Kampot Pepper, grown only in the Kampot region of Cambodia, was once the world's most prestigious peppercorn, celebrated in the gourmet kitchens of France for its complex aroma and nuanced flavors. Our peppercorns are grown on a small family-owned farm, nestled against the hills of a beautiful valley in Cambodia's Kampot province.
The delicate characteristics of Kampot peppers come from the mildness in their spice, the freshness and complexity of their aromas and their exceptional lingering taste.
Our peppers are proudly grown using traditional chemical-free Cambodian farming practices.

Kampot black pepper delivers a strong and delicate aroma. Its taste, which can range from intensely spicy to mildly sweet, reveals hints of flower, eucalyptus and mint. This black pepper suits all kind of dishes and distinguishes itself in particular with grilled fish or beef steak.
Aromatic at a distance. Well-rounded flavor offers heat but surprises with a sweet finish. Think steak.
Harvested from the vine, when the berry is fully mature, Kampot red pepper delivers a powerful and fruity aroma. Its taste combines the spicy, mature flavor of black pepper with a sugary sweetness.
An initial pepper flavor followed by a tangy floral aromatic finish and a punch of heat. Excellent on chicken or crush and sprinkle on vanilla ice cream.
