In order to comply with EU importation regulations, I'd suggest you try Italy or perhaps Malta.

Try http://www.melitabees.com/italian.html first.  (no connection).

The Cordovan isn't a different sub-species to Ligustica - it's a recessive trait found within Ligustica.  So - the people to speak to ARE Ligustica breeders.  They may be able to supply, or re-direct you to another breeder who can.
