The Judges Comments
"This is an absolute stunner. And a delight to judge"
"An attractive salt that really packs a punch. We enjoyed the crisp salt crystals that delivered on every level, with all the components working together, thyme lemon and spice. Delicious!"
"Very appealing looking coloured salt with generous flecks notes. What a brilliant concept - so clever!"
"The salt is beautifully clean, the chilli is well balanced and offers up fruity heat - which is quite intense, yet not at a level where you weep!"

Product Story & Inspiration
Product Story & Inspiration
Ross Bearman, Founder of Ross & Ross Gifts sampled a special chilli called Ají Limón from our local chilli supplier, Oxfordshire Chilli Garden. After smelling and tasting the chilli he was instantly inspired by the intense flavour and quality of the chilli. He went to work creating a product that utilised this amazing flavour whilst blending other key ingredients that he knew would create an incredible addition to our customers foods.
The Anglesey Sea Salt
Drawn from the shores of Anglesey, this sea salt is known to be the finest around. We source this salt from Halen Mon, who are experts in creating this quality salt through their unique and vigorous process.
The Ají Limón (Lemon Drop)
The local chillies we have used in this product are sourced from Oxfordshire Chilli Garden, just a few miles away from our office. As soon as Ross tasted and smelt the Lemon Drop Chillies he knew we were onto a winner. Ross had already sampled the Ají Limón from other chilli producers in Peru and Zimbabwe and noticed a significant difference in taste. The international chillies were dull and lacking any real zing, but the local chillies were on another level of flavour.
The Lemon Thyme & Garlic
We have blended the intense flavours of the local chillies and the finest sea salt with background notes of lemon thyme and garlic. The combination of flavours within this blend provide some pungent smoky notes and fragrant aromas.
