What gives us our explosive edge?
1) Quality - To ensure maximum freshness and flavour all our blends are produced on a small batch basis, from whole spices. Whole spices are more flavourful and fresh then powdered spices. Freshly toasted, ground and blended by us.
2) Provenance - All suppliers have been carefully selected off of traceability and the quality of product they offer. All ingredients are 100% natural.
3) Authenticity - All blends are crafted using ingredients of the highest quality to make the most authentic spice blends and seasonings you'll find globally. You won't be able to find more authentic flavours anywhere.
About the Founder
I founded Gunpowder Spices on the 5th November 2020.
This was following a bumpy ride in my first 'career' job, that I was made redundant from 9 months in. It transpired the accounts team in America had overinflated assets of the company considerably.
Having completed a degree in Business and Management a year prior to this, our professors were eager to drum into us the overwhelmingly high failure rate of start up's (95%) and seemed eager to make sure none of us started a business in our lives, ever.
They weren't very convincing... or there's a correlation between regular over-intoxication and poor learning. I'm convinced it was the lecturers.
Having worked as a chef I started to cook more with the ample spare time I had, now being unemployed and being swept up into lockdowns. Slowly I came to the realisation that many of the large spice producers blends and spices were seriously lacklustre in flavour and authenticity. Paired with regular perusing of the spice section in various supermarkets, only to leave disappointed by the lack of spices had become a regular occurance, and really started to irritate me.
From there Gunpowder Spices was born. The company is fuelled my desire to build a top quality brand, giving everyone access to the most authentic and flavourful spices, seasonings and ingredients, whilst also guiding you with how to get the best out of everything you buy.
Cooking is such a simple way to enrich the quality of many aspects of our lives. Follow us on our journey on instagram for free weekly recipes - we'll make sure your spices don't collect dust at the back of your cupboard anymore!
