Made with nutmeg from Indonesia—the birthplace of nutmeg.
Nutmeg is indigenous only to the tiny Banda Islands, which are an island group within the Maluku Islands, which is an Indonesian archipelago. Nutmeg was popular in medieval Europe (where young noblemen ground the spice into their drinks with their own personal nutmeg grinders) but until the sixteenth century, the only people who knew where nutmeg came from were the Middle Eastern and Indian spice traders, who acted as middle men between the Bandanese and the Arab traders who brought the spice to Europe.
