4 SPICE BLEND AND ITS HISTORY

The 4 Spice Blend has its roots in culinary history, dating back to a time when Jamaica berry, also called “allspice” in English, was the star. This unique berry, with its aromas reminiscent of a bouquet of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper, was an aromatic treasure. However, its limited availability has led to the creation of an accessible blend for everyday use.  

In the Middle Ages, this mixture was already popular for marinating game meats and poultry, as well as for concocting liqueurs. Over time, it has become firmly anchored in European culinary tradition, where it continues to enrich our dishes with its deep flavors and spicy heat. Today, the  4 Spice Blend  is a living legacy of this history, a pillar of gastronomy that crosses centuries and borders to awaken our senses and our taste memories.
