So this morning the postman changed the course of history - well, of breakfast. But you get the idea. Mr Postie delivered a bottle of Dunville’s Chipotle BBQ Sauce, one of the two new sauces in the ever growing range from Rock-a-doodle-do. The best thing with this partnership is another wonderful marriage of Northern Ireland’s finest things. This time the hot sauce gods has taken a local whiskey (yes it’s spelt that way) and thought to himself “what can I do with this”.
A few coffees and couple of drams later Dunville’s Chipotle BBQ was born. It is made with Dunville’s Three Crowns Peated Irish Whiskey and smoked chipotle peppers. And wow is it moreish. Normally I’m hesitant of peated whiskey, but that’s just me. However, the smokiness of the peated whiskey combined with the smoked chipotles is wonderful. Actually it’s not just wonderful, it’s amazing. There’s no hiding from the smokiness, but that’s what every good BBQ flavour should be - right? Yet the sweetness of the sugars from the tomato ketchup gives a brilliantly well balanced sauce.
This is quite mild, but that in itself lends it to be an every day sauce and one that is completely accessible to every palette. My first taste was a little on a teaspoon, closely followed with a couple of table spoonfuls. Seriously, I could do shots of this stuff. Well there is whiskey in it. Anyway, back to changing the course of history/breakfast. This morning was going to be the usual bacon sandwich and mug of coffee. However, having just received the latest addition from rock-a-doodle-do I thought it would be rude not to take it up a notch.
So take some fresh tiger crusty bread, fry off some streaky bacon until crispy and also fry off a couple of slices of haggis in butter. Assemble the bacon and haggis on top of some brie and drizzle liberally with Dunville’s Chipotle BBQ Sauce. You now have a breakfast so damn good you’re gonna want it to be tomorrow morning so you can have another one!
