About Us

Tipico is a small business based in Edinburgh that brings the traditional Italian confectionery torrone all the way from Sicily to Scotland.

Torrone is an exquisite nougat and almond brittle, produced by the same method for generations. The finest Sicilian almonds are expertly blended with molten sugar and cooled on marble slabs to produce a uniquely sweet, crunchy treat. Michele Russo has been making torrone in this way since the age of 11 as part of his family business, I torroni di Pietrorossa. Now Michele is pleased to bring all his expertise, developed over more than 20 years, to his adopted home of Edinburgh.
