We have selected the highest quality and most aromatic vanilla in the whole world, the Bourbon variety from Madagascar. This was selected to ensure we could satisfy the taste buds of even the most discerned ice cream connoisseurs. Did you know that vanilla is a breed of orchid? It has been known and honored by the Aztecs, who prepared a special drink out of it – a mixture of cocoa beans, vanilla and honey. During the XVI century, the Spaniards brought vanilla along with cocoa to Europe. The lengthy process of picking, selecting and processing vanilla pods includes a lot of manual labour. That is why nowadays it is the second most expensive spice (after saffron) and its extract is added to some of the priciest creations of notorious perfumery houses.
