From the Pirate's mouth:
As a Scottish sea spirit still sailing the waves of time, I'm pleased to announce that me pirate sauce is now available to ye masses.
It still has that same fresh taste and spicy aroma that I brewed up in me galley many passages ago. Anterior to ice boxes and with meager supplies, food aboard a ship could be wretchedly stale, smelly and rank. But a Captain needs healthy, happy mates to sail his vessel and to stave off any mutinous thoughts. Luckily, I had sailed among the spice islands and discovered the flavorful treasures thriving in the natural flora. I harvested seeds, roots and berries to deliver to the galleys of the world, starting with me own. Thereby, I brewed a pepper sauce with a savory spice to flavor the food rations and to stimulate hearty appetites for the crusty crew. I'm pleased to report that me culinary creation was a success since me mates put it on everything! Plus, I never caught wind of any disgruntled mutineers or murderous plots concerning me neck-- I'm just not sure if it was for me skills as a Captain or a Cook. Whichever, I'm delighted to learn that me tasty treasure can now be discovered in a food port near you.

This sauce is excellent - I've been using it for awhile and I am thrilled to see it partnered with Cheeky Spices! The perfect balance of heat and flavor - this is a unique, delicious and home grown bonus to nearly any meal! Great on everything savory, especially scrambled eggs, any kind of potatoes, and a perfect way to spice up your boring pandemic rice & beans.
This is our new favorite hot sauce in a house filled with lovers of hot sauce.
We at Tios have been preaching and practicing the ideals of local food since our inception in 1986. Well it doesn't get more local than this! (M'HARRRG) Habanero-Coriander (Pirate) Sauce is made by one of our prep cooks under his label of Crows Nest Foods. Some of you may know Jefferson from his years around Ann Arbor. Don't mistake this for bias (because) this is one great sauce. Coriander is a subtle. aromatic spice on the nose. It has a wonderful citrusy flavor that welcomes the heat of the bright orange habaneros. This sauce has some kick! I would put it at 7 out of 10 on the heat index. Great alone or as a cooking additive, its available here at Tios and some of your favorite local fine food markets.
I met Jeff (the owner) at the farmer's market here in Ann Arbor about 3 years ago, when he first came out with the sauce and, since I like to support local vendors, I bought it. And then came back the next week and bought more. then found it in local stores and bought it for friends and family as gifts. I have two bottles in my fridge now (they won't last long) and I figured I should probably carry this product, since I feel it really fits in with the Cheeky Spices personality and what we stand for. There are no allergens in this sauce. It tastes amazing. And it's locally made. Enjoy!
