Melinda’s hot sauce is quality. We are for those who are past the basic. We’re for a community that appreciates variety and flavor just as much as they do heat. From seed to bottle, we focus on the important things: each of our 32 craft pepper sauces begins with the fresh ingredients and the chile peppers on the planet. This is the melinda’s way, anyone can strike a match, but few can strike a balance. A balance where heat and flavor find themselves on equal footing.
The Habanero (Capsicum chinense) is the hottest chile pepper in the world, measuring between 200, 000 and 300, 000 Scoville Units (the hottest jalapeno measures only 5000 S.U.) Pepper connoisseurs the world over consider it to be the finest variety known to man. Using only the highest quality ingredients, Melinda’s blends fresh carrots, onions, garlic, and a hint of lime juice with the Habanero. The result is a pepper sauce that harmonizes heat and flavor without the overpowering pungency found in traditional vinegar-based hot sauces. Melinda’s vegetable base allows you to spice your food without drowning out the original flavor.
