Award-Winning Connecticut-Made Liqueur

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Peel began as a homegrown operation started by a group of friends and family who produced their own batches of limoncello. Gianfranco Didoomenico and Angelo Mastrodomenico are co-founders of the company which now has a distillery in Ashford.

The two shared a few recipes on the Fox CT Morning Extra including their “CosmoPEELitan,” the “Limon-Punch Sour Jack” and the “Blue APEEL.”

After exchanging the liqueurs among each other as gifts, Didoomenico and Mastrodomenico were encouraged to produce their product on a larger scale. They recently were a 2013 Double Gold Winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

In addition to making cocktails, limoncello can also be used for cooking with meat and poultry.
