Varietal Ginger
Flavour Intense and full of spice

On the hunt for a powerful and pungent variety of ginger, we found ourselves deep in the Amazon rainforest at the heart of Peru. There, we discovered exactly what we were looking for: a rich source of golden Peruvian ginger.

Intensely flavoured, and full of spice, this ginger grows in abundance near the tiny village of Ashanika, where the steamy rainforest creates an ideal growing environment. Local farmers understand the importance of the lush vegetation that surrounds their crops, feeding back into the soil. They use traditional farming methods and regular crop rotation to protect the natural environment and produce a ginger that is as flavoursome today as it ever was.

Our Indonesian ginger grows on the island of Java, one of the best ginger growing regions in the world. With its rich, volcanic soil, intense humidity, and lush vegetation, Java is home to a unique ginger-growing industry.

Our Indonesian farmers grow and harvest premium-quality ginger while maintaining the integrity of the natural environment through small-scale farming practices. Our Arjuna ginger comes from the lower slopes of the Arjuna volcano, where our farming partners cultivate small hands of Sparrow Ginger long into the growing season, yielding the intense heat for which this variety of ginger is so well-known.
