The General’s Hot Sauce(S) - American Grown, Veteran Owned. 6 fl. Oz. bottles | All natural, gourmet hot sauce gift set in glass grenade bottles with metal dog tag. Made in USA with aged American grown peppers or Vermont maple syrup. Dead Red | Grunt Green | Shock & Awe | Danger Close | Hooah Jalapeno | Maple Mayhem
Made from American-grown, fully ripe red cayenne peppers that are hand-picked, and then salted down and aged until the mash is perfect for conversion and bottling. An all-natural product that is 86% cayenne peppers, this sauce packs an authentic, aged cayenne flavor that will be very different when compared to other sauces that typically have a stronger concentration of vinegar. Dead Red carries a heat that's just a touch hotter than the cheaper "off the shelf" hot sauces, all thanks to its increased pepper content.
Danger Close is a magical blend of red cayenne and orange habanero peppers. We think it's the PERFECT sauce for making buffalo wings--it packs a strong cayenne flavor, but also brings a solid backdoor kicker of habanero heat. While it is a top secret blend of cayenne and habanero, just like the rest of our sauces, they’re all American-grown and 86% of what’s in there is pure pepper goodness. After release, it quickly climbed the ranks to become not only our personal favorite, but our customers' favorite as well. More heat than our classic Dead Red, but it won't melt your brain like a heavy dose of Shock & Awe...at first.
Shock & Awe
Not for the faint of heart. While all of our products are made with taste in mind, being made with 86% American-grown orange habaneros, Shock & Awe brings a solid punch of powerful, sustained heat that is offset by a naturally citrusy aroma and taste. That flavor gets accented by an increased depth of flavor and slight smokiness from our aging process that many of our heat freak fans can’t get enough of. If biting into a habanero doesn’t scare you, then jump right in, but if you don’t want sweating and hopelessly drinking ice water to be a part of your immediate future, we suggest you give Danger Close a try first.
Discovered almost by accident that green cayenne peppers picked just before they turn red can bring a truly unique, tangy, earthy flavor. It still carries that same rich 86% concentration of all-natural, American-grown cayenne peppers. Much of the harvesting of the green peppers happens at the end of the growing season, when these mature, perfectly balanced (but somewhat stubborn) peppers decide to stay green. Most vintages of Grunt Green carry a heat that’s just a touch milder than Dead Red.
HOOAH Jalapeño is our newest offering and our mildest sauce, carefully blended from precisely aged, American-grown jalapeno peppers. HOOAH Jalapeño carries a mild heat profile that adds a salty, almost pickle-like bite that can be used anywhere. We love it on tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and (our favorite) scrambled eggs. If you want rich pepper flavor with just a casual hint of heat, you found the right product.
This all-natural, habanero-infused maple syrup, the perfect balance of sweet and heat, is made from the highest quality ingredients. Vermont's maple trees provide the sweet, and our lightly salted, sun-dried ground habanero pepper mash provides the heat. Use your imagination with Maple Mayhem: maple-glazed salmon, chicken and waffles, grilled brussel sprouts, or caramelized pork chops; the possibilities are endless. It should be refrigerated after opening.
