“Infused oils are everywhere these days,” says David Ashley, founder and president of Ashley Foods, “but there’s nothing like this. We’ve set the bar – and the level of heat and flavor – high with our first oil, and we intend to keep it there.”

The Ashley Food Company, founded by hot sauce guru David Ashley, has just released Mad Dog Ghost Pepper Fusion Oil, the first in its new line of infused oils with the world’s hottest and tastiest peppers. This oil is sparked with Bhut Jolokia peppers from India, until recently rated by the Guinness Book of World Records as the hottest pepper in the world – and still the hottest being used widely in hot sauces. It is 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce and off the charts on the Scoville Scale (used to measure the heat of peppers) at over 1 million units! By comparison, the popular bird’s eye, or peri-peri, considered very hot by some, is a “mere” 100,000 on the Scoville Scale.

“Infused oils are everywhere these days,” says David Ashley, founder and president of Ashley Foods, “but there’s nothing like this. We’ve set the bar – and the level of heat and flavor – high with our first oil, and we intend to keep it there.”

Ashley’s Mad Dog Ghost Pepper Fusion Oil begins with high-quality canola oil – the kind any good cook would use – and adds the zing of Bhut Jolokia pepper. The oil is prepared in hand-measured batches that enables Ashley to maintain tight control over flavor and heat. The result is infused oil unchained: spectacular flavor coupled with spectacular heat.

While some producers of hot food products boast only about heat, Ashley has always believed that high heat without an equal measure of great flavor cheats the customer. “More than once, I’ve had folks tell me that my Mad Dog sauces burn the hell out their mouth but also taste fantastic. With infused oils, this is even more important, since they’ll be used in sophisticated cooking, where flavor is king.”
