*We're currently all sold out of our Wild Pompona Vanilla! Check out our brand new Nyanza Vanilla*

Pompona Vanilla is an extremely rare species of vanilla, and ours is wild-harvested in the Peruvian Amazon. You've never had vanilla like this before.

The DIY Vanilla Extract Kit contains chopped-up, vine-ripened split pods, perfect for making your own vanilla extract. We have 10 grams of chopped vanilla and room to add 100ml of your favorite spirit.

Fill the jar with the vodka, whiskey or rum and let it infuse for at least two weeks, but as long as you'd like. Top off frequently, and use as you'd use any other vanilla extract.

  • Origin: Moyobamba, Peruvian Amazon
  • Process: Sun-dried during the day, cured in wooden boxes overnight
  • Ingredients: 100% Vanilla pompona pods
  • Tasting notes: Dried Cherry  • Chocolate • Dark Rum

COOKING

SOURCING

If a regular vanilla pod is like a string bean, Pompona Vanilla is like a sugar snap - bigger, fatter, sweeter and fuller of flavor.

These incredibly rare, wild (literally and figuratively) pods come from the Peruvian Amazon. Wild vanilla is virtually unheard of, and impossible outside of vanilla's native range (from Mexico to northern South America).

Vanilla orchids are only pollinated by a couple of species of bee, which only live in the Americas. All commercial Vanilla planifolia (most of which is grown in Madagascar) has to be hand-pollinated by the farmer once per year when the flowers bloom for just 3-5 hours

Pompona Vanilla is pollinated by a single species called the dilemma orchid bee (amazing), and is then either picked green and cured by hand by 3 foragers over about 6 weeks, or ripened and split on the vine.

Received my order today. Plump, moist, aromatic. I must admit, I chewed on a piece and it reminds me of a dark cherry with undertones of dark chocolate perhaps or an aged burgundy?...but much much better.
