We have used at least a gallon of your extract and every drop was fantastic! Highest quality I've ever found." – Danny

2-Fold Madagascar (Bourbon) Vanilla Extract

Double-fold (2X) vanilla extracts are made with twice the quantity of vanilla beans used for the same volume of single-fold extract. This results in a more concentrated (double-strength) extract.

Pure vanilla extract. No artificial flavors or preservatives. Certified Kosher. Non-GMO. Gluten-free.

Please note: Gallons are temporarily unavailable, due to the current vanilla shortage.

I love your product.  It’s the only vanilla extract we have in our house. I’m amazed at how superior it is.” Des (Daily Grommet)

Bourbon Vanilla is a generic term for Vanilla planifolia, and is the most commonly used variety in vanilla extract. Vanilla planifolia stock originated in Mexico, vanilla’s birthplace, but cuttings were taken to other tropical countries in the 1700s. In the 1800s, the French developed large plantations on Reunion, known at the time as the Ile de Bourbon, hence the name Bourbon. Although Bourbon vanilla extract contains alcohol, it is not made from Bourbon whiskey.

Bourbon and Mexican vanillas have the familiar vanilla flavor that we associate with vanilla ice cream and other vanilla flavored desserts and beverages.

Double fold vanillas are especially useful when using convection ovens or production baking and for any products such as candy or beverages where you want to use less liquid but get a more intense flavor.

Ingredients: Purified water, sugar cane alcohol (35%), premium Planifolia (Bourbon) vanilla bean extractives. No artificial flavors or preservatives added. Certified Kosher. Non-GMO. Gluten-free. Rain’s Choice vanilla extracts are simply the best.

Vanilla extract has no expiration date, as the flavor improves with age.

    I have been using the Vanilla queen’s vanilla extract for a few years now, & it really does make all the difference. I use vanilla a lot, for smoothies, granola, power bars, porridge, cookies, cakes, & pies. It just makes sense to buy it in bulk, as I save money in the long run. The taste of this particular double fold madagascar bourbon vanilla is exquisite. I am so grateful for this company & the ethics behind it.
