Cleetus Heatus Hot Sauces

Cleetus Heatus Hot Sauces are made with fresh, all natural ingredients, and no preservatives. As the pepper mash cooks, we slowly add a fine drinking bourbon allowing for maximum flavor melding. The first, Bourbon Serrano, combines the spicy zip of serrano pepper with the subtle sweetness of bourbon for a flavorful, medium spice. The second, Bourbon Habanero, turns up the heat with well-proportioned habanero, allowing the combining flavors of tomato, bourbon, and lime to dance across the palette.

"I took the Bloody Mary mix over to share with my booze & brunch-loving neighbors one Saturday morning. The overwhelming response was that they all said it tasted just like a homemade mix. The bottle did not last very long at all."
