Hey folks, remember Sauce Shop?
I’ve had some truly delicious sauces from them in the past, in the form of a green sriracha, 📽️ a crazy ketchup and a heatless cherry bourbon barbecue 📽️ but today, we’ve got something extra special. As you can tell from the mock-confetti on its label:
But wait, does that say “Chipotle Hot Sauce”? Doesn’t every company make one of those?
Yes, this is a standard recipe of just three ingredients – Chipotle, vinegar and salt – but its heavier on the peppers than most smoky sauces and that vinegar is something special. Here’s what the bottle actually says:
Chipotle Pepper, Porter Vinegar (water, barley, hops, yeast, vanilla), Sea Salt.
This is a chipotle sauce of the sort that only Sauce Shop would make, with not only fermented chillies but a specially fermented vinegar, too. And, as I’ve said many a time before, the vinegar that you choose can really make or break a sauce.
Let’s see what vanilla porter does for their fifth anniversary release, shall we?
