[What is Vanillage]
Vanilla is a flavor that everyone has been familiar with since childhood. Even with such a familiar material, there are probably few people who actually know the real scent. Real vanilla beans are actually an expensive and valuable material that is said to be more expensive than silver. *1
We created sweets that “enjoy the most vanilly” that make use of real “vanilla”, sticking to ingredients that existed naturally but were not dared to focus on.
*1: Refers to the vanilla beans used in this product.
Diamant means “diamond” in French. The name comes from the sparkling sugar around the cookie. We use 100% fermented butter from France and are particular about the formulation that maximizes the scent of Bourbon vanilla. The 12-pack comes in a tin with an impressive hummingbird, and is recommended as a gift.
4 pieces ¥486 (tax included) / 12 pieces ¥1,782 (tax included) [Cacao Banille]
A richer cookie that adds the aroma and texture of chocolate chips and cacao nibs to Diamant Bunille. The ancient Aztecs flavored their cacao beverages with vanilla, which then spread to Europe and evolved into chocolate. Vanilla and chocolate are commonplace nowadays, but we thought of these two historic scents and created delicious cookies that are loved by people of all ages, from children to adults. [Image 3
4 pieces ¥518 (tax included) / 12 pieces ¥1,890 (tax included) [Vanilla Financier]
A financier that allows you to fully enjoy the scent of Bourbon vanilla with a simple formula. We have combined fragrant almond poodle, high-quality fermented butter from France, and milk from Hokkaido to create a highly satisfying baked confectionery. The moment you put it in your mouth, the sweet scent of vanilla spreads out, making it the perfect snack for tea time.
2 pieces ¥497 (tax included) / 8 pieces ¥1,836 (tax included)
[Rico Catalana (Bourbon Vanilla)]
Rico is a Spanish word that means “rich taste”. Using pure fresh cream and milk from Hokkaido, we deliver smooth catalana that melts in your mouth one by one. While paying attention to the temperature, Bourbon vanilla vanilla beans are boiled and flavored, and Hokkaido pure fresh cream is blended with 42% and 35% milk fat. I try not to make the afterglow after eating too heavy while giving it a richness. [Image 5
