Our Unique Box
Any true pistachio lover will know that a quick snacking session results in a pile of discarded shells. But this box not only takes care of the shell dilemma but also reflects the artisan heritage and quality of the pistachios.
A gift with a difference that fits well in hampers or any pistachio occasion.
Did you know that pistachio shells are great at keeping away slugs and pesky snails in the garden and in the winter make great kindling!
LOVELY CRUNCH, GOOD LEVEL OF SALT. PLEASING CREAMINESS ON THE FINISH, ALONG WITH SOME COMPLEXITY OF FLAVOUR.
Protected Designation of Origin
Cool dry winters and long hot summers are perfect growing conditions in this region of Greece for producing pistachios with unique qualities and characteristics.
Combined with the traditional farming methods used by our growers. Their authenticity and origin is guaranteed by the certificate of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO).
We've partnered with these dedicated farmers as they farm sustainably, constantly improving and shaping the agricultural landscape for today and future generations.
A founding ethos shared by both of us.
Why we love our precious pink pistachio nut so much
Pistachio nuts may be small but they've put up a mighty fight to get to where they are. It takes 7 years for a pistachio sapling to grow into a full fruit bearing tree and 10 years to reach maturity. But patience is rewarded and the results more than worth the wait.
A naturally sun ripened pistachio nut bursting with colour, flavour and crunch.
Their stand out simplicity delights, their blush pink colour surprises and flavour completely moreish.
As we closely follow the journey of the pistachio from the orchard through to the dry roasting and finally to the palm of your hand join us on social media and follow our blog and together we will discover where this precious pistachio nut will take us.

Pesky wasps could cause issue's for our crop- but our awesome farmers have a trick up their sleave!
Whilst insects are great for the Orchards assisting pollination, they’re also the biggest hinderance! It might come as a shock that the threat from insects starts very early in the crop cycle, in fact just weeks after pollination has happened and the pistachios are developing. The biggest threat comes from a type of pesky wasp and can cause major problems for the pistachios. Without good management the wasp can reduce production up to a staggering 90% each year. Our farmers have been growing pistachios for many many years and understand this threat and control infestation through their amazing sustainability program.
Pollination, It takes One Male and a Whole lot of Females!
