Discover Mercator Tripel

In the Golden Age, the discovery of new herbs was of great importance. Gerardus Mercator was able to map all continents in the 16th century through his search for the best beer spices. In China, he was surprised by the tingling effect of Szechuan pepper. In West Africa, he saw seeds of paradise growing in the Garden of Eden with the unique scent of hazelnut and mandarin.

Szechuan pepper from China:
Did you know that Szechuan pepper is actually not a real pepper at all. It is the dried peel of the fruit of a kind of citrus plant and therefore has a light lemon flavor. It is not very spicy but does create a short tingling and numbing effect when touched with the tongue.

Paradise seed from West Africa:
Did you know that spice traders in the Middle Ages sold Paradise seeds as an affordable alternative to the then very expensive black pepper. They told European buyers that the seeds grew in the Garden of Eden and floated from paradise to the markets through the rivers.
