Melbourne Hot Sauce Hop Smoked Jalapeño (Melbourne, VIC AUSTRALIA)
Chilli: Jalapeños (56%)
This sauce is a 3-way collaboration between Melbourne Hot Sauce, Wolf of the Willows Brewery and St Kilda Burger Bar and, coincidentally enough, is a hot sauce designed for burgers! It features Extra Pale Ale (XPA) beer and jalapeños that are smoked for 6 hours over cherry wood and galaxy hops, giving this sauce a natural smoky aroma and flavour. It has a thick consistency and a deep crimson red colour from both the jalapenos and tomato. There is a slight bitterness from the XPA that is well balanced with the acid from the lemon and tomato and the sweetness from the sugar. A solid heat from the jalapeños that is not too overpowering, but that deep and authentic smokiness is the true star of this hot sauce. Read the full review.
Danny Balboa's Juice Head (Coburg North, VIC, AUSTRALIA)
Chilli: Habanero, Szechuan pepper
Dan has created a very different style of hot sauce, one that has grapes as the base ingredient! This is a chunky style sauce and the distinctive sweet and juicy aroma of grapes is definitely the first thing you can smell, but the addition of onions and tomatillos provide both a depth and a sharpness of flavour to balance that. The habanero is not a burning heat but, true to habanero’s form, there is a definite build up the more you eat. The “cherry-on-top” for this sauce is the Szechuan pepper it gives the sauce an overall punchiness and complements the sweet grape flavour perfectly. Read the full review.
Mofo Hot Sauce Orange Habanero (Perth WA, AUSTRALIA)
Chilli: Orange Habanero
The Mofo Orange Habanero Hot Sauce gets its striking orange colour from two special ingredients: orange habaneros and apricots. The apricot plays a double role, first, it gives this sauce a nice thick, smooth consistency, that does take a bit to get it out of the bottle but is well worth the effort. And second it provides a great flavour pickup for the orange habanero which is known for its natural apricot flavours. Combine this with garlic, onion and ginger and you have yourself one very tasty sauce. The distinctive habanero heat is delivered all over your mouth thanks to the sauces thicker consistency.
