Aged to Perfection
Barrel Aged, Never Cooked.
Our chilli sauces are matured in oak barrels for up to 3 years and hand-churned each day. Whether it's wine, whiskey or our sauces, all authentic flavours require dedication, time and patience to develop their smoky, woodsy overtones.
For centuries, viticulturists (winemakers) have known that naturally fermenting products in oak barrels infuses a complex flavour profile into its contents.
We use similar methods to create our artisanal, chilli products. Each cultivar is handpicked and sun-ripened under the scorching heat of the Little Karoo, before carefully being blended into oak vats along with the finest natural ingredients: deeply-hued apple cider vinegar, aromatic garlic cloves fresh from the farm and crystal clear spring water piped straight from the heart of the Langeberg. Our casks are reused, and sourced from local wine and whisky distilleries, which imparts a mild, tannic undertone to our sauces,

Whether it's carefree brunches with family, casual summer's day braais, formal dinner soirees with the in-laws, cocktails with co-workers or entertaining friends with a daringly spicy dessert, there's a Jumping Jackal product that is sure to impress.
