Real peppercorns Back
An olfactory examination reveals surprising warm notes, spontaneously evoking gingerbread. This is followed by an exceptional aromatic procession of dried tomatoes, mild tobacco and saffron, liquorice, a floral element of old roses, spicy notes with peaks of cloves and cinnamon and a vegetable freshness evoking the bell pepper. It is therefore a very rich pepper on an olfactory level, very seductive. But beware - behind this warm, gourmand nose, a decidedly spicy pepper is waiting. It fits perfectly with red meats, lamb, duck, terrines, casseroles, tuna and oily fish...

Pepper from Cambodia, from the Kampot region, was highly renowned before the Khmer Rouge took over the country. A few years ago, in 2004, a Frenchman decided to unite the farmers who had a few pepper vines to restart production in the region.
We opt for high quality production, with numerous selective sorting sessions, on the plant, after harvest, before drying and after drying. The exemplary work that he has carried out with the producers means that today we are able to propose one of the world's best peppers.
Despite the extremely high overall quality of pepper in the area, we make stricter selection to obtain just a few kilograms of exceptional corns per harvest.
In this plantation there is not a single gram of pesticide or chemical fertiliser. Everything is natural. The fertiliser used is made of a mixture of rice paddy crabs and grass. New soil is regularly added and watering is done manually, which calls for enormous effort. To do such a hard job, you need to be passionately in love with your land and its products.
