It all began centuries ago when sailors began fortifying barrels of sherry with fiery hot peppers. The all purpose seasoning was used to mask the less than appetizing taste of rancid ship rations. Not exactly an alluring origin and perhaps they would have been more precise to call it “Peppered Sherry” but ….. we cannot rewrite history.
Now nearly every restaurant and pantry in Bermuda contains a bottle of Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Peppers. It is THE Bermuda hot sauce that predates the hot sauce craze by decades.
A classic blend of Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Peppers and black rum, the traditional additives for Bermuda Fish Chowder. We have made it easy by combining them into a distinctly handy shaker bottle. Try a dash on raw clams and oysters too.
