Peppermint has been used for thousands of years, the name coming from Minthe, a nymph transformed into a mint plant in Greek mythology. Giving a distinctively cooling sensation, it is used to provide high quality peppermint flavour for confectionary, beverages, pharmaceutical and oral care applications. 

The piperita crop has two harvests or cuttings during the second quarter (first cut) and the third quarter (second cut). The quality of the oil varies in some key components between these cuts.


Packaged into containers of 1kg / 5kg aluminium bottles or 25kg / 180kg steel drums.
