Fabrizia Limoncello, an Italian-American spirits company, from Salem, NH started in 2007 after founders and brothers Nick and Phil took a trip to visit family inCalabria, Italy. They experienced the magic of Italy and were inspired to create something special when they came home. Many nights and weekends of hard work led to the creation of Fabrizia Limoncello. Their line of handcrafted spirits includes a variety of outstanding flavored Limoncello and Italian Margaritas.
Once the Covid-19 Pandemic hit the United States, Nick and Phil felt they needed to do something more with the resources they had to help front-line workers and consumers. They quickly ramped-up and started to manufacture hand sanitizers. “Made using domestically produced ethyl alcohol, at 80% alcohol strength, our product comes with convenient spray tops, and is offered in a variety of sizes and at below-market prices! We are also now including free AND same day shipping!” said Nick and Phil. Necessity is truly the mother of invention, and this is a case in point of extraordinary resourcefulness at its best.
Quoted from Fabrizia’s Handsanitizer website’s “Our Story” section (Link Below):
“The Fabrizia Hand Sanitizer Company was started for one purpose and one purpose only, to help-out front-line personnel during the Covid-19 pandemic. We made it our goal to get to as many hospital workers, police officers, firefighters, and nursing homes as we could. Requests came in daily and daily we mapped out our routes, drove our cars, and brought what we could to the places that needed it most. It’s been quite a ride and after donating over 20,000 bottles, we are proud to finally make this product available to you!”
Our Own Italian Enclaves Historical Society Testimonial:
“When my case of hand sanitizer arrived, I was at first shocked because I have never seen a hand sanitizer that was non-viscous before. I immediately realized this was a huge benefit because not only did I use the sanitizer to clean my hands, I also poured it on just about everything I could sanitize like my office desk, door knobs, keyboard and everything else that was potentially carrying germs. I was touched by the story of how Nick and Phil used sheer ingenuity to shift gears so quickly to support their community during the pandemic. I wouldn’t purchase or promote a product that I don’t personally believe in, and I firmly believe that Nick and Phil encapsulate the American dream in not only their call-to-duty and generosity in selflessly deploying their resources to those in need, but also in their ability to turn a lemon of a situation into a multi-lateral success.”
