NEW from Hook & Arrow

NEW from Hook & Arrow

In addition to making hot sauces under our own brand, we've quietly been working on a few things behind the scenes. One such project that we're happy to announce is that we had the opportunity to develop a new hot sauce for Medicine In Bad Places. For the past 18 years, MIBP has provided hands-on medical training for first responders. Their various domains of expertise include tactical operations, mass casualty/fatality incidents, counterterrorism efforts, and complex rescue missions.   

MIBP reached out to us because they were interested in expanding their merch offerings. After meeting MIBP founder and chief instructor, Shawn Soler, we immediately knew this was a partnership for us. We spent some time talking with their team gathering information and learning what was important for them in a hot sauce. Based on that conversation we got to work in the kitchen developing a new take on mild to medium, everyday hot sauce with bold flavors. We wanted to layer the heat in this sauce so we used a combination of aged cayenne and habanero peppers. Along with vinegar, we used onion, garlic, and black pepper to add some depth. To round out the flavor and bring it all together we threw in some sun-dried tomatoes. The sun-dried tomatoes bring so much complexity to this sauce, they have the perfect amount of sweetness and a lot of depth of flavor. 

The final sauce we developed for MIBP is called Sun-Dried Tomato & Cayenne. It’s a full bodied, full flavor hot sauce. With a heat rating of 2 out of 5, it’s approachable to everyone who enjoys hot sauce. Thick in consistency, similar to a BBQ sauce it will coat your food and will not run off and it pairs particularly well with red meat but it is universal enough to pair with nearly anything you want to spice up.
