The sauce that started it all. Canceaux is our flagship hot sauce and to this day, remains our most popular. A sweet, garlic flavor with a kick. Truly addicting.

If you’re on the fence at all, get it. It’s well worth the money. This is Los Caliente Verde are my two favorite hot sauces and will be in heavy rotation forever.
Good sweet chili sauce!
Delicious! Sweet and savory with the perfect amount of spiciness. Love it!
Great flavor with a mix of heat and sweet. Very Good
Just used it on wings tonight and we were all blown away. AMAZING TASTE!!! I need a gallon of it!!!
Great hot sauce. Will definitely buy more.
My favorite hot sauce!
We have been ordering this for years now and turned on a lot of our friends to it. We love it!
Great sauces! Drove to Maine, had some, bought some, then bought two more back home!
On our recent visit to Portland we had dinner at J's Oyster . I had Haddock for dinner and the hot sauce was Captain Mowatts Canceaux . I enjoy a good hot sauce that is not so hot you need to wash it down, but at the same time not so wimpy that you need to keep dumping more on ! This was a perfect heat for me .....ordered some as soon as we got home ! Thank you
Glad a friend told me about this hot sauce. Nice heat and a little sweet.
Love the sauce! And it shipped quickly! Thank you!
Our son was always raving about this and insisted we try it. He brought some over and we’ve been hooked ever since. We use it on everything, eggs, meats, pasta, salads etc. I only wish my local grocery stores would carry it. My IGA did, but not anymore. It’s worth the price but would love to avoid shipping. However their shipping packaging was outstanding. Highly recommend this sauce!!
This stuff is great on anything and everything
This sauce was so delicious ! It has a perfect balance of sweet and a hot kuck.
I am a hot sauce connoisseur (self-proclaimed, of course) but this sauce is excellent. I say this because it is like nothing else in my collection. It has a distinct flavor that is great in every way, sweet/spicy/garlicky. Just great!
I saw an ad for Capt. Mowatt's Canceaux Sauce on Facebook. It reminded me about our trip up the East Coast last year, and our time in Portland, ME. I ordered a bottle, and it is delicious! A little sweet, a little spicy, and garlicky. I love it and I will be ordering more.
Bought in Portland years ago. Continued buying on line. By far the best all around hot sauce ever. Don't have a restaurant but just purchaced 2 Gallons!!!. And I'm sure the captain processes my order every time I call! Thanks DAVE
I love your sauce. I tried it at a diner in Portland on New Year’s Day this year. It’s the perfect blend of heat and flavor. I brought a bottle home and when it ran out a few weeks ago I ordered another one. When this one runs out I’ll be ordering another and possibly trying a different flavor too. Great stuff!
This is the best hot sauce hands down. I recommend it to everyone to try at least once. I am going to be a lifelong customer!!!
This is my new favorite hot sauce! It tastes amazing and is the right balance of heat and sweet. I will be back for more!
The flavor is just spicy enough. I love it.
Amazing flavor, one of the best I have had and I've bought a lot of them!
Great flavor. Try it on pizza.
Perfect combination of sweetness and heat!
This is a great sauce! I hope to never be out of it. We love it on fried foods like panko shrimp. It's so much better than ketchup. We also love it mixed with cream cheese for dipping.
Delicious as usual.
If I’m making my egg breakfast sandwich, I’m adding your sauce. It’s the ONLY way to spice up eggs.
I can no longer eat breakfast without it being doused in their sauce. 12/10 would recommend; goes on aaalmost everything!
I originally tried this as a promotional extra in a previous order I placed. Oh my!! I’m so glad I did because now I order it with my regular orders! It’s delicious. Sweet, spicy, tangy, delicious. Taste good on everything. 10/10 would recommend.
It's the G.O.A.T
Tried this sauce at a diner in Portland, Maine. The second it hit my taste buds I asked where to buy it, it was that good. I was trying to strategize how to order more of This since I live in MA, but found this website. Very fast shipping, bottles were very well packaged, and this sauce has taken over any hot sauce or condiment I used on food. I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Residual customer right here!
I have always loved this sauce but I'm not sure if they changed the recipe. It is soooooo spicy now I can't even use it. I'm wondering if I got the spicy version by mistake. This sauce is wayyy darker than it normally is too.
I can't live without this sauce! It's the best on eggs, omlets, scrambles.......and fried shrimp! Try blackened brussels with a drizzle of the Captain. Insanely good!
Best sauce ever! It has become a staple in our house. Easy to order from their website and arrived quickly and very securely packed!!
Fast and friendly shipment!
This is good stuff, very good stuff. First time for my son (a bbq/smoke star) and I to try any of the Captain and this is very good. My first taste I thought it was sweet. But my son, and wife, said wait for it. And it came, softly at first and then hotter at the end. Good, solid, red pepper bbq sauce. Not too hot at all, but soft and warm, and hotter at the end. Now we’re going to have to buy more of the Captain.
My parents discovered this sauce in Portland in about 1997. Now, 25 years later, restocking our supply of Canceaux and Canceaux Turbeaux is a family tradition at Christmas time. We try a lot of hot sauces, but nothing has come close to toppling these two from the top for us. Thank you!
Been ordering this for a couple of years now. Have given it as gifts and the folks I gifted it ordered more on their own. Love it. Not overpowering on food with just the right amount of heat. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
This stuff is awesome. I am from Williamsport, PA and my granddaughter recently ate at Becky’s Diner in Portland. I do not know this happens, but the Canceaux Sauce tastes great but it also makes your food taste better. Up till recently, I swore by Skeeter Beater hot sauce from Cambridge, MD. Canceaux Sauce is now my #1. Thanks- John Young
Truly the best, most balanced hot sauce ever. I literally use it when cooking anything savory. Yesterday, in my meatloaf. I give it as a gift to family and friends and they rave about it as well. Thank you for creating Canceaux sauce!
I sent this picture to all my best friends with a caption saying best sauce ever!!! Then went on to buy all of them one and they all agree with me. Side note beyond sauce outstanding business, fast delivery , great packaging, easy to get a hold of. Every company can learn from Captain Mowatt’s
Used to purchase this at the Reading Farmers market then the stand closed shop. Couldn't find it anywhere and always attempted to purchase a replacement...nothing did the trick. Hands down the greatest sauce ever!!!
Everything was great. Whole process. Love the sauce. Maybe on website put a ranking of sauces by sales (don’t need to show actual sales numbers).
This is the finest sauce we have ever used to accent out dishes, without masking the original ambiance of our prepared dished. Brovo to the Captain that created It's recipe!
Here's the truth of the matter. I received a bottle of Canceaux sauce and unfortunately the top was broken off the bottle when I opened it. I contacted Captain Mowatt's and they shipped a new bottle to me immediately. It arrived the next day. I couldn't wait to try the sauce as I had only had a taste of it when I tried it at a local crafts fair. The sauce didn't disappoint. It was delicious (on thinly sliced pork chops)! Thanks, Captain Mowatt's. You da best!
This is the best sauce anywhere!! I continue to recommend this fantastic product to family and friends. Thanks
I don’t think I can do to reviews. For a year now both Canceaux sauces have been essential. What do they pair with? Everything!!!! First picked this up in Kennebunkport a year ago. Returning Monday…have placed several orders with the fine people at the Captain’s. Also perfect packaging and speedy shipping. Look out Blair,etc. these folks have nailed gourmet level sauce perfectly!!!
Easily my new favorite sauce, without question. I’m a Massachusetts native, and I happened to stop at Becky’s Diner while traveling through Maine. I saw a bottle on the table and noticed it was made in Portland, so I had to give the local flavor a shot. Let me tell you… The. Best. Sauce. EVER! It was love at first bite, and I ordered a couple bottles online for when I got home. Give it a try, I promise your taste buds will thank you :)
I’ve been buying these sauces for over 20 years I believe there is no other sauce on the planet like it canceax sauce everyone who tries it at my house loves it I’ve probably told 20 to 30 people and they’ve all bought it I should be a salesman
We love this sauce. Yes it is amazing on eggs, but there are so many other great ways to use it. I took a seared tuna steak, cubed it. Next a corn chip, with a smear of guacamole, to hold the tuna in place and dollop of Canceaux Sauce on to to finish the presentation YUM This sauce is great on seafood
This is the best sauce! Great on tacos or as a dipping sauce for chicken wings.
I'm pretty new to the hot sauce game and have been trying alot of different ones with some success. This is a standout hands down!! The Canceaux sauce is not just a typical hot sauce, it has amazing flavor that compliments whatever you eat it with. It's such a versatile sauce and coats your food unlike other sauces I have tried. So far everything I have had it with has been stellar, from eggs to Salmon to Fried Clams! I ordered 3 more bottles 4 days after my first order as I was already down to my last one from my first order. This is without a doubt, my new favorite sauce!
We love Captains, we first had it at Becky’s on the wharf years ago. We have had it on our egg every day that we eaten them ever since.
Amazing sauce. Will be ordering more for sure!
My husband loves this, it is kind of sweet, but spicy. He pretty much puts it on everything
Although my husband and son have always put hot sauce on their eggs I just never did, that is until our first time going to Becky’s Diner in Portland(what a great place!). Captain Mowatt’s Canceaux Sauce on every table! So I gave it a try on my eggs and fell in love! What I really appreciate is the slight sweetness and actual flavor this sauce offers besides just enough heat. Love this stuff!
Visited Portland Me last week and discovered this delicious best ever hot sauce!
Great Hot Sauce!! Flavor is awesome.
This sauce is amazing! An absolute breakfast must!
It is legitimately the most delicious and flavorful hot sauce I have ever had. It goes well with quite literally anything. I keep a bottle in my car so I always have some with me.
Great favor that’s not piercing heat. My wife and I use it on everything but pancakes. The only problem is the bottle only lasts us 2 weeks.
This is magic, slightly sweet and perfect on eggs, chicken, burger… all around yum!
This is the best sauce - a mix of sweet and spicy that’s perfect for sandwiches, bowls, omelettes, and more.
I had it in a dip couple years ago and have been ordering every year since.
My favorite hot sauce it’s so good. Perfect on eggs or an egg sandwich, perfect on wings or to spice up some boring rice
I've always enjoyed Canceaux Sauce with eggs but my new favorite is to mix 1/2 bottle of Canceaux Sauce with a 8 oz. of cream cheese for a delicious dip with crackers!
I love the ever so slight sweetness.
BEST SAUCE ON THE PLANET- been a fan for over 20 years!!!
Capt Mowatt at their absolute finest.....Canceaux is the high water mark for ANY hot sauce to aim for
The original Captain Mowatt’s is just the right balance of sweet & heat. Tastes great on everything, especially eggs. So glad I discovered this sauce on my trip to Portland.
This was a gift for my sister who also enjoys a bit of a kick to her food. She loves it!!!
My friend included a bottle on Canceaux in his wedding gift bags 10 years ago. It’s one of my all times favorite sauces! I love it on my eggs and breakfast sandwiches! Every time I reorder it I try new sauces. I love a lot of them, too, but Canceaux is still #1!!
This hot sauce is AMAZING and is a crowed pleaser! Everyone that tries it at my house LOVES it. I even bought the smaller one to keep in my purse :)
You, yes you, get yourself a bagel, an egg, some cheddar, and some bacon. Assemble a breakfast sandwich, adding liberal doses of this stuff to the eggs just before they finish setting up in the pan. Consume. Find your hangover cured, your faith in humanity restored, your hunger sated by it's irresistible spicy sweet flavor. Wonder how you every lived without it. (Also good on hash browns but really try the breakfast sandwich thing, it's life changing)
Game night with family and friends and we pulled out all the hot sauces! There was something for everyone and they are all delicious. When I got my first bottle, I consumed the whole thing in one week! Makes every meal better.

This is the best sauce going, in my opinion. It’s not uncomfortably hot, yet it will make your nose run. There’s a slightly sweet taste which makes it so delicious!! I get a dozen bottles with each order and pray the business will continue for as long as I’m alive. I LOVE THIS!!!!
Our family loves them all. First got Canceux after a taste at a fair in Wolfeboro, NH. Haven’t stopped ordering since.
Love this stuff, had it the 1st time in Portland Maine at J's Oyster, love that place too!!
OMG I met Dan 10 years ago at a bar in Portland Maine… Now I have already tried and loved this Sauce but had no idea who Dan was. 10 years ago to this day it is my favorite and now my family and friends favorite hot sauce… Thanks Dan
Wasn't prepared for the sugar ingrediant, but would buy it again.
Makes good tacos great!
Pleasant surprise. Hot enough for me. Mild enough for others
It is very good I put it on everything
I experienced their Canceaux sauce in a diner in Portland years ago, and have been an addict ever since! Love these new products! Great for gifting too!
Love this sauce! I use it all the time, but one of my favorites is on steak and cheese grinders!
This a 'medium' hot sauce. perfect for me. I love it on chicken, pork and eggs. Just the perfect burn for me.
It tastes sweet and spicy with hot red peppers inside it. I mix it with sour cream for dip with Mexico chips. Try it.
What a great combination of sweet, tangy, and hot. Tasted great on Shrimp and also on a pork loin. Cant go wrong on this one!!
I use this on everything. Eggs, soup, chili, chicken, pork, beef. I don't use in on my fruit or my salad, but it's great for dipping a carrot into or on celery.
Discovered Canceaux Sauce when we came through Portland on a vacation a few years ago, and I always have it in the pantry now. One of my three “must have on hand at all times” hot sauces!
Less than a month and I’m already coming back to order a 4 pack! This is absolutely this Texas girl’s favorite hot sauce!
This is the first Mowatt's sauce I tried. Althugh it doesn't have the heat the others do, it has a wonderful flavor and I used it often. Captain Mowatt seems to have a magical way with flavor which I have not encountered in other sauces (Is it the seaweed?)
