Tabañero Hot Sauce, a 100% all-natural gourmet hot sauce is now being carried in over 155 H-E-B locations throughout the state of Texas.

Considered “Good enough to drink by the bottle” by John Kelly of the Houston Press, Tabañero Hot Sauce got its start in the fertile fields of Mexico’s Tabasco region. The gourmet hot sauce is free of vinegar taste and features a unique blend of wholesome ingredients including red habanero peppers, carrots and key lime juice paired with a “secret” ingredient, agave nectar, which balances the heat of the habaneros and adds a hint of sweetness.

“We’re thrilled to now be carried in over 155 H-E-B locations,” said Tabañero’s Kevin Peake.  “Texans really know their hot sauce, so to be welcomed into their community is quite an honor. Tabañero has been extremely well received in the restaurant sector with over 1,000 restaurants carrying our product. We’re very excited to finally be available in retail and looking forward to turning up the heat in the hot sauce world with our amazing line of products.”

Tabañero Hot Sauce was created with one simple goal in mind, create the most flavorful all natural hot sauce in the world.   Three years after the first hot sauce was bottled, Tabañero remains a small company but with a growing reach. Currently distributed by the two largest food distributors, US FOODS and Sysco, a thriving Ecommerce business and now in H-E-B stores across Texas, Tabañero Hot Sauce is making its way onto restaurant and kitchen tables across the country.

About Tabañero Hot Sauce:

Released to the market in early 2011 and described as a passion project by co-founder Kevin Peake, who explains how he and his team sold Tabañero out of the back of their cars for the first year. Tabañero Hot Sauce is firmly rooted in its humble beginnings and is committed to giving back a portion of its proceeds to the Tabasco region of Mexico where their journey began.  Tabañero is a very unique hot sauce made from all-natural ingredients from Tabasco, Mexico, situated on the exotic Yucatán Peninsula. Taking a clue from the Mayans (who occupied the Yucatán Peninsula thousands of years ago and were one of the first civilizations to use peppers to flavor their native cuisine) the Tabañero Hot Sauce team, in 2007, began to utilize the fertile crops of the area to design the first recipe of the future award-winning hot sauce.

 

Today Tabañero Hot Sauce is available online and is distributed in six states by both Sysco and US FOODS and can be found in restaurants, specialty stores and now H-E-B Grocery stores across Texas.  Products include:  Tabañero Hot Sauce in 5oz, 8oz and one gallon sizes.  Tabañero has also expanded its product line to include a unique and natural (gluten free) Tabañero Bloody Mary Mix sold in a 32oz bottle.  More products are expected to debut in 2015 along with a specialty Tabañero cookbook created by resident Chef Blue Lieberman.
