Olivier Rœllinger's words

Harvested when the peppercorns are fully ripe and red, Kampot Red Pepper is an exceptional spice that will surprise pepper connaisseurs. It's a dessert pepper with caramel, vanilla, and honey flavor notes.

Grind Red Kampot Pepper over applesauce, pear compote, and fruit tarts, or fold it into a chocolate mousse or vanilla ice cream. This red pepper is excellent also with vegetables and legumes.

Story

Cambodia's pepper growing heritage is more recent than that of India, the birthplace of pepper spices.
References to pepper cultivation in Cambodia date to the 18th century. By the end of the 19th century, the Kampot region of the country had become a major pepper producer to meet Western demand.
The land in Kampot's maritime location makes it ideal for pepper production with its bright sunshine and sea breezes.

We have chosen to collaborate with two small plantations in Kampot. Both have Protected Geographic Indication (PGI) status which ensures they follow specific harvesting and production guidelines.
