Produced in the town of Meaux 40 miles north east of Paris. Pommery Meaux mustard is a rustic mustard, pleasant on the palate and full of sweetness. In antiquity Meaux mustard was prepared exclusively by the religious orders and known and prized by gourmets and epicures. In 1760 a dignitary of the chapter of Meaux passed onto MJB Pommery the secret of the original mustard that since 1632 enjoyed the envied privilege of appearing officially at the royal table. In 1890, the Pommery family were the only mustard makers left in Meaux. Today, Pommery's Meaux Mustard has kept the same recipe as in the past, its ingredients are carefully selected for their different qualities.
