Gator Hammock Lethal Gator Hot Sauce

June 27, 2019

   Gator Hammock is a company from Felda, Florida and since 1989, founder Buddy Taylor has been making delicious, high-quality products. These products are hand-made with all-natural ingredients in order to keep the freshest taste possible! Nearly all his products have earned awards and Buddy has even been featured on the Food Network’s "Food Finds of the Everglades!” His company not only makes hot sauce, but spice rubs, barbecue sauce, and mustard!

   With its fresh blend of a variety of different peppers, along with other classic Louisiana ingredients, the taste of Gator Hammock Lethal Gator is complex. It’s tangy, savoury, and spiced. This makes for a delicious flavour profile that I’m sure almost all of you would enjoy! Louisiana style hot sauce, which is comprised of aged cayenne peppers, distilled vinegar, salt, and xanthan gum works as the base to which all the other ingredients are added. As you can tell from what’s in it, it’s the classic mix! Distilled vinegar also preserves the sauce, adding a rather distinguishable tang. Red habanero peppers, red scotch bonnet peppers, jalapeno peppers, cayenne peppers, as well as crushed red pepper are all in the sauce. Talk about a big variety! This makes for a rather complex pepper flavour which I would best describe as a bit fruity, citrusy, and floral. Water balances out the acidity, saltiness, and consistency of the sauce while the granulated garlic and fresh garlic give this sauce a great zingy flavour. The mildly prominent garlic taste, for me, completes this sauce. Key lime juice also adds a bit of citrusy tang to complement the vinegar and peppers while the salt, along with black pepper and celery seed make this a perfectly seasoned product. The onion powder also adds a lightly sweet savouriness.

   Though I wouldn’t call it a lethal hot sauce, it’s got a pretty decent heat level that one would hope to get from one made with habaneros and scotch bonnets. I would therefore give this one a 5 out of 10 in terms of spiciness. I would recommend it to all of you who enjoy the tangy flavour of Louisiana-style hot sauces with an extra jolt of heat. So, if you can at least kind of handle the heat of the peppers in the sauce, this one should be enjoyable for you as well as your chile head friends and family!

   Enjoy Lethal Gator with Southern U.S., Mexican, and Tex-Mex dishes! It’s got the kind of flavour that can complement so many different cuisines and meals. Add some to your fried chicken, tacos, tofu, rice and beans, slow-cooked meats, seafood boils, fried fish, fajitas, sautéed shrimp or scallops, ham and cheese sandwiches, grilled chicken, slow-cooked black-eyed peas, hummus, veggies, and more!

   Come by one of our store locations and give Gator Hammock Lethal Gator Hot Sauce a try! Don’t worry, it’s not actually lethal!

As always, Keep it spicy!

As seen on past seasons of Hot Ones, Assam was one of the favourites of the guests on the show! To me, there’s no mystery as to why. It’s an expertly crafted product which, to me, stands out among the total of 60 or so hot sauces I have in my fridge currently. It’s THAT GOOD!

Extra wing sauce

Just enough heat, really good Buffalo taste, one of my favorite wingsauce. Give it a try!

Great seasoning

I use this seasoning quite a bit , great stuff.

Not what I expected, but really good!

If I had wrote this review the day I bought this sauce, I probably would have given it a 4-star. But in the last two weeks since I bought this sauce, I’ve learned to really love it. Definitely not what I expected originally. But super happy I got it.

Hotter than expected, good for almost anything you’d expect to use hot-sauce on.

Great sauce! Nice flavour

Bought this sauce with a few others. This sauce is not too hot, the flavours really stand out. The pineapple blends great with the peppers and lime juice. Great taste, not just some heat..

Sauce of summer!

This sauce is amazing! It tastes incredible, smells delicious, and so far has gone great on everything. This sauce screams hot summer day. 10/10 will buy again
