Heliodora by Althaia

30.00 12 bottles of 33cl. The bottle costs 2.50€.

Heliodora restless waiting down the road. At the end of February her father always brought her sanguinelli oranges from the market.
With the snow-capped mountains, deep in the winter, those blood-red fruits seemed to announce the warm breeze of spring. And every year wondered how would the trees that grew so beautiful fruit.

The history of the orange trees is a long journey. They arrived in the Mediterranean from China a thousand years ago, when they gave a bitter fruit that was used as medicine and seasoning. They adapted so well to their new home that they spontaneously produced a multitude of new varieties until, in 1646, the Italian botanist Gian Battista Ferrari first described the red pigment in citrus.

The different varieties of blood oranges traveled for centuries in sailing boats and became popular throughout Europe thanks to their resistance to long trips. With the arrival of the steamer ships, the sailing time was reduced so that other varieties could be exported and little by little the blood oranges fell into oblivion.

But Heliodora never forgot them. The Mediterranean sun had reserved her gift in Altea, where she found the trees that intrigued her since childhood. Now, every February, he goes to his centenary garden with the illusion of a girl to pick up the sanguinelli oranges that are added to this Berliner weisse.

A wheat beer, brewed according to the ancient recipe in the early twentieth century was about to disappear. It is soft, refreshing and slightly acidic, with the touch of color and aroma that these very special citrus fruits provide.

Prussian tradition and Mediterranean character.
