  • The juniper berry is actually not a berry, but a modified conifer seed cone. They are unusually fleshy giving them the berry like appearance. 

  • There are multiple species of juniper berries including even some toxic ones. 

  • Juniper has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. In ancient Greece they used juniper berries not only as spices and medicine but they believe it increased physical stamina in athletes so the berries were used in the Olympic games.

  • Juniper berries were even found in ancient Egypt in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Juniper berries were not known to grow in Egypt so it is believed they came from Greece. 

  • They have been known to have been used as female birth control due to the increased risk of miscarriage attached to consumption of juniper berries. 

JUNIPER

The Old Town Spice Shop in Fort Collins, Colorado supplies our juniper berries. In 1985 the Godbey family moved to Colorado. In September 2010 the spice shop idea was created. On December 3rd 2010, 65 days after deciding to start the business, the Old Town Spice Shop opened in fort Collins. Instead of investing in a franchise the Godbey family decided to start their own business, which allows them to partner with the community of northern Colorado.
