Only the finest, 100% South African ingredients go into Banhoek Chilli Oil. It’s handmade in small batches and uniquely cooked using induction heating to ensure consistent heating levels that other methods simply can’t beat.
Frustrated by the death of chilli oils available on local and even international shelves, the founders set out to create their own premium oil; testing and trialling dozens of variations of chillies, oils and production methods until they got it right. What began as a passion project in a home kitchen has since grown into a thriving enterprise, and today Banhoek Chilli Oil is sold in hundreds of stores across southern Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Banhoek Chilli Oil was founded on three principles: quality, consistency and flavour. While there are niche chilli oils that use olive oil as a base, they believe that the boldness of the olive taste masks the subtle flavours of the chillies. Since they're all about the chilli, the neutral choice is premium rapeseed oil, harvested from the golden farmlands of the Overberg district, an hour’s drive from Cape Town. Together with locally grown, sun-dried and hand-crushed Bird’s Eye chillies gently infused into the oil, it delivers the perfect balance of flavour and heat.
