Naga Viper Wing Sauce (Chilli Pepper Company)

If you like your hot wings hot you will love slathering them in this hellishly hot sauce. Made from the Naga Viper chilli which previously held the top spot for world’s hottest chilli just a few years ago. This is one that can easily go out of hand thanks to how liberal you are with your wing sauce, doubled with the searing hot 1 million plus Scoville units in the bottle.
