Whole Nutmeg Hydro-Distillation

How Penang became famous for its Nutmegs

Nutmeg trees grow in the tropical regions and are especially suited for cultivation on the hilly terrains of Balik Pulau, Penang.
They were valuable commodities planted here by the British in the 18th century. In 1796, as many as 70,000 nutmeg plants were brought to Penang from the Moluccas. Nutmegs became a premier crop since then and till today, Penang is still renowned as the largest and highest quality nutmeg producers in Malaysia.
Green Acres Penang's nutmeg trees bear large palm-sized juicy nutmegs. Apart from its pure nutmeg essential oil, they are also artisanally hand made into teas, syrups, ciders, preserves, jams and spices.
