Bergamot Honey 500g

Flavoured Honey by Miele del Tuccio

Bergamot Honey is the excellent encounter between wildflower honey that I produce and the essence of bergamot essence produced by an artisan in a nearby town. 

Bergamot is a citrus fruit that is produced only in our province, Reggio Calabria (Calabria, Italy).

It has a very citrusy sweet and sour taste and is excellent to combine with fish and cheeses.

About Bergamot: 

The exact genesis of bergamot is unknown; the yellow colour would indicate a derivation by genetic mutation starting from pre-existing citrus species, such as lemon, bitter orange or lime.

Its systematic classification as botanic species has also generated many controversies among botanists: some classified it as a species in its own right while others indicate it as a subspecies of bitter orange (Swingle). Some legends make bergamot derive from the Canary Islands, from which it would have been imported by Christopher Columbus; other sources favour China, Greece, or the city of Berga in Spain; while the story of the Moor of Spain is told, who sold a branch for 18 shields to the lords Valentino of Reggio (in Calabria), who grafted it on a bitter orange in one of their possessions in the Santa Caterina district (Reggio Calabria).

The etymology of the most likely name Bergamotto is "Begarmundi", that is, however, of the lord in Turkish, for its similarity with the shape of the Bergamot pear.
