When you choose the 3-bottle monthly option, your first box will include 2 sauces and a mini-tasting notebook.

Let’s check out the July 2016 Fuego Box!
The bottles were shipped in a bright red box protected by a bubble mailer to ensure that everything stayed in tact during transit.
A peek inside!
An info card listed all of the sauces, as well as a little background info on each one and suggestions on how to best enjoy them.
Gold Coast Original Fatalii Hot Sauce – A handmade hot sauce produced in small batches in Charleston, South Carolina. It features locally grown garlic, onions, and bell peppers. The highlight of the sauce is the white fatalii pepper, which gives it a unique citrusy flavor. Try it on tacos, in curry, or channa masala.
Nam Prik Chili Sauce – Nam Prik — or fluid chili — features “a remarkable blend of authentic Asian flavor, strong aromatic components, and a spicy edge”. It’s based on the founder’s old family recipe and includes vinegar, garlic, fish sauce, and thai chilis. Best enjoyed on fried rice, scrambled eggs, roasted meats, mojitos, and more.
Hotmaple Smokey Habanero – Ooh! I think this one is going to be my favorite of the bunch. This sauce is handcrafted in Portland, Oregon using all natural ingredients including fresh habaneros and grade A dark maple syrup. Try it on stir fry, brussels sprouts, salmon, and more.
