More info

History: The name bergamot originated from the Italian city of Bergamot in Lombardy. It is said that this tree was discovered by Christopher Columbus and he introduced it to Spain and Italy, but this is not likely. The first Italian record of its use was in 1725.

Characteristics: The aroma is basically citrus, yet fruity and sweet with a warm spicy floral quality, and is reminiscent of Neroli, giving a middle note of medium strength.
