Vanilla Pompona, also known as vanillon or banana vanilla, develops an incomparable aromatic palette with singular notes of anis and maraschino for the Finga (exceptional with meat & fishes) while Stella (desserts, alcools and rums) is defined by very pronounced liquorice, coumarin, fresh tobacco leaf and wood notes with buttery and floral flavour in the background. These two varieties of pompona are grown in the Guyanese region of Saint Laurent du Maroni under the canopy of the tropical rainforest. It's a limited production, mostly allocated to Chefs and Perfumers for their exclusive creations.
