used to be a ’carrozziere’, who owned a small body shop, a flourishing trade in those days, but his true passion was making artisanal liqueurs such as Limoncello. So with the help of Giovanni Porpora, my other grandfather, a true ’falegname’, wood worker, they built a small distillery on the hills of Furore located in the coastal region in the south of Italy near Positano and Capri. The distillery was built facing one of the most beautiful views on the Amalfi Coast surrounded by 12 acres of lemon trees.
This is how our story began, back in 1883.
After almost 100 years, the distillery shut down in 1980, because of a massive earthquake. The distillery and the lemon trees were completely destroyed by the catastrophic event.
So here I am today, born in a lemon garden, wanting to continue the family business. Don Ciccio & Figli plans to expand the family tradition and to make people understand and appreciate the hard work, the love for our art and the passion for artisanal liqueurs that my grandfathers began so many years ago.
