Murphy Distributors welcomed two new Italian imports to its state portfolio in February. OTTO, a premium liqueur made purely with Bergamotto from Calabria, offers an intense yet clear fragrance and unique citrus, bittersweet taste notes. With farm-to-bottle origins, the 30% ABV, 60-proof liqueur is crafted in small batches with no colorants, preservatives or artificial components.

At 32% ABV and 64 proof, the limoncello is produced and bottled by hand in the peninsula of Sorrento, Italy,the birthplace of limoncello.
