Lemons are a great ingredient for us as, like mint, they can taste great and are good at freshening the palate. There are many different ways to source lemon flavour, from lemon powders to artificial lemon essence. Funnily enough, we choose get ours from actual lemons.
And not just any lemons. Ours are from Sicily, which almost everyone agrees are the best of the best. We use two different varieties; the Femminello and Monachello. These are very popular varieties in the region and for good reason – the good levels of citral and their strong delicious zesty taste. We use those from the winter crop as the climate at this time means they have a superior flavour.
