Pasilla Sauce


Umami, smoky, citrusy, earthy.


Put it on stuff.

The Pasilla Sauce (ex-Hot Sauce 02) focuses on the complex flavors of the Pasilla Mixe chili. 

The Pasilla Mixe chilies are showcased in our spirit Ayuuk, with fruity, earthy and smoky flavors, reminiscent of the aromas of the Oaxacan landscape.

Following the maceration in our spirit, the chilies are strained, lacto-fermented and used as a foundation.

Layers of complexity are added; shio koji for umami, beetroot for earthy sweetness, and blackberry for a fruit forward palate.

Acidity from galangal, lemongrass vinegar and baobab flour balances out our Pasilla Sauce.

You got your Pasilla Sauce and wonder what to do with it? Just put it on stuff! Or check out how Karishma Sanghi (Chalo, Copenhagen) uses it in a childhood recipe.
