Derived from the dried seed pods of the orchid, vanilla is arguably the oldest known flavouring ingredient and the second most expensive spice next to saffron, due to the extensive labour required in growing, harvesting and curing the beans. 

Cultivated in Mexico by the Totonac people, and later by the Aztecs, vanilla was introduced into Europe, in the 1520's by the Spanish conquistador, Hernan Cortez and gained exclusive favour amongst the rich and aristocratic.

3 main cultivars are grown globally, giving rise to Bourbon Madagascan, Tahitian and, the king of vanillas, Mexican, with distinct and very different flavour profiles.


Bourbon/Madagascan Vanilla

Accounting for 75% of the vanilla on the market, Bourbon Madagascan has a sweet, creamy and slightly caramellic flavour, and is perhaps the most widely accepted vanilla profile
