1. For a Spicy Kick: Kold Sauce

The Lowdown: Kold Sauce is our favourite new hot sauce, made by hand in small batches in East London by founder Drew Wolf.

By keeping the sauce raw and cold pressing it, Kold Sauce is alive and kicking with natural bacteria and it has a fresh flavour that supercharges pretty much any dish you want to put it on.
