Frutto del Garda on display at Grand Hotel
Grand Hotel Gardone opens its space to the typical productions of the territory: it’s happening in the halls of our à la carte restaurant Giardino dei Limoni, where we have staged a showcase of the exquisite products signed by Frutto del Garda, a small company of great excellence which grows organic citrus fruits and trasforms them into jams, liqueurs and other goodies. Located not surprisingly in Limone, Frutto del Garda is a sort of splendid garden where grow 49 different species of citrus, including cedar, lemon, orange, bergamot, bitter oranges, limes, grapefruits. Hence comes a range of very interesting references, all strictly handmade and organic such as jams, in which citrus fruits are “softened” by the presence of apple or pear, or liqueurs such as Limoncello and Double Cedar or the Spirit of Bitter Orange, or a wonderful elderberry syrup, to be tasted with red fruits in general. All typical products that remind us how Lake Garda is the northernmost place in the world where it is still possible to cultivate typical Mediterranean fruits like lemons and oranges for the note, or as capers and olives.
