Our Story

Gunda Hewitt-Kortava first moved to her mother's native country of Abkhazia (Ab-Car-Zia), which is wedged between the gentle waters of the Black Sea and the lofty heights of the Caucasus Mountains. Little did she expect on her return journey to the UK, was to be accompanied by an Abkhazian husband and to have acquired a new-found knowledge and passion for the countries delicious cuisine.

One of the most popular and natural seasonings of cooking in the South Caucasus is Ajika, a delicious chilli paste and an essential ingredient and condiment that Gunda was determined to introduce to the UK.

Ajika is a well-known blend of chillies and fragrant herbs and spices, and with its unique heritage, tantalising aroma and wide range of applications, these wonderful chilli and herb pastes bring something truly different to the world of spices.
