Uber popular hot sauce brand, Tabañero, a company that specializes in 100% all-natural gourmet hot sauce products, announces the first expansion into new flavored products. Known for its gourmet and non-vinegar based hot sauce and Bloody Mary Mix, Tabañero is expanding its product library to include flavors geared towards Chili Heads who crave extra hot as well as hot sauce lovers who are looking for a little sweet with their spice.
For Chili Heads who love the all-natural flavors of Tabañero Hot Sauce but are looking for some extra heat, Tabañero has created a bolder version of the original product with Tabañero Extra Hot. Same flavorful ingredients, twice the spice with more Habañero Peppers added to the recipe.
Taking the hot sauce experience in a new direction, Tabañero Agave Sweet & Spicy brings a new flavor component to the brand. Featuring a decadent blend of Tabañero spices and agave nectar, Tabañero Agave Sweet & Spicy incorporates a subtlety sweet flavor with a slight chipotle kick.
"Tabanero began as a passion project of simply creating a delicious and flavorful hot sauce, made with fresh and all natural ingredients," said Tabañero's CEO Jeff Perlman. "We wanted to stay true to our roots using the highest quality ingredients while creating new flavors that would appeal to a broader audience, whether their looking to turn up the heat or looking to add a little sweetness with a kick," said Tabañero's Danny Vitelli, who took the culinary lead in creating the new flavors.
Considered "Good enough to drink by the bottle" by John Kelly of the Houston Press, Tabañero Hot Sauce got its start in the fertile fields of Mexico's Tabasco region. The gourmet hot sauce is free of vinegar taste and features a unique blend of wholesome ingredients including red habanero peppers, carrots and key lime juice paired with a "secret" ingredient, agave nectar, which balances the heat of the habaneros and adds a hint of sweetness.
About Tabañero Hot Sauce:
Released to the market in early 2011 and described as a passion project by co-founder Kevin Peake, who explains how he and his team sold Tabañero out of the back of their cars for the first year. Tabañero Hot Sauce is firmly rooted in its humble beginnings and is committed to giving back a portion of its proceeds to the Tabasco region of Mexico where their journey began. Tabañero is a very unique hot sauce made from all-natural ingredients from Tabasco, Mexico, situated on the exotic Yucatán Peninsula. Taking a clue from the Mayans (who occupied the Yucatán Peninsula thousands of years ago and were one of the first civilizations to use peppers to flavor their native cuisine) the Tabañero Hot Sauce team, in 2007, began to utilize the fertile crops of the area to design the first recipe of the future award-winning hot sauce.
Today Tabañero Hot Sauce is available online and is distributed in six states by both Sysco and US FOODS and can be found in restaurants, specialty stores and now H-E-B Grocery stores, over 30 Pepper Palace locations and most recently in Sprouts Stores across the country. Products include: Tabañero Hot Sauce in 5oz, 8oz and one gallon sizes. Tabañero has also expanded its product line to include a unique and natural (gluten free) Tabañero Bloody Mary Mix sold in a 32oz bottle. Most recently, the brand has now expanded to include an Extra Hot and Agave Sweet & Spicy flavors which are both sold in 8oz. bottles.
