Pure Bergamot Extract, Natural
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) is a small citrus fruit, which grows primarily in Southern Italy. The fruit from this cross of a Seville orange and pear lemon is sour and not edible. Bergamot is grown for its essential oil, which is contained in the peel. The oil is used in Earl Grey tea and many popular fragrances. Bergamot is unrelated to the herb of the same name. In most alcoholic beverages, we recommend a starting use level of 0.10% to 0.30% and adjust to desired impact is achieved. In high proof spirits start at 0.75%. This flavor is TTB approved. While bergamot has a beautiful aroma and is perfectly safe when consumed as a flavor, we do not recommend you apply the extract to the skin. The Bergamot oil used to make the extract has been linked to photo sensitivity in some people and can cause a skin rash.
