Our coconuts are completely full to the brim with water, so please keep them upright when opening.

We grow Kaffir Lime leaves as a botanical for our gin, but needed more than we can provide for a special order. These frozen leaves are ideal - still full of flavour and really fresh....!

Tried Essence of Thailand because I couldn't get my sushi rice from my usual store. The rice I got from here was better quality and cheaper in price. I am well pleased with my purchase and the service received.
