A well-known spicy core component of the cuisine of the South Caucasus, now authentically made in the UK, Kortava’s Ajika Abkhazian, aims to revolutionise the UK spice market. Discover the magic right here!

Why is Ajika so special…

Ajika is a well-known blend of chillies and fragrant herbs and spices with traditional varieties originating from regions of the South Caucasus such as Abkhazia, but until now, no authentic variety has been widely available in the UK. With its unique heritage, ultra-savoury flavour bursts, tantalising aroma and wide range of applications, these wonderful chilli and herb pastes bring something truly different to the world of spices.

Lovingly made, based on a generation-old family recipe, using only the best quality natural ingredients, our products can be enjoyed as a meat or chicken rub, a  marinade for fish, blended with natural yoghurt, hummus or soured cream, as a base ingredient for curries, soups and pasta sauces, or even as a salad dressing if loosened with oil or water. Their wealth of applications makes our  range extremely versatile in every sense of the word, and their superb taste and manageable heat, will just leave you wanting more.


Ajika Chilli Paste Medium Heat

This is our medium heat variety, which is full of our well known flavour, but with less of the heat. Ideal for cooking with fish, savory dishes or as just an introduction into the colourful world of eastern spices.

Hot Ajika Chilli Paste

The hot variety is where the action is at. Lovingly created with a temperature enough to satisfy most chilli lovers without taking away from the distinct taste you have come to love.

Green and Mild Heat Ajika Chilli Paste

Our green and mild variety is a great compliment to the hotter red pastes. With more herbs to add to its colour and variation on flavour, we find it goes perfectly with lamb or blended with soured cream.
