Piment d’Espelette chilies are cultivated under exacting conditions in the Espelette region of France’s western Pyrenees. The Gorria-variety chilies are hand-picked only when at least 80% of the surface is red, for the most vibrant color and aroma. The chilies are sorted by hand, then ripen in a warm, airy place for at least 15 days before they are oven-dried and finally ground. Our deep orangey-red powder is robust, smoky, fruity and not overly piquant.
Piment d’Espelette now also comes in our special Longevity jar made of thick, durable, unique glass which blocks out damaging light that causes decay. This airtight, light-proof jar blocks out harmful air, moisture, and light, protecting our spices and preserving their freshness. Our Longevity jar not only looks beautiful and elegant, but it's also completely reusable, eco-friendly, and will last for years. All spices in the Longevity collection come in refill packs, so you only need to get the Longevity jar once for each spice and then just get the refill packs when the spice runs out, reducing waste and creating a sustainable solution for your kitchen. Longevity jar size: 2" diameter, 3.5" high.
