Original Fresh & Spicy Hot Sauce

Louisiana style hot sauce has a rich history going back to the late nineteenth century. Popular brands such as Crystal Hot Sauce, Tabasco®, Frank’s Red Hot Original®, and “Louisiana” The Perfect Hot Sauce, to name a few, have preserved their respective recipes with pride. We take our hats off to this unadulterated process of fermenting a pepper mash of either cayenne or tabasco chiles. Thin and vinegar forward, most of the name brand sauces with largest market share don’t utilize many other ingredients otherwise, instead relying on the sharp, earthy, and acidic of cayenne peppers or the notes of celery and green onions which pop up with the quickly dissipating heat on the lips and tongue of a tabasco chile to round out the flavor. Vinegar is quite often the first ingredient listed.

Gindo’s Original Fresh & Spicy turns this process on its head. Our own take on Louisiana style hot sauce is full bodied and complex. Red bell pepper preps the tongue with smooth, fruity, sweetness, undercutting the acidity of vinegar. Habanero pepper interrupts at the most opportune time and grows climatically. Just when its heat reaches a satisfying intensity, the freshness of the mouth feel softens it to a simmer, but the flavor that lingers is simply refreshing.
