Ooft sauce made in Huntleywood by Tony & Gabrielle Johnson.

Ooft! owners Tony and Gabrielle Johnson, saw their sauce deemed most popular by chefs during a blind tasting at the Tram Shed restaurant in London’s Bethnal Green area earlier this month.

The company immediately created new one-litre bottles of both their Chipotle and Scotch Bonnet flavour sauces.

Tony said: “They had looked at a number of hot sauces and all the chefs preferred Ooft!

“With this new product we can bring Ooft! to restaurants all over Scotland and beyond.”
