Gran Luchito

The authentic Smoked Chilli Flavour Of Mexico

Our range of smoky condiments are found all accross the UK in ASDA, Sainsburys, Booths and Whole Foods Market and online with Ocado and Amazon. 


Gran Luchito was founded in 2012, by Fergus Chamberlain, a food buyer turned Chef, who had the inspiration for the range following a month long chilli tasting adventure in the Oaxaca region of Mexico.  Having tried and experimented with the 18 types of chilli he discovered, he was particularly struck by the smokiness of the Oaxaca chilli and visited local farmers to find out more, before returning to the UK with a suitcase full.  On his return to the UK and with some help of friend and Chef Alex Talbot, he worked on perfecting the first Gran Luchito recipe, which was inspired by Oaxaca delicacy Chintextle, an authentic smoked chilli paste.  Once complete he even travelled back to Mexico to taste test his creation with the farmers before the very first jars went on sale at Maltby Street Market in December 2012.

Lending themselves to all manner of Mexican and even traditional British dishes, each sauce is worthy of kitchen experimentation.  Here’s a run-down on the three favourites:


Smoked Chilli Paste - To make this knockout paste, Pasilla Oaxaca Chillies are ground with caramelized onions, balsamic vinegar and a dash of dark agave syrup, to deliver a real depth of flavour.  Great rubbed into steak, roasted with seafood, as a marinade for chicken, blended with cream cheese or simply scrambled with eggs.


Smoked Chilli Honey - Similar to Chipotle Honey but smokier, less hot and with a real depth of flavour.  Recommended as a great glaze for ham, marinated with chicken wings, drizzled over cheese, fried with salmon or dolloped onto pork chops.


Smoked Chilli Mayo - The chillies are blended with free range egg mayonnaise to create the ultimate mayo to dunk and dollop.  Try smothered on a hotdog or burger, spread into a sandwich, stirred into tuna and prawn cocktails or dipped into French fries.

But we have a vision and conviction that one day Gran Luchito will be a UK household brand and we're looking for amazing people to join our team who share this same beleif. 


We're offering you the opportunity to get in on the 'ground floor', to learn as we learn and to grow as we grow. And above all the opportunity for you to make a real impact.   


And if we all work hard, stay true to what we beleive, keep it fun and have a little sprinkle of luck, we're offering you the opporuntiy to be part of something epic.
