Windward West Indian Hot Pepper Sauce

Post 7 of 9

For me this is almost a perfect heat for a table sauce

Windward’s Indian Hot Pepper Sauce is a blinder!  The sauce has a traditional Caribbean pepper sauce flavour that you may have tried before with sauces such as Baron and Encona, very fruity, quite sharp, but with an undercurrent of mellow thyme.


Heat wise it’s one to watch since the flavour punch comes way before the heat, and then as you digest the heat quickly creeps up with you and will leave your tongue and lips stinging.  For me this is almost a perfect heat for a table sauce.


This is one of those sauces that really wakes your tastebuds up, and is great with most foods.  I have it parked on my desk at work, and regularly add it to whatever I have for lunch – whether it be sandwiches, salads, or egg tortilla.


Perhaps not the most unusual or original sauce, but it’s certainly one to keep an eye out for.

A cheapy shop in Stroud, Gloucestershire called ‘Home Bargains’. They do lots of end-of-line products so I’d imagine it’s being phased out, which is a shame.

Fantastic sauce. A real pity if they are to be phased out so I hope that is untrue.

@geoff: the heat has DEFINITELY intensified it came as a shock to me at first but now I dispense accordingly and I swear it tastes better. Might have to invest and stock up a years worth! :-D

Dear Sir/Madam,

Well, what can I say? I’m something of a fanatic for
hot pepper sauces, and, indeed, over the years, I’ve
spent a considerable amount of research and money on

Your product “Windward West Indian Style Hot Pepper
Sauce” simply beats everything hands down.
Not vinegary, not overly salty, just the right
texture, and the heat – which is not for the
fainthearted I’ll admit – is perfection.

My only source in Dundee (goodness knows why)for this
product is “Home Bargains”. Why it’s not dominating
the shelves of Tesco or Asda I’ll never know.

Anyway, I heard a rumour that this product was being
discontinued – please confirm otherwise, as, with
17 bottles in my cupboard, I haven’t any more space
for storage.

Kindest regards,


Good afternoon Ewan.

Product is not delisted so take heart.
I am pleased you are enjoying our Hot Pepper Sauce.
