Brother Bru Bru’s African Hot Pepper Sauce

Brother Bru Bru’s African Hot Pepper Sauce

Good evening my faithful chilefanz!! How are you all tonight? I have a special sauce review for you all today, its a sauce that contains absolutley no salt!! It was invented by Brother Bru Bru (Bruce Langhorne, the original tambourine man!) who had a love for hot sauces, but in his 50’s during a routine medical examination his doctor revealed that he had a severe case of high blood pressure and was told to lose weight and eat little to no sodium at all!! Bruce was devastated as he really did love his hot sauces, and yet all the ones he liked had a high salt content and thus he could no longer enjoy them. All was not lost however as Bruce started experimenting at home, blending different peppers and spices until finally he came up with the salt free concoction that i am reviewing today, Bruce was pleased as now he had a hot sauce he could enjoy, and he knew others would enjoy it too, and that brings us to where the sauce is today!

Ingredients: Apple Cider Vinegar, Water, Imported and Domestic Peppers, Garlic, and Assorted African Spices.

As you can see from the list above, the ingredients of “Brother Bru Bru’s African Hot Pepper Sauce” are few, and yet the flavours (as I soon discovered) were many! The bottle itself is an industry standard bottle that bears a picture of Bruce on the front, holding up a bottle of the sauce, the name is in nice, bold and black writing on a background of a map of Africa in red!

The label has a very African feel to it, which is something I am pretty sure was intended due to the sauces origins!

The sauce inside is of a pourable consistency and a lovely reddy brown colour with flecks of black running through it, I opened the bottle and gave the sauce the old olfactory once over, and immediately smelled hints of garlic and habanero, the garlic alone got me salivating a little and I decided to skip the spoon and immediately took a good size swig of this sauce, swishing it around before swallowing it and sitting back to let the flavours fully take hold of me!

The flavours were amazing, quite dark and intense, first the strong garlic flavour came through mixed with what tasted like habaneros and scotch bonnetts, either way the pepper taste was fresh and very good for a sauce with no salt content! The lack of salt really allowed this sauce to show off its star qualities present in the garlic and habs.

As I write this review I find myself swigging from the bottle occasionally, as I am doing that I then notice the heat..its a heat that definitely builds but never goes beyond “manageable” which is fantastic as this means that the sauce can be enjoyed by a wide variety of chileheadz, don’t get me wrong, it’ll make you sweat a little but its nothing serious and is actually quite a nice endorphin inducer.

You can grab a bottle of this wonderful sauce over at for a pocket pleasing, credit crunch busting price of £3.99, in fact heres a link directly to it so you can even save the typing!!

Grab a bottle now guys as this is a sauce that has been a best seller at Hot Headz for years and its one of the first sauces they stocked when they started up over 14 years ago!!

Until next time my chile friendz, may the sauce be with you!!
