  • History of Ceylon Cinnamon

Around 1518, Portuguese traders discovered cinnamon at Ceylon, present-day Sri Lanka, and conquered its island kingdom of Kotto, enslaving the island's population and gaining control of the cinnamon trade for about a century until the Ceylon kingdom of Kandy allied with the Dutch in 1638 to overthrow the Portuguese.

Cinnamon has been known from ancient days and was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as gift fit for monarchs. It was considered more precious than gold.Historically the most important spice export of Sri Lanka has been the cinnamon. There are records of trade in Ceylon cinnamon in Roman times. Cinnamon originating from Sri Lanka was recognized as of superior quality and also referred to as "sweet cinnamon"
