MORT

The 2016 version of Mort is now available from Grim Reaper Foods this year there are 66 bottles available and they normally sell out before I have even had time to surf the web.

Grim Reaper Foods – Mort 2016 Ltd. Edition Scorpion Chilli Sauce

This year the pepper are Red Scorpion from Chris Saunders and Glenn from Glenn’s Peppers. The Scorpion is a horrific beast that while not as hot as the Carolina Reaper, still comes in at around 1.5 million Scovile units.

Russ has sent me a special sample bottle just for tasking, I also have a bottle for my collection oddly numbered 67 of 66 with a little smiley face :-). Looking at the ingredients, this looks like a very classic style of sauce with most of my favourite ingredients, Garlic, Red Wine vinegar and Tomatoes, I am a big devotee of using red wine vinegar in cooking and it works so well with chillies.

The smell from the bottle is intoxicating, and I quickly find this is not a sauce to be taken lightly when you have had a cold and the aroma hits the back of my throat there is only one thing for it, out with the tasting spoon and off we go.

The heat is searing and the coughing starts followed by the hickups, as the heat starts to cool, which take a lot longer that I was expecting, I can taste the garlic, then a little of the tomato just makes its self known, a second slight smaller spoonful and things are returning to normal, the other flavour start to appear.

Ingredients:- Plum Tomatoes, Red Wine Vinegar, Scorpion Chillies, Shallots, Garlic, Sugar, Tomato Puree, Salt, Rapeseed Oil.

Limited editions are a great fun idea, but unfortunately I suspect many will never get tasted, which is a shame, as this is a really great sauce, at only £6.95 for a 100 ml bottle of such a unique collectors item, I must admit it would be a shame to open a bottle with such a neat wax seal.

So I feel extra special being one of the few with a bottle I can enjoy and one I can save in my collection.

Grim Reaper Foods
Today, brings the unleashing of the Grim Reaper Foods – 2015’s MORT limited edition hot sauce, made with Scorpion Morouga peppers grown here in the UK by chilehead Chris Saunders! This is the third MORT, in 2013 it sold out in 8 days, last year however, it sold out in just over 2 hours. Today it goes no sales at 9PM GMT.

Bottles are numbered and signed. The first 10 bottles will go out numbered 1-10 to the first 10 orders, after that they are random. If you order up to 3 and you are in the first 10, your order qualifies for one of the first 10, the other two bottles will be random. If you would like a specific number (NOT first 10) just request it, however it isn’t guaranteed as many requests come through-it must be on your order in the notes ection. Jees, so many rules….Big rule-MAX 3 bottles per household, orders for more will be cancelled im afraid..
