Paisley-based business Necessaucery Ltd say they are aiming to shake up the condiment scene with their new Iron Brew and Hot Iron Brew sauces, which they believe will provide Scots (and non-Scots) with a real alternative to sauce shelf staples.
Created using that most quintessential of Scottish ingredients, iron brew, the two new Necessaucery sauces are set to be a hit with fans of the drink and the company have been tipped for significant growth potential by Business Gateway.
Necessaucery founder Kenny Mills is excited by the launch: “At Necessaucery, we’re hoping for nothing less than a sauce revolution, an end to old-school tomato and brown sauce dominance.
"We felt the time was right for a real alternative to the drearily predictable same-old sauces, and with our Iron Brew sauces we want to blaze a taste trail for fellow flavour adventurers.”
The original idea for Iron Brew Sauce came to Kenny when he was searching for ingredients for the family dinner. When he discovered that the cupboard was more or less bare he had a light bulb moment, and a culinary experimentation with the drink began.
Tweaking and testing the recipes with the expert help of Food Innovation at Abertay University in Dundee followed, and the new sauces were born.
Although Necessaucery Iron Brew and Hot Iron Brew Sauces were created to offer something radically different from standard flavours and norms, their creator says they’re far from being a foodie fad. These are new sauce staples, designed to be used every day, in all sorts of ways.
“Our Iron Brew Sauces are so versatile. They can be used instead of the usual sauce suspects on burgers, barbeques, bacon and buffets, and we recommend them for dipping, glazing and marinating too. Our sauces are also brilliant as an alternative ingredient for creative cookery, and for jazzing up everything from weekday dinners to party food.”
The new sauces make their official debut on the sauce scene at a launch event in Glasgow’s Bath Street Palomino Bar and Restaurant on Thursday 8th September. Kenny expects his new sauces will be a hit with their distinctive flavour and flaming orange colour.
