The story of Spice in Indonesia gave rise to the age of exploration. It reached its peak in the 1500s when spice was the mark of an ‘elite’ in Europe and was worth more than gold. During the crusades the Ottoman Empire blocked the silk roads which drove European innovation in ship building, enabling them to circumnavigate Africa and regain access to the bounty of spice that lay beyond.
Indonesia is still the Spice Islands being home to 10% of the world’s plant species, and some of the most exotic and unique spices on Earth, a distillers paradise. Now we are using the same precious spices and botanicals that launched the age of exploration in the past, to spice up our present, and craft our future.
“Indonesia is a very rich archipelago, producing pepper, nutmegs, galingale, cubebs, and cloves, and all the precious spices that can be found in the world.”
