Vinh Linh Black Pepper
Vinh Linh Pepper is a hidden gem in one of the world's largest pepper-producing countries. In a market where farmers are always looking for bigger peppercorns and higher yields on their harvest, this pepper stands out. The corns are smaller, the taste intense and the heat explosive. The cultivation of Vinh Linh Pepper goes back over 300 years because of its popularity amongst the royal families of the Nguyễn dynasty, ruling much of southern Vietnam from the 17th to 19th century. The pepper also features in many dishes from the distinct Hue cuisine where the spice is heavily used unlike many other areas of Vietnam.
