Still looking for a last minute gift for that special boozebag on your list? Perhaps a bottle of locally made limoncello would fit the bill. And how fortuitous is it that today like right now Pollyodd Fine Liqueurs just opened the doors of its retail shop on East Passyunk Ave.? With partner Tom Cavaliere, Joan Verratti, who is the only female distiller in the United States, launched a line of spirits with such boozey flavors as lemon, orange, lime, and chocolate. More are in the works, too. And thanks to newly relaxed liquor laws, Pollyodds limited distillery license allows Verratti to sell her wares from an ordinary storefront. Her line of limoncello, and -cello-esque drinks are also available 32 Wine and Spirit Shops in Pennsylvania.
