    A definite must visit stop if you are in Espelette. For a free tour that we just spontaneously joined, we were pleasantly surprised by the length, depth and generosity of the tour from the pepper fields to the processing area and then finally to the degustation which was a 6 round tasting of espelette infused gelees, confits, rillete, hot sauce, chocolate and even an apertivo to wrap up. Great quality shop to get the items you enjoyed after :)
