Get a taste of authentic limoncello right here in Adelaide
Bringing you a taste of summer in 8 fun and flavoursome bottles is one of the best South Australian businesses - Ambra Liqueurs.
Coming from an Italian background, Adelaide-based guys Nando Focareta and Peppe Fusco jointly run Ambra Liqueurs, which produces some of the most tantalizing flavours of liqueur that are handmade at their cellar door. Using an authentic Italian family recipe that has made its way across several generations, Nando and Peppe have extended the legacy of this business by injecting it with a new and fresh sense of excitement and enjoyment, with the plethora of items on offer, after taking over the business from Libero De Luca, who retired in 2015.
Situated in Thebarton (~10 minute tram ride / 5 minute drive from the Adelaide CBD), Ambra Liqueurs offers customers with the experience of enjoying fresh, authentic liqueurs that are made using an Italian family recipe, which has been passed down throughout generations.
What makes Ambra Liqueurs stand out from the rest is that it is South Australia's leading market for limoncello liqueur. Its zesty flavour, its inviting and sweet aroma, and its freshness resonate through the drinks that are on offer at the Spritz Bar.

From delicious cocktails to addictive nougats and chocolates, there are versatile ways to enjoy the fun and flavour of the classic limoncello. With summer in full swing, there's no better time to take full advantage of the limoncello ice pops, which were launched late last year. A trendy twist on the traditional ice pops, the limoncello ice pops, which have been created in collaboration with Golden North, are the perfect accessory to enjoy, as you lounge in your spacious backyard, by the pool, or anywhere that offers a wondrous balance of shade and sunshine!
And if it couldn't get any better, Ambra Liqueurs also has a licensed mobile bar on wheels, who is affectionately named Sophia. A 3-wheeled Italian Piaggio that is available for hire at private functions and events (particularly garden parties and weddings), Sophia has been fully equipped with all the Ambra goodness and is fully run by the Ambra staff, who provide the drinks, the glassware, and the glowing customer service.

Can't get enough of the Ambra magic? Well, you're in luck, because, as of February 1st, the duo have announced a new experience of enjoying the liqueurs through Ambra masterclasses! Starting March 22, 2019, attendees can have hands-on experience & learn how to become a domestic mixologist - Ambra style! Attendees will be able to polish their spritz skills and recreate some well-loved Ambra cocktails under the guidance of expert bartenders - and yes, you'll be able to taste your signature cocktails, as you get through the class! Tickets are $35 and will include cheese platters and 3 x Ambra Cocktails.
Whether you're after a "quiet one" or are looking to get your party on, Ambra Liqueurs is an excellent spot to kickstart a fun and fabulous night. Filled with complimentary tastings, freshly made cocktails, and plenty of stock available for purchase on the day, you couldn't be surrounded with a better combination of good company, delicious drinks, and an inviting social atmosphere.
Bonus: if you're a big fan of Ambra Liqueurs like I am, you should totally come to the Ambra Experienceevents, which involve a tour of the facility, lots of samplers and tastings, and an electric social vibe that offers a welcoming space to returning regulars and newbies alike. But, make sure you book early, as these events tend to sell out pretty quick!
