About the Sauce: A classic fire-roasted hot sauce that ranks high among my favorites. This sauce was originally made as a finishing sauce for sushi at his parent's seafood restaurant. This fire-roasted hot sauce brings so much smoky habanero heat and flavor that is a great addition to almost anything.
Uses: This sauce was Char Man Brand's first hot sauce and was originally made for adding to sushi. Some fans drink it straight from the bottle, but we also recommend pizza, eggs and sandwiches!
Ingredients: Distilled Vinegar, Hot Peppers or Chiles, Cane Sugar, Lemon Juice, Dried Garlic, Dried Onion, Salt, Pepper, Xanthan Gum and Spices.
Size: 5 oz Bottle
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.
