About the Hot Sauce: This unique chipotle hot sauce was made by hand by Ol' Benito himself with local sourced Vermont produce. The Chipotle Grande hot sauce has a fresh onion and garlic base mixed with a heavy helping of organic chipotles, a bit of organic Vermont maple syrup, and locally grown organic jalapenos. This hot sauce marries the smokiness from chipotle with the freshness from local sourced Vermont produce. This is a must try hot sauce by Benito's!

Maker Story: Ben Maniscalco of Benito's Hot Sauce makes every batch by hand in their tiny commercial kitchen in Northern Vermont. They source over 10,000 pounds of local chili peppers, organic veggies and other farmstead ingredients every year from local Vermont Farms.
Benito's Hot Sauce started out as a hobby in college when the sudden frost came and Ben would mess around and do a lot of cooking. The hot sauce then grew as a part time job, which then grew into a full time job in 2015.
Ben has a ton of experience making hot sauce, sourcing great local produce and building a business You can learn about Benito's story on our interview on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast
