Exceptionally large corns, extremely dense and perfumed. Suave and sweet notes evoking brioche, coffee and cocoa with a peak of camphor and eucalyptus. Woody, slightly liquorice notes. Resinous, slightly caramelised turpentine notes. You will find subtle touches of tomatoes and dried peppers.

These peppers are grown and harvested in a plantation in the Western Ghats, the mountains which dominate the Malabar Coast in the south-west of India.
The lianas in the plantations grow on living supports - areca and ylang-ylang trees and coconut palms in an environment where nature rules. Broken branches and leaves are left on the ground to retain moisture and regenerate the soil. There are no chemicals used - fertilisers are natural and pesticides are prohibited.
The corns are dried naturally in the sun and then meticulously sorted so only the best are kept.
KAPPAD BLACK GOLD black pepper
We requested a selection of the largest peppercorns from the tonnes collected annually – only the very best. By keeping only the densest corns, only a few hundred kilos are obtained annually. This very rare black pepper was named "KAPPAD," as a tribute to Vasco de Gama. Kappad Beach is the name of the beach on which he landed in 1498, exclaiming "for God and spices".
