Some wise person once said “When life gives you lemons… make Limoncello!”. We couldn’t agree more.
Enter, the Limoncello 3195 Project...
We have been inspired by this classic Italian liqueur, especially the uniquely delicious homemade versions that are given as family gifts up and down the country's sunny coastline. So, Boatrocker is setting out to transport this tradition to a different coast and make a Limoncello for locals by locals, using homegrown, unwaxed lemons plucked from the trees of our fellow 3195 legends.
Is your lemon tree bursting with fruit? Fancy swapping lemons for a bottle of Limoncello?
If you live in the postcode of 3195, you can get involved!
On the weekend of the 10-13 November bring us 5kgs of your freshly picked lemons (which is approx 25 large lemons - note: we will be weighing not counting though). Over the following month, we will produce the finest Limoncello this side of Italy with all of our communal lemons.
In return for every 5kg of your lemons, you will receive a 500ml bottle of Boatrocker 3195 Limoncello, which you can pick up on 11 December at our Limoncello Launch Party.
(If you are unable to collect on this day we will keep the bottle/s aside for you.)

Visible insect or skin damage
Major skin scaring
Minor blemish is ok
No wax - so you can't bring supermarket lemons
Bright yellow skin
Must be unwaxed – ie picked fresh from your backyard
