The Last Dab: Apollo joins the Hot Ones lineup as the new king of Mt. Scoville. A hero of hot sauces, and crusher of celebrities and chilli heads alike. The Apollo Pepper has been carefully bred and nurtured by Smokin’ Ed Currie of PuckerButt Pepper Co. Bred from prized strains of his famed Carolina Reaper and Pepper X. The Apollo brings this heritage to new heights of capsaicin, packing a more concentrated punch than any of its forebears.
The flavour of The Apollo comes from the sweetness of Carolina Reaper, tinged with the earthiness of Pepper X – it’s a culinary powerhouse. The heat profile of The Apollo Pepper is akin to having your head slowly lit aflame. You feel the fire consume your entire skull, your tongue smoulders, burning tears pour from your eyes. And then, five minutes later, the ride is over, your heart rate returns to normal, the panic subsides. This pepper is like no other.
The Last Dab: Apollo is the only sauce in the world made with the Apollo Pepper. This sauce is made from only The Apollo Pepper and very little vinegar. The pepper takes three forms in this sauce: fresh peppers, dried peppers, and distilled pepper oil (made using CO2 extraction, similar to how the highest quality essential oils are made).
Ingredients: The Apollo Pepper, Distilled Vinegar, The Apollo Pepper Powder, The Apollo Pepper Distillate
Size: 148 ml

HEATONIST – The brand behind the Hot One’s Sauces and The Last Dab Apollo
HEATONIST was founded from a desire to make food more exciting and flavourful, one plate at a time!
Building on a lifelong passion for spice, founder Noah Chaimberg set out to share his appreciation for the best hot sauces with the world. While the hot sauce industry was largely focused on chasing extreme heat, Noah realised smaller makers were creating craft hot sauces with unique tastes, great flavour, and high quality ingredients ranging from ghost pepper to aged cayenne peppers.
In 2013 Noah began selling a curated selection of his favourite hot sauce brands from a push cart at Brooklyn markets. All it took was one taste for people to fall in love!
Since then, HEATONIST has grown to include a flagship hot sauce store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and a hot sauce outpost in Chelsea Market in Manhattan. Along the way, heatonist.com became the world’s most popular online destination for every hot sauce lover!
HEATONIST is a major inspiration for The Sauce Shop. We are proud to bring you a taste of their range!
