At first glance, Ruby Rebelle resembles a familiar Louisiana-style vinegar hot sauce. But subtle complexities quickly set this defiant gem apart from the classic main streams. The infusion of barrel-aged bourbon take the initial tang on a delicately sweet and aromatic ride — awakening receptors and deliciously lingering thanks to traces of garlic and spice. It warms rather than singes, showcasing its nuanced flavor over heat. Ruby Rebelle makes wings, eggs and veggies somehow more vibrant without dominating their identity. This permits more liberal dashing for those craving more heat... but with a lot more soul! (Apologies to you, Crystal and Tabasco...)
Never had a hot sauce like it ever. Perfect hot without masking such an interesting blend of other flavors. I use it in empanadas, stir fry, Korean lettuce wraps.
TONS of flavor with a perfect balance of heat. I'd eat this on anything.
Right off the bat, Ruby Rebelle takes me back to Louisiana and spicy foods smelling of vinegar, cayenne, garlic, and a hint of bourbon. An initial bite of this ruby beauty brings a medium vinegar, followed by a silky sweetness from turbinado and light bourbon. Cayenne peppers at a touch of heat and flavor to the mix, ending in a mild garlic linger. Louisiana style hot sauce makes people think of Tabasco. This bottle takes Tabasco and slaps it in the face with flavor and depth. If you enjoy a vinegar forward sauce that isn't vinegar water, you will love this beauty.
I use this on everything from eggs to grilled chicken. It's got a great FLAVOR and the heat does not overpower the taste. Wonderful balance. It's replaced Sriracha on my table!

Bayou Gotham hot sauces dance on the taste buds with familiar flavors that aren't always associated with hot sauce. Inspired by Louisiana traditions such as the crawfish boil, these sauces certainly bring the character of the bayou to the Big Apple.

Awesome, delicious and visually stunning hot sauce. Being a fan of great (and bold) flavors, your sauce speaks directly to my culinary soul... thank you. You’ve made you yourself a fan.

Bayou Bourré — How you were able to bottle that flavor is beyond me. It’s so tasty and has been a huge hit at my office. You have created something truly special here.
Flambeau Fiya — outstanding mix of taste and heat. Useful for everyday use, including chili, sandwiches, etc. It has enough heat without overpowering the taste. This is a winner! Great job on creating something different.

Bayou Bourré is very reminiscent of the crawfish boil. I love it — a very worthy replacement for remoulade or cocktail sauce. The heat builds very nice through about 2 tbsp on boiled shrimp. You have won me over!
Smoked salmon & poached egg on English is my favorite breakfast. For many years, Cholula was its constant and beloved companion. No longer. My heart now belongs to Bayou Gotham. Thank you hot sauce gods for bringing this new joy to my life.
I’ve tried all kinds of different sauces — all claiming to be great or whatever. I tried so many I actually considered just giving up. I guess I’m a sauce snob. Then along comes [Juju Guru] pineapple jalapeño. I don’t know if you’ve seen “When Harry Met Sally”, but there’s a famous scene with Meg Ryan in the diner... yeah, it was that good. Best sauce on the market hands down. I wish they came in bigger bottles, but I’ll just have to buy in bulk. Thank you for putting out such a great product.
