Bacchanal Sauce is a fiery gourmet food company that celebrates the passion of the Caribbean with flavor packed condiments made with exotic tropical ingredients. It is the home of Bacchanal Pepper Sauce, the unique handcrafted hot sauce made with island flavor & perfect heat! A delightful Caribbean hot sauce which allows chefs and home cooks to become the life of the party. It brightens and enhances every meal with each fiery drop! We're not about being hot for the sake of it, delicious hot sauce is the mantra. A powerhouse of tropical ingredients, melded together to make tasters and bystanders start grooving to that hot Caribbean beat. It is the brainchild of a Brooklyn girl with Caribbean roots & grew out of a passion for pepper and a deep abiding love for rich unique flavors. Brooklyn made, Caribbean hot.
As an artisan condiment maker, I wanted to create the best Caribbean style hot sauce. An all-natural pepper sauce that friends could stash away at work or home which could brighten up lunch time blues. In the Caribbean we are big on flavor so it was important to me that the sauce was complex and delicious with the perfect amount of heat and I truly believe that Bacchanal Pepper Sauce is just that, the most delicious hot sauce elixir, this side of the equator. I love when people come to me and say I don’t really like hot sauces but your Bacchanal Pepper Sauce is amazing! - Sonya, Founder & Head Sauce Maker
In the Caribbean a Bacchanal is a hot island fete and we capture the taste, excitement and passion of a real Caribbean Bacchanal. We believe in the bounty of nature, that’s why Bacchanal Pepper Sauce is the only Brooklyn hot sauce which is hand made in small batches & contains the perfect mix of all-natural Caribbean fruits, herbs and spices, allowing the hot fruitiness of our scotch bonnet & habanero peppers to really come alive. A true celebration of people, flavor and heat. It’s truly that simple if you believe in celebrating those people you love with a great time, good food & amazing flavor, join the Bacchanal!
What’s a Bacchanal anyway?
In a true Bacchanal revelers abound, listening to sweet music and dancing until the sun comes up (and then back down for that matter!). It's also sometimes used as a verb, link us on Instagram or Facebook and we'll tell you more about that island vernacular! For now get our hand-crafted artisanal hot sauce and revel with your own piece of the Caribbean.
“I gave one of the bottles to a friend from work. He loved it!”
“…I made a fabulous steak and potatoes using your pepper sauce
tonight! it was delicious, great job!”
The Scotch Bonnet pepper also known as Caribbean Red pepper, Ball of fire, or Boabs Bonnet, is the star of our Bacchanal Pepper Sauce along with habanero and cayenne peppers. The Scotch Bonnet variety of chili pepper are found mainly in the Caribbean islands, the Maldives and West Africa. Most Scotch Bonnets have a heat rating of 100,000–350,000 Scoville Units (Hot). They generally come in a green, yellow or bright red hue. Sometimes when making our Bacchanal Pepper sauce we find a few unique tri-colored beauties in the batch. Our good luck charms!
It's never just about the heat for us. Our goal is not to make the hottest hot sauce. It's about amazing flavor! There are other sauces out there whose only reason for existence is to burn your head off. We enjoy that sensation too but more importantly we love amazing food and wow flavor. Unlike simple ghost pepper or habanero hot sauces our Bacchanal Pepper Sauce is a fresh hot sauce bursting with unique ingredients such as tamarind, lime and papaya with the perfect amount of fire. Savor your island vacation in a bottle.
We love the Caribbean, the flavors, the people, the beaches. However, we have an equal soft spot for Brooklyn and it's rich history of Caribbean migrants. It's an incredibly diverse borough with a great personality; from the magnitude of the Brooklyn Museum to the amazing restaurants tucked away in every enclave, we believe Brooklyn is a slice of paradise on this side of the equator. We love being a part of the indie food scene and Brooklyn Maker culture. Bacchanal Sauce is for those who appreciate good food, wonderful flavors and in some small way it's our gift to Brooklyn. Enjoy!
