Chilli Devil Smoked Chilli Sauce with Red Wine

Chilli Devil Smoked Chilli Sauce with Red Wine

This is the first product we have had to review from Chilli Devil Sauces, based in Hull, Ian Ibbetson has been making sauces for his Family and friends for over 30 years, he has been growing his own chillies for the past 10 years, and then in 2009 with time on his hands Ian started developing his range and then in 2010 he started selling at local markets. Expansion is planned and Ian is now looking for some retail outlets.

This sauce is includes a trio of chillies:-  Ancho, Chipotle and Habaneros, and I am looking forward to tasting this, as I open the bottle I can smell a combination of tomatoes and red wine with hints of garlic. I love cooking and red wine is always on tap in my kitchen, it is great for adding depth to chilli based dishes.

The sauce has an instant rich flavour from the tomatoes and red wine, closely followed by the warmth from the combination of chillies, It is smoky and warming, the molasses is not over done, it can often turn a sauce in to sticky sweet mess. I can instantly see myself using this well crafted sauce to enhance a chile or even better in a bacon roll for lunch (Must be nearly lunch time soon).

Ingredients: Crushed Tomato (Tomato, Citric Acid), Red Wine, Blackstrap Molasses, Chillies, Garlic, Salt.

For the first product we have reviewed from Ian, it is very good sauce to start with, and we have his best seller to come the intriguing sounding sauce “Plum, Port & Habanero Sauce” I have a collection of fine ports it is one of my few weakness (There are lots really).

There is a little work to do with the packaging before this becomes a retail product, but this is only minor stuff. At £3.99 for a 8oz/225ml bottle you are getting good value for money.

I have enjoyed tasting and reviewing this sauce, what is left will not last long…….
