Spice Island Chilli’s Ghost Ship was reviewed by rapper, TV presenter and chef, Big Zuu in the Guardian this week.  There was a lineup of 15 chilli sauces, including some from Waitrose, M&S Food and Ed Sheeran with Ghost Ship coming equal second with 4 stars.

Ghost Ship is Spice Island’s hottest sauce, with Big Zuu’s amusing reaction “My brain is on fire; I’m rocking through it. It’s good, though.” but if you prefer a gentler heat, then I would go with one of Spice Island’s calmer sauces.  There’s a superb selection and a good guide to help decide how to match your sauce with your food.  Made in Portsmouth and with each bottle reflecting the history of the port city, they make a valuable addition to your kitchen.

All bottles they produce are full of love… Love for the chilli, a passion for the history, gluten free and are vegetarian and vegan friendly.
