Stirred NOT Shaken

Made with dried chilli, extra virgin cold-pressed rapeseed oil from the Cotswolds, garlic, black beans, ginger, shallots, sugar, salt, mixed spices and individually selected exotic chillies, David’s Chilli Oil is the product of one man’s quest for a tastier chilli oil with a stronger heat sensation.

David's Chilli Oil: Medium and Hot

The creation of David Tait from Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, this is a chilli oil that the maker insists should be treated in the opposite way to James Bond’s martini – it is one that should be stirred and not shaken.

Available in both medium and hot, David’s Chilli Oil is a high quality, artisan chilli oil that will enliven any meal by giving it flavour and colour. It’s perfect for drizzling over hot or cold food, cooking and marinating and is especially perfect with a hunk of crusty French bread or to give that extra zip to a pasta sauce.

Tait has achieved a rare thing in getting foodies into raptures of delight. “You’ve changed our lives” comment Natalie and Richard on David’s blog. Another, Olynx, suggests: “David’s Chilli Oil is quite simply an essential for any kitchen.” On The Virtual Farmer’s Market webpage a reviewer adds: “I am rapidly becoming addicted.” I have to admit, so am I.

Retailers of David’s Chilli Oil include O’Shea’s of Knightsbridge and Partridges of Sloane Square. Buy online through The Virtual Farmer’s Market for £10 for a 308g jar at or direct from David Tait at

Tried this at Foodies yesterday. I like the medium over the hot. Good artisan product but could do with more stylish label if it is to be sold more widely.
