Made on Mount Gerazim, near to a little town called Nablus – the original home of Tahini, the sesame seeds hail from Ethiopia, which some say produce the best sesame in the world. They are washed clean, and then roasted. There is no prescribed formula, but with each batch the roasters perform their duties with their nose as well as their eyes, making sure that the seeds do not catch or overheat. Once peeled, the seeds are double-milled for an incredibly fine finish.
