The Dominican hot sauce that livens up any dish with authentic island flavor!
Use Pisqueya as more than just a hot sauce! Much like Spanish sofrito or French mirepoix are the bases of many dishes, our sauces double as ingredients in your saucepan too!
Outside of the kitchen, enjoy our versatile sauces as a salsa, condiment, marinade or dip. You can even add Pisqueya to your cocktails to make a spicy michelada, or anything else that needs a twist!
