Not a seed, fruit or bark - it’s a flower bud, plucked from an Indonesian tree and dried under the tropical sun. Native to the Spice Islands, Clove has been sought after and fought over after since the 3rd century BC.
The tree changes from pale gold to pink to green and the buds must be harvested the precise moment they turn light pink. The primary flavour compound Eugenol is also used as a dental anaesthetic due to is numbing and analgesic effects (that distinctive dental office aroma!)
A uniquely aromatic spicy flavour, clove intensifies vanilla and adds complexity to citrus… playing a lead role in CARGO CULT Spiced Rum.
