If your loved one keeps mini packets of hot sauce in their bag, if they dot the stuff on every meal, if their spice tolerance is completely unrivaled, they need one of these gift sets in their life.
Made in Portland
Unlike most gift sets, these popular artisanal hot sauces made in Portland, Oregon come in full 8 oz. bottles, so they’ll last through far more than one or two meals. The habanero gets a sweet smokiness from roasted tomatoes, the heat of the Jamaican jerk blend is tempered by a splash of dark rum and the black bean and garlic sauce steps up any stir-fry.
Handmade in Brooklyn
These flora-and-fauna-inspired 2 oz. bottles contain three sauces that range from mild (jalapeno, tequila and lime) to very hot (habanero and black coffee). Bonus: They will look incredibly chic sitting on your kitchen table.
From Very Mild to Fiery Hot
True hot sauce fiends know that it’s the flavor of the hot sauce, not necessarily the level of heat, that matters. This set of seven boasts a mild chipotle pepper that still packs a bold, smoky taste, and increases in spice to the burn-your-mouth-off ghost pepper blend.
Travel the World
This is an exciting gift for any hot sauce aficionado—and easy for you to send, since it comes in a gift box which you can personalize with a custom message. It’s important to note that these sauces are inspired by flavors from all over the world, and don’t actually come from the exotic locales. Still, we like that this set gives the recipient the chance to try a new sauce every day for a month.
