Lingham’s Ginger Garlic Chilli Sauce

Lingham’s Ginger Garlic Chilli Sauce

It is odd but this is the first time I have tasted a Lingham’s sauce, I have seen them about for years, but always passed them by, expecting it to a cheap, sweet concoction, with little depth of flavour, maybe I have become a sauce snob!

The business was founded over 100 years ago in Malaysia around 1908 by a Mr Lingham who developed his sauce to satisfy the genteel palate of the English living in nearby Georgetown, the current company was incorporated in 1971, they have developed the original 1908 product into a range of five sauces.:-

  • Linghams Chilli Sauce
  • Lingham’s Chilli Sauce with Ginger
  • Lingham’s Chilli Sauce with Garlic
  • Lingham’s Chilli Sauce with Ginger & Garlic
  • Lingham’s Thai Chilli Sauce

They are now distributed in over 20 countries, and can be found in most UK supermarkets

Ingredients: Chilli (30%), Ginger (10%), Garlic (10%), Sugar, Vinegar, Salt.

On opening the bottle, the enticing smell hits you, ginger and garlic fill the air, the sauce is a deep red colour, as I tip some on the my plate, it starts to run quickly from the bottle, it is not watery, but is not a thick gloop ether.

I did not expect this to be a hot hot sauce, the first taste is again similar to smell, ginger and garlic, and then followed by a hint of heat which grows a little over time, nothing to hot, in fact it is very pleasant, idea as a dipping sauce with spring rolls, or with rice.

I guess the best comparison would be to a Thai dipping sauce, but without the pieces of chilli and seeds, the low price of £1.95 makes this sauce usable every day. This bottle will be used very quickly in our household and may find its way into allsorts of recipes, if for nothing else but the ginger and garlic flavour.

If you like dipping sauces, it’s worth a try, you can buy it on-line at

Hello: What is the price of the Lingham’s chili sauce? If I purchase four bottles, how much would shipping be? Thanks for your time. Sylvia Girten

Hi Sylvia

I am sorry but we don’t sell any products, we are an on-line magazine, we just write about chillies.

I received an email from a Dave Lucas, he represents Linghams in the US. There currently no place in the US to buy this sauce. My wife and I love it. I bought it from a store in England and I’m about to buy 4 more bottles again. you can try to buy over there. the shipping is a little high but the sauce is worth it. good luck. PS. Dave Lucas will try to introduce this sauce sometime in May.
