Allspice is the dried berry of a beautiful evergreen tree, and one of the few classic spices indigenous to the new world. Used widely in Caribbean and Mexican cuisines, its characteristic combination of sugar and spice is a key element of jerk chicken, mole sauces and many other dishes.
Our sweet allspice has a characteristic smoky warmth, reminiscent of toasted almonds and baked fruit. It’s a perfect addition to spiced holiday desserts like pumpkin or apple pie; it adds depth and complexity to beverages like cocktails, chai masala or hot chocolate; and it even works well with meat dishes like chili, bolognese or curries.

We get our sweet, rich allspice in micro-lots from the cloud forests of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. Our allspice is hand-harvested every October and November and dried. They’re grown on small plots in the cloud forests, where the altitude, high humidity and comparatively low temperatures create ideal conditions for beautiful allspice berries.
Burlap & Barrel hands down the best spices money can buy. Elevates the flavour of any dish.
Each magical bottle of spices I’ve bought from B&B is always SO good - the perfect flavor for whatever recipe or dish it’s called for!
Love all the spices
This allspice is fantastic. It has much more aroma and flavor compared to anything that I've purchased in the grocery store. So happy that I bought this.
Flavor of this is soooo much better than the store brands. Adds a great dimension to my morning oatmeal. Love this!
