Our vanilla comes from northeastern Madagascar, from a project that works directly with small-scale farmers to ensure they get the best price for their crop, as well as providing wider community-based education.
Our saffron currently comes from Spain, at the Western end of the natural habitat range of Crocus sativus. The vivid crimson threads from the flower are collected by hand, dried and used to give colour, aroma and a unique flavour to Everleaf.
Our vetiver is sourced from a project in Haiti that works with communities to protect their livelihoods through reforestation, food security and the empowerment of local women.
Orris root (from Iris pallida) has strong family connections - Brian Mathew studied it extensively, publishing “The Iris” in 1981. It contributes earthy flavours and notes of violet, as well as helping the other botanicals work together in harmony.
Angelica is commonly used in gins, liqueurs and (if you hadn’t already guessed) aperitifs, giving an earthy, bittersweet, slightly musky flavour. It also helps to bind the other flavours together, making for a deliciously complex, elegant and balanced aperitif.
From SE Asia, the bark of Cinnamomum cassia adds a warmth, spice and some sweetness to the mid-palate of Everleaf. The bark is harvested every few years and does not kill the tree, making this a very sustainable spice.
Voodoo Lily, Amorphophallus konjac, is an arum with a huge flower and big tuber that grows across China and Japan. We use an extract from the tuber to give texture and mouthfeel to Everleaf.
