Devil's Mortar; Spicy, Spreadable, Stunning.


Our famous squidgy, spicy, spreadable sausage inspired by a Scottish recipe from the 1800s. 'Nduja and Sobrassada's British cousin!  

High welfare, heritage breed pork and pork fat, along with heaps of locally-smoked chillis, dried tomatoes and anchovy oil. Perfect for smearing on bread or snazzying up your spag bol.

Ideal for Pizza & Burger Toppings; Just look at it on the Tooley Street Burger from Honest Burgers' London Bridge branch. 

Both Half & Whole, unopened, have a best before of 3 months, but a use-by of 6 months. We recommend, once open, consumption within 2-4 weeks. 

You can also choose to have us portion it for you, for an even more secure shelf life! £2 covers the extra packaging, but you then get to open only as much as you need at any given time.

A great spreadable salami

Forget nduja. Devil’s mortar certainly holds it own as a more local and equally delicious spreadable salami

Umami weapon

We bought the 500g just before Xmas and chipped away at it for a month. It went into breakfast eggs, pasta ragus, duck rice and on breads. Should be part of every foodie’s umami weaponry.

Love it

Incredible as always! A must buy!!


The mistake I made was that I thought this was an N'Duja. it is not. It is C&Q's own individual product. But, that is not a negative, on the contrary. This is rather very nice. You can really taste the quality of the pork used, not only that the rest of the ingredients combine beautifuly to make an awesome salami.

However, I would like the heat level turned up further.

Prompt and Proper

I’m from the US and ordered this for a good friend, having never shipped to a UK address. The online form was intuitive, easy to use, and simple to pay. I even reached out to request a note be included and the staff were happy to oblige. They delivered the mortar promptly and gave me updates along the way. Well done!
