Uganda Bantu Vanilla Extract - Colibri Vanille - 50ml
Uganda Bantu Vanilla Extract is produced by macerating crushed Planifolia type vanilla beans, from Timothy Pulunmy's farm, in alcohol. The out-of-the-ordinary vanilla grown by this farmer is fruitier than most Uganda beans. It also has delicate round and creamy notes of chocolate and chamomile.
Uganda is a new vanilla producing country. Like other countries in Africa, the vast majority of growers sold their green vanilla to large industrial extract producers. Nevertheless, some of them became interested in transformation. In addition to bringing them a better income, processing by the producer allows them to taste the unique identity of the Ugandan terroir. Despite a surprising smell of leather, the flavor of Bantu vanilla from Uganda remains a real pleasure.
This extract is not made from green vanilla, unlike the industrial process, because Colibri Vanille promotes artisanal processing in the country of origin, in order to help and support producers. All vanilla extracts are made from vanilla bean, ripened to perfection and painstakingly processed by hand, as it should be to obtain the highest quality extract.
