Almost two centuries after their creation, Peugeot mills are some of the most symbolic French objects that have influenced history. In honor of their exceptional adventure, the Antique Collection goes back in time to bring out some iconic mills while restoring the charm of the old days. This collection reunites unique pieces in a wood carefully selected for this tribute. Each mill is a precious object, produced very carefully by hand. Each creation enhances the mastery of the material to bring back the nostalgia and magical charm of time gone by.

Peugeot: A company with a conscience
- The wood used to manufacture their peppermills is certified by
PEFC, an international non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management.
- Post manufacturing waste-wood (chips and sawdust)
is collected and recycled.
- Solvent-free stains are used for the various finishes.
- Peugeot contracts with suppliers who preferentially employ handicapped people.
This peppermill is equipped with a helix-shaped double row of teeth that precisely guides and holds the peppercorns to give you a perfect grind each and every time. The steel mechanism undergoes a unique patented process to protect it from corrosion while maintaining its sharpness and wear resistance.
To get the best out of your Peugeot pepper grinding
mechanism, we recommend you use
peppercorns with a diameter of 6 mm (¼") or less.
Black, white, and dry green peppercorns can be
ground in Peugeot pepper mills. The pink berries
can be ground only in a blend that does not exceed 15% pink peppercorns. Peugeot peppermills are also approved for grinding dried
