Congratulations to Drew and Ana from Pepper north! Im glad we have such a good sauce maker in Canada because I would be sad with a dollar this low and high shipping fees from usa

 

Momento de Muerte is also my favorite and solar flare is so good that I drink from the bottle from time to time.

 

The french on the bottle is on me ! Glad to be part of this :P

Will keep that in mind for sure - I've got about 100+ unopened right now and it feels a bit extreme hoarder-Ish, but once I whittle down the shelf a bit I'd be down. :)
