Standard UK Mainland Delivery

We dispatch orders Monday-Friday excluding UK Bank Holidays. Your order will be delivered within 3-5 working days from the date you ordered (except during 1st December & 2nd January where deliveries may take fractionally longer due to volume received). Where a customer selects the 1-2 day express service via Parcel Force, orders must be received before midday in order for us to delivery within a 2 day window. Orders received after midday will roll over to the next working day and delivery will be 1-2 days from that point. Orders sent through Parcel Force are delivered Monday to Friday only (excluding Bank Holidays).

All orders sent by Royal Mail are delivered with your normal daily post. If they cannot deliver your parcel they will leave a card notifying you and return the parcel to your local sorting office. You can then either collect from the sorting office or contact them directly to arrange redelivery – full details of these options are on the card that’s left. 

Courier orders are delivered Monday-Friday between 8am and 6pm. It's not possible to specify a time for delivery. If you or the recipient is out and unable to accept the package the courier will often leave a card advising you where they have left your package or how to arrange redelivery. If you have been given a tracking number, please refer to for further options.

If you have provided delivery instructions such as a nominated neighbour who can recieve the package if you are out or you have advised a safe place for the courier to deliver, we (The Chilli Alchemist) are not responsible for any deliveries if they go missing after being delivered to your nominated persons or place. Please note that we can not always leave this instruction for the courier.

Any failed delivery as a result of incorrect, incomplete or unclear address information provided by the customer, or as a result of the recipient not being at the address to sign for the package is not covered in the cost of delivery & additional redelivery or restocking charges may be applied. All items carry our return address.

Occasionally, we may deem it appropriate to use an alternative courier which will be in the form of an established, recognised & reputable company.

We favour a courier called Parcel Force for most of our European and international deliveries. We recommend their service as they are reliable, quick, well priced and packages are trackable. International Signed deliveries are usually cheaper but not always trackable.

Prices for non-UK deliveries vary by country and by weight. This website will calculate shipping at checkout or you can use the shipping estmation tool underneath each product.

Please note that non-EU customers are responsible for any custom/tax charges applicable in their country.

Example transit times:

  • Western Europe (France, Germany, Netherlands etc): 2-3 days
  • Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Czech Republic etc): 3-4 days
  • USA, Canada and South America: 4-5 days
  • Australia: 4-5 days
  • South Africa: 3-4 days


All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if goods you have ordered are not available. Out of stock items may still show on this website but with the term 'Out of stock' next to the item.


Cancellation of an order can only be accepted if sent by email or letter. Cancellation must be received before the goods are dispatched. If the goods have been despatched you should follow the 'Returns Policy' detailed on this website.

Returns & Refund Policy

If you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, please return it unused within 7 working days of receipt & we will refund the price. We will not pay for return postage unless the goods are faulty.

If a signature is requested on delivery and the package is clearly damaged, please reject the package or accept it but sign for it as 'damaged'. In such cases, we can refund the costs of postage.
