The flavour of the peppercorns is simply outstanding – like a happy little explosion in the mouth – vibrant, distinctly fragrant and full of flavour. Spicy, floral, a little citrus and sweetly herbaceous. The beautiful flavour pleases the mouth for ages and enhances the flavour of companion ingredients.
Friend & Burrell distributes the pepper sourced by Kampot Pepper Traders, entirely grown and produced by leading Cambodian farmer Anna Him at Starling Farm. It’s literally the cream of the Kampot crop, every peppercorn being single estate and single harvest preserving the integrity and consistency of the pepper.
Between the sea and the mountains on Cambodia’s south eastern coastline lies the province of Kampot. It’s here that pepper plantations thrive in ideal growing conditions. The ancient red soil, rich in quartz and other minerals, joins with (usually) abundant rainfall and sunshine and producers’ traditional, natural farming methods to nourish the piper nigrum vines producing the world’s most exceptional pepper.
