Hot Sauce Review: Pat and Pinky's Original Wiri Wiri Pepper Sauce

Updated: Dec 3, 2019

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Heat:🔥🔥 Origin: Guyana but made in the UK. Produced in the UK but inspired by the flavours of Guyana @PatandPinkys are new to the scene. Or so their website suggests anyway, with everything seemingly 'coming soon'. Let's see what they have to offer!

_ 👁 It's certainly well presented. I like the medicine bottle idea. Anything that sets you apart even slightly in a market as saturated as the hot sauce one is a good thing. The design of the label is simple and modern but tasteful. It doesn't scream Guyana to me though. Maybe that wasn't the point... _ 👃 It teases with a strong smell of thyme and fresh cucumber, resembling a more fresh version of an Italian cooking sauce. Interested to see what the tastebuds have to say. _ 👅 Ok so a little heavy on the thyme there and the rest of the flavours don't really punch as much as I would want them to... maybe due to the fact that the first ingredient is water. Following that you get a little hint of sweetness with a decent dose of salt for good measure. The spice itself feels like a bit of an after thought, just a tingle but not at all unpleasant, I'd personally make it more of a feature. Those rather important things aside it's a bold attempt at being different and I respect that. A savoury sauce with a lot of potential after a little tweaking. _ 👫 This would work well with pizza. The pungent herbal flavours and fruity undertone would go really well with anything italian. Even if it is inspired by the tastes of Guyana. _ 🍕 It's a nice chunky little number. Good for a scoop more than a dip as it doesn't adhere itself massively well to anything, but that's expected when things are all natural.
