Meet the Master Distiller

For the last decade Abdullah Arsala has been transforming poppy fields into organic orchards in eastern Afghanistan. Whilst studying biochemistry at University in California, Abdullah dropped out to work on an organic farm. Inspired by what he learned Abdullah decided to return to Afghanistan to reclaim his family's ancestral lands, much of which had been turned into poppy fields under the control of the Taliban. Abdullah has pioneered the field of essential oils in Afghanistan, and is committed to entirely organic farming practices.

True Neroli

There is very little genuine Neroli on the market today because it is so difficult to harvest. It must be done in a short window in springtime when orange blossoms bloom. The flowers, harvested early in the morning, just after they open, are allowed to gently fall on white cloths lying beneath the trees. They are then gathered and carefully driven to the distillery, and distilled in the same day they are picked. The result is a captivating, joyful fragrance.

The persuasion game

Over many years, Abdullah has convinced over 1600 local farmers to switch from growing poppy to growing indigenous fruits and flowers. It has not been an easy argument to make - poppies are a higher value crop, and while orange and damascene rose bushes are suited to the Afghan soil and climate, it takes three years for their crop to reach a harvestable level of maturity. Nevertheless, thanks to Abdullah's efforts in dozens of farms across Eastern Afghanistan, orchards of bitter orange where poppy once grew.
