Heritage in itself

Saffron provides the magnificent Crocus Sativus flower, which is one of the most luxurious products and researches in the world of gastronomy and food. At the heart of Persian culture for over 4,000 years, it echoes the grandeur of Ancient Persia where it was used as royal ink for the Shah, artistic pigment for painting and, of course, as a culinary spice. Historical writings also testify to its use in traditional medicine in itself to soothe pain, for its cosmetic virtues and its aphrodisiac power.

The quantity of flowers needed to produce 1g of this saffron is 150 to 200 Crocus Sativus flowers, highlighting the exclusivity and preciousness of this spice even more. This flower is carefully picked by hand to extract its precious pistils, one can imagine the degree of work and precision required to reduce such a quality of saffron.

Thanks to the work of our experts on site, we have evaluated each variety according to rigorous criteria and analyzes in Switzerland to define the best saffron:

  • pistil length
