Source

Extraction Method

Pepper essence is obtained through steam distillation of the ripe fruit. The spice is composed of black pepper (the whole fruit is picked before reaching complete maturity), white pepper (the pericarp is removed from the ripe fruit) and green pepper (the fruit is picked before maturity to prevent it from turning black.) Pink pepper comes from the schinus molle, a tree that grows in Central America, Brazil, and a few islands in the Indian Ocean. However, it is not considered real pepper. Other so-called pepper trees are grown in China.

Use

Pepper essence is used to alter fine perfumes.
