The "Gran Cru" bars of Torrone were born after meticulous research of the best raw materials and a long series of tests. We studied and drew inspiration from the different cultures and philosophies of artisan torrone production. This type is the most exotic, clearly inspired by the Sicilian torrone and thus using all raw materials from the region, in particular, Bronte pistachios.
Pistachio trees were brought in by the arabs, and Bronte pistachios have been an essential ingredient in many Sicilian desserts ever since - the only place in the country where they're actually grown. Its namesake, the city of Bronte, is perched at the top of slope of volcanic rock which is about half a mile northeast of Etna.
This nougat consists of 60% Bronte pistachios with Etna orange honey and a sprinkling of Sicilian orange skin peel, all flavoured with a little essential lemon oil and natural vanilla from Madagascar.
