Salt and pepper are a staple of kitchen equipment in perhaps every corner of the world. However, few people can find the quality of pepper and salt that is housed in this wooden box. The large 160 gram jar contains the perfect virgin salt flower from Kampot, which we have complemented with three king-size tubes containing the finest Kampot pepper.
The first of these contains black pepper, also known as the black gold of Kampot. The sun-dried dark grains are an invaluable aid in the preparation of dark meats, sauces, soups or pasta.
The second tube holds white peppercorns, known as the champagne of peppers, which will completely change your mind about the taste of peppercorns. White pepper delivers a subtle yet intense flavour experience that pairs well with light meats and dishes with a creamy base.
The last tube offers a red whirlwind of the most exotic pepper flavours. Red pepper completely defies everything you've ever known about the taste of pepper. Who would have thought that red pepper is great in desserts or mixed drinks?
The peppercorns exported to your table come from small family farms that approach pepper cultivation with integrity and traditional practices that have been used in the area for hundreds of years. We buy pepper from them under the fairest possible conditions. The kernels go through multiple inspections during the export process, ensuring that the most authentic flavour and aroma from Cambodia reach your table.
The taste and aroma in this case are incomparable to the classic pepper available in supermarkets. It is bold, rich, yet delicate and subtle. In addition, Kampot pepper is a unique pepper that you definitely won't find in a conventional store.
The salt in the packet is a salt flower obtained by carefully hand-picking the salt crystallized on the surface of so-called salinas, special pools of water, in which the sun can rest undisturbed on the surface and pull the salt out of the water with its power. It is perfectly pure salt, without any additives or contaminants.
This salt is extracted using traditional practices that have been in place for hundreds of years, bringing another authentic product to your table that will transport you to far off Asia. You will find that your food will taste a little more exotic with this salt.

Types of Kampot pepper
This is harvested, unripe, at the beginning of the year when the grains are green. Black colouring occurs as the corns dry in the sun.Show use
This is a champagne among peppers which has nothing to do with the white pepper you know. The white pepper you buy in shops here is just peeled unripe black pepper which tend to get musty and thus nobody likes it. The genuine white pepper is peeled from ripe red one (it is its seed) and so it gets its specific qualities for which it´s sought by top chefs all over the world – the white pepper opens up taste buds and multiplies the taste of each ingredient.Show use
Genuine red Kampot pepper is unique in the world. It is extremely rare and grows only in a few places in the world. It is harvested fully ripe at the peak of the pepper season and thanks to its long ripening it is full of fructose, which gives it a unique sweet-fruity taste. The so-called “red pepper" (which is actually pink) we can find in the Czech Republic is not pepper at all and is so incorrectly labeled. It is a Brazilian peppercorn that grows in a tree and is popular for its colour.Show use
