This organic Spanish garlic has been carefully fermented for a minimum of 6 weeks, allowing incredible depth of flavour to develop. Caramelised, sticky cloves are then minced and sealed in a glass jar (ferments generally taste better in a natural vessel made of stone or glass – it’s better for the environment too).

Wild fermentation doesn’t involve adding any starter culture to the ferment. It’s all about the quality of the raw ingredient. That’s why we choose organic Spanish garlic.

Organic garlic that is free from pesticides and other contaminants is the only garlic that we ferment. We never use dried garlic. And we never use cheap, ready peeled garlic. Frankly, we all deserve better than that.

We don’t rush the ferment either. Garlic needs to ferment for a minimum of 6 weeks. Then the colours start to deepen, the flavours to mellow.

Sea salt is the only other ingredient, so you won’t get any nasty vinegar taste as you do from some other minced/pureed garlic brands – just the wonderful taste of pure, raw, unpasteurised, fermented, organic garlic.

This wild fermented garlic paste adds deep richness and savoury warmth to any dish. And pound for pound it is much better value – and better for you-  than cheaper alternatives.

Every teaspoon is the equivalent to 1-2 large cloves of garlic but with ten zillion times the flavour. And, with approximately 25 teaspoons in every jar, a little really does go a long way.

Add a teaspoon of fermented garlic paste to button mushrooms, a couple of cherry tomatoes and a splash of olive oil and sauté for 5 minutes for a mouthwateringly quick pasta sauce.

Mix 2 teaspoons with extra virgin olive oil, make a cut lengthways along a self-bake baguette, making sure not to cut right through. Drizzle the garlicky mix inside and bake as normal. Ten minutes later enjoy delicious warm garlic bread.

Better still, mix with our Melting Pot*** meltable potato cheese for a divine, cheesy, garlicky delight.

Where we deliver

We deliver across the UK (excluding the Channel Islands). Our prices include the cost of standard delivery across the UK and/or express tracked delivery to most of England and Wales. Additional charges may apply for express tracked delivery to other parts of the UK.

Standard delivery

Where the product price includes standard delivery charges, this means the cost of second class delivery by Royal Mail of small parcels under 2kg in weight to anywhere in the UK, excluding the Channel Islands.

Ambient, non-chilled items under 2kg will be sent by standard second class post (this usually takes 3-5 working days), or on a tracked 48 hour Royal Mail service. Tracking details, where available, with an estimated delivery date are provided as soon as possible after the items are shipped.

Tracked delivery

Perishable items will be sent by express tracked delivery by DHL, Royal Mail or DPD. This currently usually takes 1-3 business days from dispatch. Tracking details with an estimated delivery date are provided as soon as possible after the items are shipped.

Where the product price includes express tracked delivery, this means the cost of tracked express delivery by courier (usually DHL) to the UK excluding the Channel Islands and also excluding the following postal areas:

AB* Aberdeen
FK* Falkirk
ZE* Shetland
IM*Isle of Man
DD* Dundee

Couriers charge more to ship our products to the above postal areas. If you require delivery to one of these areas we will need check with the courier to prepare a bespoke quote. Please use the contact form to contact us so that we can verify the cost of postage with the courier before you place an order. For parcels weighing under 2kg Royal Mail Tracked 24 is likely to be the fastest and cheapest service. For parcels weighing over 2kg, DPD is likely to provide the next most economical service.

If you decide to go ahead with the quote, a credit of £5 will be added to your charges. Therefore, should the fee for postage from, say DPD, be £16, for example, you will pay an extra £11. And if the fee is £7.80 with Royal Mail you will pay an additional £2.80.

You may alternatively arrange a collection from our premises by appointment.

Deliveries to the Scottish Highlands and Islands, Cornwall, the Isle of Man and the Isles of Scilly delivery may take longer than 3 days at busy times.

We aim to have your delivery ready for dispatch within 2 working days of receipt of your order.


Once your order has been posted (if an express delivery service is applicable) we will provide a tracking number by email.

From that point it is your responsibility to track your item and either make sure you or someone else on your behalf are at home to accept delivery, or arrange a redelivery or collection from the courier.

If you do not take delivery, within a reasonable timescale or 1-2 business days, we cannot replace items that may have spoilt as a result.

Items in transit

Our products are resilient to minor fluctuations in temperature and humidity in transit. 1-3 business days in transit in ambient temperature should not cause spoilage.

In warmer weather, we may pack our products in reusable ice sheets for protection.

At peak times, for example Christmas, it is possible that items will take longer to arrive, even when you pay extra for express delivery.
