Mic's Chilli Inferno JnrMic’s Chilli comes from Kilcoole, County Wicklow,  in Ireland, Mic visited Belize in 1994 and discovered chillies on returning to Ireland he decided to recreate the delights of hot sauce and after a bit of experimentation Inferno Sauce was created, we are going to review the most mild Jnr version today.

The labeling on there bottles is stunningly detailed and carefully cut, not the normal rectangles for Mic’s sauces, the labels are designed by award winning illustrator Steve Simpson and the range labels evolve from one to the other getting darker and as the heat increases.

On popping open the lid there was an unmistakable aroma of Habanero and Lemon, the sauce is a orange red colour and is slight thickened with Xanthan Gum, once on the spoon, I can smell the red peppers quite distinctly. Now if you got this in a supermarket and it was called a Jnr sauce you would expect it be very mild, but has about the heat level of a Tabasco sauce.

The flavour from the habanero is good, the use distilled vinegar does not over power the sauce which has nice hints of lemon and garlic, this bottle is going down quite quickly, I am looking forward to going up a heat level of two with the next sauce in the range, but that is for a different review.

Ingredients: Water, Distilled Vinegar, Red Pepper, Carrot, Lemon Juice, Onion, 1 Habanero Chilli (3%), Salt Spices, Garlic, Xanthan Gum.

Bottle provided by Mic’s Chilli

This sauce would go great with BBQ chicken the lemon and garlic work well with chicken, the slight saltiness it would also be good on Huevos Rancheros, must admit to having a craving for this now, yumm, off to the kitchen I think.

The Mic’s Chilli website is also well designed and easy to navigate, the only thing I could not find was an on-line shop or  in the impressive list of stockists any on-line stockists where I could send you to order your own bottle, but after a bit of googling I did find www.mymexicanshop.ie where they cost a very reasonable €3.30 in Ireland so expect it to be about £3.00 in the UK
