Don Vincenzo Staibano was born on the Amalfi Coast a stunning and vibrant stretch of coastline south of Naples, Italy, where he spent his entire life. Surrounded by such outstanding natural beauty and unique architecture, Don Staibano unsurprisingly delighted in the dolce vita
of the Amalfi Coast and its unrivalled food and agricultural produce. Much of his life was devoted to tending his lemon groves which, as are typical of the Amalfi region, produced abundant lemons of the most incredible colour, size, taste and fragrance.
The Don was known for his style and charisma. He pursued a life filled with fun and laughter and was famous for hosting some of the best parties on the coastline. He was also renowned for his unique tasting alcoholic drinks - his first, dating back to 1932, being the recipes used to create Amalfi Smooth
and Staibano Limoncello
Staibano Ltd was born in 2015 following a decision made by Cesco Amodio, the great grandson of Don Staibano, that the Don’s alcoholic recipes should be shared for the rest of the world to enjoy.
