The week in pictures

Grown in Amalfi and distilled in England, Sohocello is the fruit of a collaboration between the ever innovative lot at Herefordshire-based Chase Distillery and Soho newcomers Pizza Pilgrims. The idea for the drink was conceived by Pizza Pilgrims’ founders Thom and James Elliot during a trip to Italy in their Piaggio Porter van.

Driving in the hills above the town of Amalfi, the pair struck upon lemons with perfumed skins made by an 82-year-old Almalfi native, Luigi Aceto, that had benefitted from a unique combination of constant sun, a cooling mediterranean breeze and rich volcanic soil. Hand-peeled and macerated in small batches in Chase’s Hereford potato spirit for a week, every drop of lemon oil is extracted, giving Sohocello its trademark cloudiness.
