Made from Eureka lemons, the fragrance in pure, fresh, and sultry; like a morning in an Italian lemon grove. There is an elegant silky feeling on the palate; with just the proper amount of sweetness that makes for an amazing, refreshing finish.
Sorbettas are the first potato-based, gluten free liqueurs available in the United States. Sorbettas achieve an uncompromising freshness in taste by using only hand peeled and macerated fresh fruits in each batch and using Ultra Premium LiV Vodka as the base. Crafted in micro-batches using 100 gallons of LiV Vodka as the base; the citrus are prepared for maceration using just the skins of about 1,500 pieces of fruit.
The result is an incredible natural freshness and fidelity both on the nose and palate to each of the Sorbetta flavors.

Why are the Sorbettas called liqueurs if they are Vodka based?
They technically could be called Vodkas but we chose to designate them liqueurs. The Sorbettas are infused with fresh fruit, soaking up the natural sugars as well as having the minimal amount of sugar added to be considered a liqueur. This natural flavoring allows for the Sorbettas to match the fidelity of the fruit.
How much fruit is used in each 100 Gallon micro-batch?
For the citrus fruits; approximately 1,400 pieces of zest are used in each batch. For the berries; about 20 full flats are used in each micro-batch.
How do you make the Sorbettas?
The citrus are hand peeled using an apple peeler so we only get the zest of the fruit and none of the pith. The fruits are then wrapped in cheesecloth and infused in higher proof version of LiV Vodka for about 30 days. They are then blended down with pure cane sugar and finally micron filtered before bottling to remove any organic matter.
