Steam distillation
Nutmeg is used extensively in the traditional cuisine of many countries for its characteristic flavor. Although nutmeg is cultivated in many countries, the oil we use mostly comes from Indonesia. Nutmeg oil is produced by steam distillation of the freshly comminuted dried seeds of Myristica fragrans. The high content of terpenes in the oil makes top notes unpleasant. For this reason, we decided to remove part of these terpenes in order to obtain a nutmeg with a clean, exciting, spicy and warm aroma. The solubility of the Nutmeg oil, rectified, is considerably better than that of conventional oils.
