Welcome to Aneityum
Grown on the southern islands of the Vanuatu archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean, these Vanuatu vanilla beans are extremely rare and are a true treasure. These dark, fleshy pods are full of seeds and their length varies between 16 and 22 cm. These Grade A gourmet Vanuatu vanilla beans are long and slender and have a high oil and water content of 30-35%. Vanuatu supplies creamy, sweet vanilla with a main note of floral and a heart note of Cinnamon Zeylanicum, Sandalwood, Raw cocoa and Yellow fruits. Vanuatu vanilla beans come from the Planifolia variety like Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar.

Wonderful beans, so glad I made this purchase. These will definitely become part of my private stock of extract. Beans are super fragrant and look superb. Now just have to decide on rum or contact!
Exceptional beans! Very fast shipping, great packaging and the beans were perfect!
Just received these and what can I say, beautiful! These beans have a creamy, powerful vanilla aroma with floral notes and notes of cinnamon, sandalwood, and raw cocoa. There are subtle notes of nutmeg and ginger. I have half extracting in Everclear/distilled water and half in white and gold rum mixed. Already smelling fantastic.
These vanilla beans have a good flavor. I have used them in "vanilla forward" items and they perform well. They are moist and flexible if a bit thin. While I am sure that all the beans meet grad standards I found a lot of variation in bean length.
All in all worth my purchase.
