    Product Information

    Segginao Organic Buckwheat Digestive Biscuits, 150g. Deliciously simple. Handmade by family bakery in Puglia, Seggiano stoneground wholegrain Buckwheat Digestives are a source of fibre, iron and phosphorus. To live up to the name digestive, these biscuits use quality cold pressed oil and are both yeast and dairy free. Enjoy our typical Italian breakfast biscuit with both sweet and savoury toppings.

    Seggiano Organic soft liquorice swirls.

    Seggiano Large Traditional Torrone - Carmelo’s family have made torrone in Avellino, Campania, as far back as anyone can remember; he and his daughters use a mixing method which makes the torrone super light and clean on the palate - as the best classic torrone must be. Production starts with the Italian almond harvest and only first grade fresh Italian almonds will do. The honey from an Avellino beekeeper is organic and Carmelo uses free range eggs. 

    Seggiano cantuccini biscotti - crunchy almond biscuits, which Italians traditionally enjoy dipped in Vin Santo after a meal. They are hand shaped into loaves which are baked and slice while still hot.

    Seggiano Soft Almond Biscuits - The Marini family have perfected their Amaretti biscuit recipe over three generations. They prepare the almond dough themselves in their bakery, by freshly grinding current harvest nuts, using the classic, slightly bitter Prunus Amara almond variety, as the tradition of the true amaretto biscuit demands.

    Seggiano Chocolate Clementines - Calabria is famous for the quality and sweetness of its citrus fruits. These typical Calabrian candied clementine chocolates are produced for Seggiano by the Garritano family, who have been making traditional fruit dolcetti for over a century in their small cioccolateria in Cosenza. Whole clementines are candied, using the traditional slow process of preserving fruits in sugar, then halved and covered in dark chocolate to make these simple dolcetti. The hint of bitter zest, sweet citrus and 72% dark chocolate combine divinely. Calabrian candied clementines dipped in dark chocolate.

    Hand Picked, Hand Wrapped and Hand Packed. They  will be beautifully packaged in one of our high quality, white boxes with white grosgrain ribbon to seal it shut. Authentic Blue Star tissue, black grosgrain ribbon, and one of our gift tags, handwritten with a personal message of your choice to the recipient.  Our signature Tin of BSHCo Star Mints is also included.
