Are there any artificial ingredients?
Only one of our hot sauces, BAYOU BOURRÉ, lists “Crab Boil Concentrate” as one of its many ingredients. Crab Boil Concentrate sub-ingredients are: water, polysorbate 80, extractives of: red pepper, bay, clove, black pepper, thyme, marjoram, artificial spice flavors. Otherwise, we do not use artificial ingredients in our hot sauces.
How long does your hot sauce last?
Opened bottles of hot sauces that contain vinegar, chili peppers, and citric acids (such as lemon juice) as key ingredients usually last 3 to 5 years when refrigerated. Unopened bottles could last even longer.
Bayou Gotham® Hot Sauces have additional fruits and veggies inside, so while the vinegar, chili peppers, and citrus will help it keep for awhile, those additional elements will spoil at some point. We highly recommend refrigerating any hot sauce for prolonged enjoyment.
Does BAYOU BOURRÉ Louisiana Boil Hot Sauce contain shellfish?
No. We’ve captured the “essence of a seafood boil” without using shellfish, nor seafood stock.
Is BAYOU BOURRÉ Louisiana Boil a replacement for Crab Boil?
No. All Bayou Gotham® Hot Sauces are condiments that should be used as “finishing sauces”. Emptying BAYOU BOURRÉ into a a huge pot of boiling water would be a waste of a delicious sauce that you can put on seafood, poboys, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, and wings!
Does RUBY REBELLE Bourbon Cayenne contain alcohol?
No. Since alcohol evaporates at 172°F (78°C), any sauce or stew that is simmering or boiling evaporates the alcohol.
