Where it all began...


Melanie Auld has always loved cooking.  As a child, hosting an imaginary cookery show from her treehouse, she could make anything with just water, plastic pans and sawdust from her Dad's workshop.

Inspired by 6 months in India, spices replaced sawdust as Mel perfected her repertoire of superb home-cooked curries.
Three kids later, and with no time for complicated recipes, Mel's signature curries looked set to become a thing of the past - unless she could find a serious short-cut.  

Spice Pots was launched in 2013 from her home kitchen (sawdust free) in East Lothian and now anyone can make a delicious curry, without the hassle.

You won't find any long ingredients list and complicated recipes with Spice Pots.  It's simples!

Each aromatic pot is still hand-filled in Scotland and contain only the finest spices  - no fillers, no nasties.  The pots are gluten free and contain no sugar or salt.

All the pots can be used with vegetables, meat, fish or pulses.  Make simple curries or use to season BBQ food.  Click here to browse our products.
