Only one place on earth is capable of producing this Basque Country tradition: Espelette chili powder. A group of eleven villages in the Basque Country are the unique cradle of these one-of-a-kind sweet-hot chili peppers.

Celebrated and adored in an annual October festival, the Espelette chili pepper from the Basque Country possesses the distinguished guarantee of origin (AOC), which means no substitutes! A sound, proven tradition, know-how and a warm, humid climate all come together in the Basque CountryEspelette Chili. Every element of the unique terroir—the French word for a felicitous combination of the shape, lay and mineral composition of the land in collaboration with its particular climatic conditions—conspires together, each essential to the particular and astonishing flavor of the inimitable Espelette chili.

To become a producer of AOC Espelette chili, growers like Ferme Fagaldia, the producer of this powder, must earn official certification for their growing conditions, and a jury of qualified tasters certifies and approves samples of fresh chilis and rigorously oversees the quality of the chili powder.

Espelette chilis are hand harvested, cleaned, sorted and graded from August through November, as they reach maturity. Espelette Chili Pepper Powder is, of course, indispensable in Basque Country cooking, but can also replace black pepper, as a finishing touch to turn up the volume and personality of your dishes, especially meat, vegetables, fish and seafood. With an original, lingering taste, this 100 percent AOC Espelette Chili Pepper Powder brings character to traditional or modern delicacies alike.
