Why it’s so delicious?

Calabria and the Vecchio Magazzino Doganale were my life. Every day was like the first, we were taken by that job that we loved more than anything else. We looked passionately at Giocondo, who had an intuition for everything in his trade, a man of few words and a master of life. The botanicals in his hands expressed extraordinary and sometimes unthinkable things. The bergamot and cedar harvesting period was a sacred moment for him who was certainly hiding secrets. Jefferson was the most curious. He always tried to follow him, most of the time secretly, to try to understand what was the secret to producing such a natural and unique bergamot and citron liqueur. We left, even before dawn, with his drawn cart and its empty baskets to reach that magical place, even further south of the Vecchio Magazzino Doganale, four, maybe five hours away. Once we arrived, I was struck by the scents that were felt in that wonderful garden, something unique and magical. Giocondo with great patience and control began to collect one by one the fruits that were sacred to him, he had a profound respect for the place where he was. Once finished we left for home, strangely I had the impression that it took much less than the outward journey, perhaps it was because of the desire to make a dream come true. Once they arrived, Giocondo wasted no time in starting the work. I still remember his hands rough and full of essences of those wonderful fruits. He completed the work by bringing everything into his "Dark Room", no one could enter there. He always repeated: "Silence!". I always thought there was something secret and mysterious there. I hope that those lucky enough to taste this liqueur do not seek explanations or mathematical formulas, but experience the passion, emotions and sacrifices of those who work every day in the land to create it.

Products created by the skill of Maestro Giocondo, owner of the Vecchio Magazzino Doganale and expert in fruits, herbs and spices, but above all the adoptive father and guide of our characters. From his rough hands come Bergamotto Fantastico, from a careful selection of the symbolic fruits of Calabria: the bergamot.
They enhance their character served cold and original in mixing.
