Provenance alone accounts for the uniqueness of every tom hugh peppercorn. Our Sri Lankan peppercorns are grown in the cool, unhurried hills surrounding Kandy.
We can even tell you the precise garden they came from and just for good measure, the names of the farmer, his wife and the kids who grew them!
TOM HUGH INTENSE BLACK SRI LANKAN

TOM HUGH SPICY WHITE SRI LANKAN

We envy the farmers who grow our peppercorns. Why? Because they spend their days working in peaceful, serene, lush gardens growing things like cardamon, cinnamon, peppercorns, vanilla, tea and coffee all in the one garden! No phones, no email, no clocks, just the sun, the rain and the sense that the world is just as it should be.

Unforgettable on a sizzling piece of grass fed marbled beef, on charcoal roasted free range chicken or on top a succulent piece of blue eyed cod from the cool ocean waters.
Memorable in pink meringues, sprinkled liberally over fresh plantation pineapple, with plump organic strawberries or infused in flavored ice creams and sorbets.
Perky in a traditional party punch, absolutely essential in Sunday morning bloody mary’s and a must in “my name is Bond..Hugh Bond” martini’s.... shaken of course not stirred.
Sensational on just carved, wafer thin prosciutto, straight from the oven farmhouse chicken and wild mushroom pies and on juicy tiger prawn cocktails on a hot summers day.
Dreamy in béchamel sauce for cauliflower cheese, lasagna, mac and cheese and fish pies, on scrambled eggs and in smoked salmon and potato frittatas.
Arousing in ice cold watermelon campari’s, in Brazilian caipirinha’s infused with basil “pra caramba”, when cracked over gold tequila or sprinkled on Christmas eggnog’s. Also brilliant as a substitute to salt on cocktail glass rims.
tom hugh Hands is a vehicle (think an all terrain, three on the tree, brightly colored bus with moo seats and fast glass windows) by which we can do the really important things in life.
You know, like giving our money to those that need it more than us, sharing our stuff with those that have nothing, grabbing a hand when it reaches out, taking only what we need to leave enough for others, supporting those who are falling, teaching those who can’t afford to learn and inspiring the hesitant to achieve things they never thought possible!
Get the point? Now take the test!
Our hands are important to us because?
[a] We can pat ourselves on the back for what bloody great blokes we are?
[b] We can throw chemicals on the gardens that grow our peppercorns and make everybody sick?
[c] They come in really handy when we’ve got the wobbly boots on?
[d] We can drop a few measly coins in our farmers pockets and keep all the money we make for ourselves?
[e] They help us share what we have with others?
Answer: Seriously... you're checking!
