Sultan Jasmine rice, also known as Siamese rice, is known for its exceptionally good quality. It is called a "fragrant rice" because it smells pleasantly of jasmine when cooked.
Another characteristic is its individual taste, produced by special cultivation methods. It is produced mostly in northern Thailand and to some extent in Laos, Vietnam and Italy.
According to legend, the rice got its name from originally always growing close to fragrant jasmine plants. In order to preserve this aroma, Sativa Jasmine Rice is harvested, treated and stored using traditional methods. The result is a top-quality, exquisitely aromatic long-grained rice.
