These are Tahitian Vanilla beans in an 8 oz swing top bail lidded glass jar. This is double folded vanilla, so it has a very good strong flavor. Each jar has 1 Vanilla bean added to it. All of our Vanilla extract "brews" for at least 12-18 months before we sell it. We use Vodka or Brandy for our base and add the Vanilla beans to marinate until ready for use. For shipping orders, insurance and signing for the package will be added to the cost of shipping.
