In the red mature pepper, you simply get an abundance of flavour.

Kampot Red Pepper in this extraordinary quality is a bit of a rarity in the pepper world. This special pepper is also called red matured pepper. This is because the pepper berries are allowed to mature on the stalk until the berry has a dark orange red colour (unlike black and green pepper, which is always picked when it is green and unripe). The Kampot pepper’s mature red berries are always hand-picked, they must be removed one by one before drying, as there is a fine line between ripeness and overripeness.

More of it all

Mill&Mortar have selected a Kampot Red Pepper, which by virtue of its flavour qualities and sorting is in a class of their own. All the essential oils in the red mature berries are fully developed and you simply get an abundance of flavour. Naturally, the distinct tantalizing heat from the pepper, but also a sweet aroma and a clear fruity flavour, which is totally unique to this red pepper berry. This special processing and sorting costs a bit more than our other peppers, but it is invaluable to all of us who love pepper.

The world’s first pepper brand

Kampot Red Pepper is grown in the Kampot region of Cambodia and its origin can be traced back to the Angkor Empire of the 13th century. Before the Cambodian revolution in the last half of the 1970s, Cambodia was known for its production of peppercorns, which for decades was considered to be among the best in the world. The areas around Kampot and Koh Kong were particularly known for their pepper production from the end of the 19th century. Unfortunately, the revolution destroyed the production and much of the knowledge that was built up over generations in the pepper growing families. We have followed NGO projects for many years, whose purpose is to restart the pepper production om Kampot and today the production has reached a volume and quality that makes it interesting to us.

What is it best suited to?

Kampot Red Pepper can be used just like black pepper but is especially suited to the dishes where the fruity sweetness has its place. For example, in desserts, sauces with cream or simply freshly ground in food.
