Chilli No. 5: The Flavour Revolution – Born During Lock-down

Amidst the confines of lock-down, the founders of Chilli No. 5 found themselves craving more than just the ubiquitous Tabasco sauce for their gourmet chilli fix.

Driven by a thirst for flavour, spice, and healthy ingredients, the founders set out on a culinary adventure – crafting new and exciting flavors, inspired by the most sought-after chili sauces in the world.

Leading the charge – is Rumble Romagnoli – an ideas man, with a passion for improving experiences. Having managed a beach restaurant on the sun-kissed shores of Saint Tropez, Romagnoli’s commitment to quality and enjoyment has always superseded shortcuts. Joining forces with Romagnoli is Colin, the founder chef, who honed his culinary skills – whilst catering to discerning tastes aboard yachts and villas.

The inspiration behind the birth of Chilli No. 5 stems from a dissatisfaction with the current state of the sauce market. Although the plethora of options might seem wonderful, many mass-produced sauces are manufactured in factories – relying on shortcuts that sacrifice freshness and flavour.

The founders refused to settle for mediocrity, so they set out to create something exceptional: they envisioned a range of sauces – made with healthy, high-quality ingredients – packaged in reusable or recyclable glass containers. For them, it was an obvious choice to prioritize taste and sustainability.
