Evening Standard – Best Hot Sauces
Best Hot Sauce

The Smokey Carter sauces were recently featured in an article by the Evening Standard on their quest to search out the best hot sauces from around the world. The sauce in the hot seat was our Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce. They gave it a heat rating 6 out of 10. We’re not really one of these companies that blow your head off so thats hot enough for me! They did say our sauce was “the best-tasting of the bunch.” and “The scotch bonnet is surely one of the world’s tastiest peppers – and The Smokey Carter has done it proud.”

They also sampled our Carolina BBQ Sauce and said “it’s utterly divine.”. Can’t get better than that for a review of our sauces! See the full write up on our sauces below;

We were up against some stiff competition so hearing that ours was the best tasting of the bunch is awesome! Our competitors included Dorset Chilli Shop, Tan Rosie, Bonnie Sauce Co, Original Juan, Noel’s, Sauce Shop and Daves Gourmet!

Heres the full write up!

The Smokey Carter – Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce

Best for: sweet and spicy wings

Heat rating: 6/10

Our testers rated this glorious scotch bonnet sauce from Mancunian maker The Smokey Carter as the best-tasting of the bunch.

It works especially well as a marinade for meat or veg, with a honey-sweet, tropical favour that gives way to a slightly bitter aftertaste and a lasting heat that veritably needles away at the tongue. 

The scotch bonnet is surely one of the world’s tastiest peppers – and The Smokey Carter has done it proud.

On a somewhat milder note, we highly recommend trying The Smokey Carter’s Carolina BBQ Sauce too – it’s utterly divine.
