About us

 

Chilli Hills is a boutique family farm in the Vitosha mountains of Bulgaria which specialises in the cultivation of domestic and international strains of chilli pepper.

Launching as a brand in 2014, their uniquely devoted approach to product quality and establishing new tastes saw Chilli Hills rapidly become a stamp of quality and the brand quickly established itself as a leader in the chilli product market in Bulgaria.

The product range of the brand so far exceeds 30 different variations, from our famous Balkan Hot Sauces to craft chilli beer, chilli-infused brandy, gourmet chilli salts, chilli-infused oils and many others, including of course the hottest peppers in the world.

The brand’s signature line ‘Balkan Hot Sauce’ includes what is officially the hottest chilli sauce in Bulgaria.

All Chilli Hills products are 100% natural, and are free from preservatives, thickeners and colourants. This season, the family farm has expanded operations and we are now also farming chilli peppers on a second site outside of Kokalyane.

Over 40 different types of chilli peppers from all over the world are now growing over a combined 20-hectare area.

Chilli Hills’ expansion now also includes a brand new production workshop and sampling laboratory.

The products of this native boutique brand can be found throughout the national network of natural food stores, finer delicatessens, many contemporary restaurants, gourmet festivals, farmers markets, and exhibitions.

This summer of 2017, the brand began marketing and distribution outside of Bulgaria.

 

The Factory

Our bottling factory is located on the outskirts of Sofia. It is fully licensed for processing and preserving fruit and vegetables. This is where the magic happens!

 

The Lab

Our laboratory is situated on the farm and functions as our base for product development and testing. Our state-of-the-art grow box system allows us to start the plants early with perfect control over temperature, light and humidity.

The Fields

Due to demand we have expanded our operations in 2017 and are now also farming chillies outside Kokalyane, in the verdant central plains of Bulgaria.
