Empress Ghost Pepper Maqaw Hot Sauce
Empress makes naturally fermented hot sauces with hand-selected Taiwanese chili peppers and produce.
Inspired by the famous Taiwanese Sweet Potato & Floral Maqaw Peppers from Taidong, Empress's hottest sauce pairs ghost peppers with Maqaw, an indgenous Taiwan spice, and grapefruit. The hot, bright flavors are tempered by the silky caramelization of sweet potatoes for a perfect balance and body. The spice level is moderate, not the hot hot hot usually associated with ghost pepper.
Made with locally grown Taiwan Chilis and Maqaw Pepper.
Made and bottled in small batches in Taiwan.
