WHY BUY OUR VANILLA PODS ?

Split vanilla pods with seeds 3

Our vanilla pods have a lovely rich well rounded vanilla flavour

Achieving the perfect bourbon vanilla flavour is down to two things: how long vanilla beans are left on the vine, and vanilla curing. All our vanilla pods are cured to a superbly high standard.

"Vanilla beans picked too early don't develop the full vanillin content and can never achieve a real bourbon aroma.

Our vanilla pods retain their flavour until used

Good quality vanilla should be shiny, slightly moist and pliable. Vacuum packing ensures our vanilla pods retain their lovely rich flavour and appearance for a mininum of 2 years if unopened.

"Vanilla pods dry out quickly, and lose their flavour if exposed to air.
Many suppliers supply vanilla pods loose."

Our vanilla pods have optimum moisture content

Our vanilla pods contain 28-32% moisture. This is the optimum level for flavour and appearance.

"Vanilla pods with too much moisture are prone to develop mould. Too little and they lose their flavour quickly."
