The Massa family has been producing artisanal Sorrento limoncello since 1890, but has only been involved in marketing it for just over 25 years. Thanks to the extraordinary quality of our Sorrento Lemon Liqueur, which is just as natural and good as it was in the old days, Villa Massa is now the industry’s leading brand and one of the largest liqueur producers in Europe, and the first company to share real Sorrento limoncello with the rest of the world. Since 1991, this outstanding quality has been acknowledged and recognised numerous times at international level.
