Spicery is an ancient word literally meaning a place where spices are produced or stored. In the Age of Exploration, traders would talk of sailing to the Spiceries meaning the Spice Islands of Indonesia, Sri Lanka and the coasts of India where spices were originally grown. Back in Europe many grand houses had their own Spicery which was a separate office where the spices and the most valuable ingredients for the kitchens were stored.

 

It may be an old word but we're aiming to give it a bit of an update. All the colours we use in our packaging represent those same colours you see in the buildings as you travel around the spice-producing countries - all those vivid blues, reds and yellows all painted on uncoated walls. We aim to capture some of that colour and vibrancy and produce products that make using spices easy, accessible and enjoyable in our modern kitchens. Centuries ago everyone knew that spices came from the Spicery, now we can all remember it again!
