Bergamot is a unique citrus fruit which many know from the oil that infuses Earl Grey tea. It is said that bergamot is the result of a hybrid of lemon and bitter orange, which may explain its unique bittersweet flavor. This traditional dessert is inspired by the unique citrus fruits brought centuries ago to the island of Chios by the Venetians. Handmade with pieces of bergamot citrus peel floating in a simple syrup of sugar, lemon juice and water - no preservatives or additives at all, just simple island sweetness. Enjoy it on its own or atop yogurt, ice cream, or cheesecake. It's a flavor unlike any other!

We chose Citrus for the way they have exalted the rare variety of Chian Mandarin, a PGI product, and for the passion they bring to all of their exclusive small-batch products. We love that we can help the team bring the rich history of the Greek island of Chios into a more contemporary, dynamic present here in the States.
