The Chilli Factory - Fiery Frillneck Hiss

This sauces comes all the way from Australia and has won a number of awards in its home country including 1st prize for Best Hot Sauce Tomato in the Australian Fiery Food Awards in August 2004 as well as a handful of 2nd and 3rd places in other events.

On opening the 240ml bottle there is a sweet smell of Smoke & Tomatoes, the sauce is a deep red colour with flecks of herbs and chilli seeds floating in the mix.

Ingredients: Tomato (71%), Chilli (12%), Water, Natural Smoke Flavour (4%), Balsamic Vinegar, Sugar, Salt, Garlic, Herbs & Spices.

This is a surprisingly hot sauce, I am used to getting bottles of sauces with manufacturer’s ratings much higher than they deserve, and this one rated 9/10, while it is not that hot, it is not ketchup.

The first taste is of smoke, which hits the back of the throat with a thud, then a bit of tomato flavour followed by the heat and garlic, on its own the sauces is a little over smoked, but when added to a barbequed burger it really hits the spot.

Initially I did not like this sauce, the smoke is very strong, but the Tomato and Chilli, Balsamic and Garlic soon work their magic and I have now getting used to the smoke and really enjoying the tingling on my lips.

At £4.95 a bottle this is not cheap, but you get a lot of flavour for your money and the smoke just needs to be toned down by adding it to food and not swigging directly from the bottle.

This sauce is made by The Chilli Factory (www.thechillifactory.com) and is imported by Producers and Purveyors Ltd (www.producersandpurveyors.com) and can be purchased either online or via one of their stockiest.
