The Aromas of Espelette Pepper

Originating from the French Basque Country, this pepper offers a mild, fruity flavor with notes of dried tomato and hay. Unlike hotter peppers, Espelette pepper has a moderate heat that allows its distinct aromas to fully shine.

Espelette, the Pepper Village

Espelette pepper is named after the picturesque village of Espelette, located at the foot of the Basque mountains. Although it is now an emblem of Basque cuisine, it was brought from South America by Christopher Columbus in the 15th century. Since then, it has become an essential regional specialty, protected by a protected designation of origin (PDO) that guarantees its quality and authenticity.

The Botanical Origin of Espelette Pepper

Introduced to Europe in the 16th century by Spanish explorers, it found an ideal terroir in the commune of Espelette, benefiting from a mild, oceanic climate. This specific variety of pepper is cultivated according to strict traditional methods to preserve its quality and protected designation of origin (PDO).
