Limoncello Reimagined

CHELLY is bringing limoncello liqueur to a new generation. Our award winning recipe merges the flavor of a lemon liqueur with the texture and high octane of a grain neutral spirit. Sip it, savor it, shoot it for the sweet heat, or mix it to match your mood - CHELLY’s versatility makes it a must-have for any party or get-together.

This Reg CF offering is made available through StartEngine Capital, LLC. This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

$63,110.19 Raised


CHELLY is an innovative new entrant with dual-market relevance. By 2023, the global liqueur market is expected to reach $131B, while the global craft vodka market is projected to hit $112B.

Our efficient team has bootstrapped from the very start, managing to get CHELLY’s distillery up and running with just $25K (compared to an average distillery start-up cost of $317K). We are now ready to take the next step and plan to use this round of funding to scale our growth.

CHELLY has already made an impact. We have won multiple awards, including the Double Gold from the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC), a score of 92, a “Top 100 Spirits of 2021” ranking, and “Best Buy” designation from Wine Enthusiast, as well as festival sponsorships with Country Thunder & DUSK Music Festival.

A vibrant update of a classic Italian liqueur

CHELLY is a modern revival of an old Italian classic, and we’re introducing its delicious, versatile flavor to an equally-bold generation. We’ve taken our family’s handcrafted limoncello recipe and updated it with a fresh new taste. The result is a liqueur that’s perfect for shooting, sipping, or mixing into your favorite cocktail.

Our founding team has built every aspect of the brand from scratch, getting our foot in the door of key partners and accounts and making the most with every dollar we have. With this raise on StartEngine, we’re excited to expand CHELLY’s business and bring our new-age infused limoncello to your next picnic, party, or get-together. 

The Problem

The alcohol industry needs fresh entrants

We believe the alcohol industry currently lacks meaningful innovation. While we’ve watched plenty of new vodka, tequila, and seltzer brands enter the market, it's become clear there is an opportunity to introduce something genuinely new to consumer palettes and lifestyles.

The Solution

A smooth, flavorful new entrant in the liqueur space

CHELLY is a fresh, forward-thinking newcomer to the liqueur space, presenting a reimagined classic with universal appeal. Our award-winning limoncello recipe merges the flavor and texture of a lemon liqueur and a high-octane grain neutral spirit for a clear, smooth texture and delicious lemon flavor. Our liqueur has an ABV of 40% (10% higher than the average limoncello; source), and can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways—sip to savor, shoot for the sweet heat, or mix to match your mood. 

CHELLY is versatile not only in its flavor profile and applications, but also in its access to market share and customers. We’ve built our sales foundation through strong relationships with various distribution channels and accounts, as well as online partnerships with platforms like Drizly and Total Wine. 

CHELLY is currently selling for an SRP of $19.99 per bottle with a blended gross margin of ~45%. In our next phase we plan to transfer our manufacturing to a co-packer and expand throughout Arizona, then as we expand regionally into the Southwest within the next few years, we’re aiming to have a big box distributor on board as we look to enter over 17,000 stores, 18,000 bars, and 17,500 restaurants.

The Market

Multiple uses means multiple markets

The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us that even during challenging economic times, alcohol sales remain consistent. By 2023, the global liqueur market is expected to reach $131B ( source), while the global craft vodka market is projected to hit $112B ( source). The U.S. cordial market alone was valued at $950M in 2020 ( source), and in 2019, liquor caught up to wine as the U.S.'s second favorite adult beverage of choice, thanks to millennial tastes ( source).

( Source |  Source |  Source)

CHELLY is classified as a liqueur, but its versatility makes it a viable alternative for cocktails and mixed drinks. This dual-market relevance opens up an even larger market opportunity and places us in a category of our own.

Our Traction

Industry awards and rave customer reviews

Since CHELLY’s initial founding in 2019, we’ve made incredible progress—knocking on doors, raising funds from family and friends, and building strategic relationships across the alcohol industry in our home state of Arizona. 

In 2021, we continued making an impact. CHELLY won multiple awards, including the Double Gold from the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) and a score of 92, a “Top 100 Spirits of 2021” ranking, and “Best Buy” designation from Wine Enthusiast. We also secured our first festival sponsorship with Arizona’s Country Thunder, a music festival with over 100,000 attendees. 

On the ground, our team saw an average sales rate of over 45% across the first 40 samplings of 2021 - more than doubling the targeted return per bottle sampled of by one of our retail partners.

*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.

CHELLY now has a tried-and-true product that has customers raving and we’re ready to scale. In our next phase, we plan to expand our sales in Arizona by increasing our inventory and staffing - laying the foundation to later expand into the greater Southwest region. We will also be investing into further marketing efforts, such as event sponsorships, trade merchandising, and social outreaches. 

In addition to our limoncello, we also have plans to expand our catalog to include three new flavor options - Orange, Grapefruit, and Lime.

Why Invest

A homegrown product, ready to expand

We began this venture with our hearts in Italy and our homes in Arizona. It’s been a labor of love, driven forward by one full-time employee and a small, dedicated part-time team. We’re thrilled to see so many people already falling in love with our product, and we’re motivated by how far we’ve come in just a few years. 

This round of crowdfunding will enable us to fuel the business forward, giving more fun-seeking and flavor-favoring customers the chance to savor our modern twist on limoncello. We look forward to bringing CHELLY to more people across the region—and we hope you’ll raise a glass and join us.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
