Danny DeVito Unveils Personal Label Limoncello Liqueur Actor, Producer, Director Partners with Harbrew Imports to Create Danny

DeVito's Premium Limoncello Liqueur



    ORLANDO, Fla. and FREEPORT, N.Y., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Danny DeVito
 -- actor, producer, director and proud Italian American -- has reached back
 to his roots to bring Americans a taste of Sorrento in Danny DeVito's
 Premium Limoncello. This estate crafted, lemon-flavored liqueur was
 unveiled today at the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America Annual
 Convention in Orlando, FL. Harbrew Imports, Inc. of Freeport, New York, is
 launching Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello in the U.S.
     "We're thrilled to partner with Danny to develop an exquisite
 Limoncello that's truly worthy of bearing his name," said Richard DeCicco,
 CEO of Harbrew Imports. "He's a beloved entertainer with a refined palate
 and a taste for the good life, and this spirit suits his spirit perfectly.
 We worked closely with Danny to create a unique Limoncello made from the
 finest Sorrento Lemons. The flavor is a perfect balance of tart and sweet.
 It's a crisp, refreshing liqueur."
     Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello is a long way from his childhood
 lemonade stand in New Jersey where he and his friends "sold the best
 lemonade you ever tasted" for a nickel a glass. But his new branded liqueur
 is the "best Limoncello you ever tasted." His Limoncello emerged from his
 Italian-American heritage and fond memories of visiting Italy's Amalfi
 Coast with his children years ago.
     Estate Crafted and Bottled in Italy
     Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello Liqueur is produced and bottled on an
 estate nestled amid thousands of lemon trees on Italy's breathtaking
 Sorrento Peninsula on the Amalfi Coast. His Limoncello is made from the
 zest -- or the outer, yellow skin -- of flavorful Sorrento Lemons, which
 are revered worldwide for their remarkable aroma, rich essential oils,
 exceptional juice and acid content. Sorrento Lemons are cultivated with
 meticulous care and each tree is protected from the threat of harsh weather
 by a mesh covering suspended from tall wooden frames.
     The lemon zest is mixed with sugar, water and alcohol to create the
 finished product -- a luscious, lemony, 60-proof liqueur best served very
 cold or over ice. The Limoncello is bottled at the estate in a tall,
 curvaceous black bottle with a transparent lemon on the front. The label
 and decorative lemon are serigraphed onto the bottle and then fired.
 Italian designer Lorenzo Damiano created the bottle and labels.
     Available Nationwide
     Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello will be available in retail third
 quarter of this year. The product will be available initially in 750ml and
 50ml "mini" sizes. Harbrew Imports plans to add a 375ml bottle later. The
 suggested retail price for the 750ml bottle will be $23.99.
