Handmade in Mexico for sensationally smoky cooking.

Fergus fell in love with this unique flavour and set about creating Gran Luchito's Chipotle paste. The recipe development took him six months as he worked with local Oaxacan Chefs, Mexican American Chef Susana Trilling and New York food blogger Alex.
