About the Sauce: Caribbean style hot sauces tend to be citrusy and peppery and Char Man creates a perfect balance of these elements. The tasty sweetness comes from pineapple juice and mangos and then there's a rising fruity pepper burn from Manzano, Guero and Habanero chilis. This sauce has a wonderful texture that is an exciting sauce to spice up your meals.
Uses: Toss this Caribbean hot sauce in a marinate for shrimp or chicken. A great addition to fish and salads as well.

Maker Story: Chris Sutton is the creator and cook behind Char Man Brand Hot Sauces. Chris grew up in his families seafood restaurant that opened when he was 8 years old. He was always in the kitchen or behind the sushi bar creating recipes, in his early 20’s I became obsessed with hot sauce.
A few years later he started making his own hot sauces and the Char Man Original was initially used as a finishing sauce on a sushi roll. The sauce became popular with customers requesting to take it home. In 2006, Chris asked his friend who is an artist to design me a label where they paid homage to the legend of the Char Man on Ojai, CA. Listen to Chris' full story on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast.
