When our black pepper is smoked, its familiar piney heat generated by the chemical compound piperine remains an up-front focus, but then it moves over to make room for an altered flavor profile. After the spicy pine, the flavors of smoky sweet bourbon and oak move in, digging deeper into pepper’s woody aspects. Next the citrusy brightness emerges in a spry bloom of flavor, then fades back to lingering pine heat as the finishing flavor. Bourbon and smoke dominate the aromatics, though it doesn’t take long for the citrus of the volatile oils to cut a clean path through the fragrance. This is a coarse, 20-mesh grind that is good for the preservation of the volatile oil content, which is 1-2.5% by weight. We chose the coarse grind specifically for this product. The larger grind pepper acts as a storehouse for volatile oils, giving them plenty of nooks and crannies to adhere to. This permits the pepper to retain its potency and freshness.

This is a product of the cold-smoking process, a thousand year old method of preservation that allows Master Smokers to protect food from spoilage. By keeping food in one chamber and the heat source in another, any generated smoke has the opportunity to cool before it reaches the target food. To make our Bourbon Barrel Smoked Pepper, coarse pepper is spread on a baking tray and smoked for 10 hours. Our pepper is infused with flavor without cooking it. Our Bourbon Barrel Smoked Pepper is infused with smoke from spent barrels used to age bourbon, in a professional smokehouse in the midwest.


Tips From Our Kitchen


We love Bourbon Barrel Smoked Pepper seared onto steak, and onto heartier meats like lamb or venison. Add it to rustic mashed potatoes for amazing flavor and texture. Dust over chicken wings for a knockout flavor. Roll a log of goat cheese in Bourbon Barrel Smoked Pepper for a fantastic holiday appetizer. Culinary craft cocktailers can infuse this into a tincture for peppery drinks with a bang that stands out.

Our Black Peppercorns are sourced from India, Indonesia, or Vietnam, depending on the time of year and availability. They are smoked in Kansas.

Barrel of flavor A wonderful robust flavor of smoked pepper and a hint of bourbon. If you enjoy Ribs, Rib- Eye Steaks, Cornish Hens, or Wings you’ll enjoy this in a good bbq sauce or skip the regular pepper and use the bourbon smoked pepper!

Best smoked peppercorns EVER I use this in my daily cooking and it is the vest taste! The best price! The quickest shipping. I just received my 5 LB bag and I’m ordering another 5 lbs so I don’t run out. I never heard of the spice company before I ordered the black pepper and now I will NEVER order from any where else!!
