Woman and locally-owned handmade limoncello company, Mamma Bella Cello, to be featured in Hammonton-based Annata Wine Bar and No. 79 Bar & Restaurant throughout the month of March to commemorate International Women’s Day and National Women’s History Month. The beverages feature the names of key historical women in the spirits industry.

No. 79 featured beverages include Helen’s Sassy Whisky Sour, Flannigan’s Fashionable Brandy Alexander, Cleopatra’s Creamy Lemon Drop, and Mamma’s Spirited Sangria.  Each cocktail is accompanied by a story of how these famous, historical women helped to shape the history of the Spirits Industry. 

Mamma Bella Cello is owned by Hammonton-native, Alison Brita, who serves as the company’s CEO and Master Blender. She continues to push through the glass ceiling in the Spirits world. “I have been inspired by great women past and present, and I am all about raising my glass to them. I am honored to have this platform to celebrate these historical women of my industry,” said Brita.

In 2022, I had the chance to interview Alison Brita of Mamma Bella Cello on my radio show, Table for Two. I fell in love with her cellos and the woman behind the brand. She is a force in the spirits industry and Mamma Bella Cello should we on everyone’s radar.
