Cloves (Civ6) Cloves are a special Luxury Resource in Civilization VI. They can be obtained only by attaining Suzerainty with the City-State of Zanzibar.

  • +6 Amenities6 Amenities (+1 Amenities6 Amenity to up to 6 cities)


Cloves (Civ6) Cloves are one of two luxury resources available exclusively from a city-state, and one of three (along with Cinnamon (Civ6) Cinnamon and Perfume (Civ6) Perfume) that supplies 6 Amenities6 Amenities. Since it does not provide Montezuma's units with a Civ6StrengthIcon Combat Strength bonus, it is most useful to the Scots (whose cities receive Civ6Science Science and Civ6Production Production bonuses when they are Happy or Ecstatic).

In the Gifts of the Nile scenario, Punt provides its Suzerain with Cloves (Civ6) Cloves.

Civilopedia entry Edit

Cloves are the dried flower bud from a tree native to the Maluku Islands in Indonesia; an aromatic spice, it is used in cuisines worldwide. Now harvested primarily in Indonesia, India, Zanzibar, and Madagascar, cloves have a numbing effect on mouth tissues and have been used in the past as a medicine as well as a spice. Until planted outside the islands, the Dutch East India Company had a virtual monopoly on the spice; in Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, cloves were quite literally worth their weight in gold due to the demand.
