 Our beans are triple inspected throughout the beans journey from Sri Lanka to the United States. First, they are inspected by our farmers who have hundreds of years of wisdom and experience growing these gourmet pods.  The second inspection is before bulk vacuum sealing for transport and to ensure no mold has developed. The final inspection is done at our warehouse moments before packing your shipment. We check the smell, quality, and appearance if any mold has developed a final time. Once all of these are checked, we vacuum seal our vanilla beans in our beautiful custom industrial vacuum pouch to a tight 28 HG vacuum.   


  • Traditionally Cured Gourmet Planifolia Vanilla Beans from 2023-2024 Crop
  • Average Length: Approximately 4 – 7 Inches (13 cm – 16 cm)


Storage: Vacuum packed/sealed bag preferred to ensure fresh beans otherwise wrapped in zip lock bag inside an air tight container such as a glass jar. Shelf Life of approximately 2 years if properly vacuum sealed.

Top notch flavor

Everything I've bought from Vanilla Bean Kings as been the gold standard in quality. Split beans in bourbon and ferment for 6-12mo for superb flavor! You can use vodka for a more mild and clean tasting vanilla. I find that bourbon gives it full bodied rich and smokey profile.
