Hot sauce makers come from all over the world, and we had a chance to try some hot sauces from New Zealand hot sauce maker “Fire Dragon Chillies”. You can see them in the photo above. The three sauces owner Clint Meyer sent along were all quite tasty and hot. The mildest he sent along, “Xtra Hot Chilli Sauce”, was labeled as an 8/10 scale, and that still had quite the bite.
Both “Deadly Chilli Sauce” and “Bhuty Black Taniwha” are listed as 10/10. All nice and hot! If you’re looking for a chili pepper sauce with a bit, these will deliver. What I enjoyed about these sauce, aside from the taste, was the consistency. Many hot sauce are liquidy, which is fine, but every now and then you want thick sauce that grips your food and fills in the nooks and crannies. These sauces look like they have been freshly processed from your own garden and barely strained. They’re nice and thick and strong on pepper flavor and heat.
