Do you grow your own chillies and other ingredients or source them from local providers?
We both grow and source our ingredients locally.
Tell us more about your range of sauces.
There are plenty of chilli products on the market. Is there something special that sets your sauce apart?
Our products are a breath of fresh air for hot sauce lovers, as when we develop our sauces not only do we use some of the more rare chilli peppers but our sauces retain the flavour that is unique to each particular strain.
We’d love to hear your recommendation on where and how to use your sauces – are there specific dishes to which your sauces are best suited? Can they be used during cooking and used as a dressing over say, a salad?
Our sauces are intended as ready-to-eat table sauces, they’ve been used by both every day customers and chefs alike on everything from pizza, pasta, seafood, Mexican and even in deserts.
For example, our range of sweet hot sauces go incredibly well on everything from bacon and eggs to ice cream!
Which of your sauces is your personal favourite? What about a personal favourite from another brand?
Are you also a chilli lover? What’s the hottest chilli you’ve ever tried and how did you look by the end of it?
The hottest fresh chilli I’ve ever bitten into was a Moruga Scorpion and I looked a mess by the end.
Thanks Patrick from 13 Angry Scorpions for sharing your story with everyone!
