Pepper from the Kampot region of Cambodia is considered one of the finest peppers in the world, and that's how we treat it. Part of this special care includes packaging it in luxurious, locally-made glass tubes and wooden boxes that highlight its uniqueness and make it a great gift.
The glass takes care to perfectly preserve all the character of its contents, specifically the dark red peppercorns from the Kampot plantations. These are the most refined selection of the ripest red peppercorns, which are literally bursting with sweet fructose and intense fruity aroma. After harvesting, the kernels are sun-dried, giving the peppercorn skin its characteristic wrinkled texture.
The peppercorns exported to your table come from small family farms that approach pepper cultivation with integrity and traditional practices that have been used in the area for hundreds of years. We buy pepper from them under the fairest possible conditions. The kernels go through multiple inspections during the export process, ensuring that the most authentic flavour and aroma from Cambodia reach your table.
The taste and aroma in this case are incomparable to the classic pepper available in supermarkets. It is bold, rich, yet delicate and subtle. In addition, Kampot pepper is a unique pepper that you definitely won't find in a conventional store.
Thanks to the high fructose content that gives red pepper its intense fruit flavour, this pepper can be experimented with in baking or mixing drinks. It is perfect for accentuating the flavour of fish as well as light-coloured poultry meat. Compared to the classic red Kampot pepper, the dark red is much more intense. Take a look at our blog and be inspired by the recipes with Kampot red pepper, which have been compiled for us by Michelin-starred chefs.
Included in the package is a booklet The Story of the World's Best Pepper with certificates of authenticity and information about Kampot pepper.

Types of Kampot pepper
This is harvested, unripe, at the beginning of the year when the grains are green. Black colouring occurs as the corns dry in the sun.Show use
This is a champagne among peppers which has nothing to do with the white pepper you know. The white pepper you buy in shops here is just peeled unripe black pepper which tend to get musty and thus nobody likes it. The genuine white pepper is peeled from ripe red one (it is its seed) and so it gets its specific qualities for which it´s sought by top chefs all over the world – the white pepper opens up taste buds and multiplies the taste of each ingredient.Show use
Genuine red Kampot pepper is unique in the world. It is extremely rare and grows only in a few places in the world. It is harvested fully ripe at the peak of the pepper season and thanks to its long ripening it is full of fructose, which gives it a unique sweet-fruity taste. The so-called “red pepper" (which is actually pink) we can find in the Czech Republic is not pepper at all and is so incorrectly labeled. It is a Brazilian peppercorn that grows in a tree and is popular for its colour.Show use
