Brought back by sailors who had gone out to discover the riches of the New World. The pepper which is now known as Espelette pepper is especially well adapted to this terrain nestled at the foot of the Pyrenees and near to the sea.
Now this spice which has AOC labelling is prepared according to well-defined rules regarding respect for the land, customs and the environment.
