After quite a long 3-1/2 Year wait, and receiving many samples during that time, none measured up - until now. Although we were pressed by customers to re-stock even a low 12% vanillin, we declined all samples and waited for things to turn around in the vanilla market. We didn't want to stock anything other than what we had previously from Madagascar only. Although the price of vanilla has skyrocketed it is starting to stabilize but only slightly for lower vanillin percentage extracts. It just made no sense to source a lower quality from Uganda, who saw fit to raise prices because of Madagascar's inability to produce high quality Vanilla Bourbon CO2 at 26% vanillin due to crop failures and weather related issues. We are now very excited to have finally sourced a 'true' Vanilla Bourbon CO2 in limited quantity. We can not offer free samples with orders, please do not ask because we will have to say no.
This organic Vanilla Bourbon Co2 Total extract contains 26% vanillin! Organic Madagascar vanilla beans artfully extracted has an aroma not just sweet, but possesses a sensual, warm and aphrodisiac side with depth rarely encountered with other specimens of vanilla. Without a doubt the most superior vanilla we have had the pleasure of sampling!
This extract can become solid to semi-solid in cold temperature and requires warming to liquefy.
