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.

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?)
I can't seem to get the photo to download. Originally from Gorham, Maine and we moved to Summerville, SC in 2019. We love our Captain Mowatt's Canceaux Sauce. We use it on everything! Last night it added pizzazz to our grilled chicken. Love it in cream cheese and on crackers. Keep up the good work!! Wendy Clark, Summerville SC
Cannot spend the winter in Florida without my Canceaux Sauce. Great for breakfast on eggs, Lunch on sandwiches and dinner with Chicken. Also, perfect for happy hour poured over cream cheese and spread over crackers! Yum!!
Love this sauce! Use it is so many recipes!
Love all the products we've tried so far!
Nice for "general" use on everything. A tiny bit spicier would be a bit better.
The best "sweet heat" I've ever had---not too overpowering
I have been hearing about this stuff for YEARS from several members of my family and finally decided to try some - I can't BELIEVE I waited so long. It's the best hot sauce I have ever tasted. Stop wasting the years away without it and get some lol!!!! : )
Excellent as always
First tried when we were in Maine at Becky’s diner. Fell in love with it. Bought a bottle to take home and now ordered more and tried out new flavors. All are great and reminds us of our favorite vacation state all year round.
Easy to order and received sauces on time. Great Stocking Stuffers for wife!!
I've lived all across the United States and I will tell you right now that Captain mowatt's cauceux sauce is the best sauce you could ever imagine. The customer service there is absolutely phenomenal but I use that sauce on every item I eat at night it has such a sweet but a bit of hot to it that adds perfect to a winter meal specially for shepherd's pie or just having some homemade onion rings dipping into that sauce is phenomenal. You tried their sauces and you'll never have another sauce the staff rocks and the company goes beyond out of their way to make sure that you're more than 150% happy
Canceaux is my go to sauce these days!
Love it on tacos and wings!!
So good, I use it on steak and makes a great dip when mixed with cream cheese!
Please do not let my sparkling review & endorsement hinder your ability to continue to create one of the most versatile & best tasting hot sauces out there. We were introduced to it while on vacation at a diner in Freeport, ME. It has literally become my husband's go-to for almost every. Single. meal!
Perfect on eggs. Also potato salad. Quesadilla.
Love this stuff. Usually stock up during annual Maine visit. Covid! Ordered 2 bottles by internet.!
This is our all time favorite Capt. Mowhatt's hot sauce ! We NEVER have grilled or rotisserie chicken with out it. Makes a damn fine dipping sauce for fried fish or eggrolls too !
Amazing! Fantastic! Delicious!
Love this sauce! Tried it when my boyfriend and I were in Portland. Had to order it as soon as we got home. Package came with a receipt with a handwritten “thank you” on it. Thought that was a sweet touch. Looking forward to trying some other flavors!!
Great stuff - I use it on nearly everything. Wish it were a little less expensive, though.
Canceaux and Turbeaux are amazing. they’ve fully replaced my use of spices bc the flavorvis just better than what i can do. i’ve ordered 5 or 6 times by now and have also gifted to two friends. love it!
Hands down my absolute favorite hot sauce. I can't get enough of it!
I’ve been eating canceaux sauce since I was a kid. Love it so much. I got it delivered & totally love the packaging. Almost through a whole bottle already!!! It’s a sweet heat but kind of tangy as well. My absolute fav.
Outstanding!! Love the flavor! Use it on my eggs in the morning and in dip recipes to enhance the flavor.
Found this sauce when I lived in CT and saves a photo of it now we live in TN and I ordered it again one bottle came damaged I let the co know and they immediately sent a replacement .... this sauce has such a nice taste and tag to it not to hot goes w eggs, tacos, pork ... over all a excellent sauce and co highly recommend it
I'm really not a hot sauce person, or a spicy food person in general. But my favorite bagel place uses this sauce on their breakfast sandwiches, and thanks to the pandemic I've been sandwhichless for a while. An absolutely worth it purchase that makes every breakfasts just a little better.
I love this stuff. Originally met the owner at a Pig n Pepper contest in Westford MA about 20 years ago. He won for best hot sauce, I won for best salsa. I have been buying his products thru the years ever since
I’ve been ordering the Canceaux for many years. It is certainly my very favorite and it goes on so many of our dishes.
Excellent on all types of seafood. Really adds a perfect pop to my gumbo! I also use it on all types of egg dishes for breakfast. Only wish I could buy it locally.
wonderful as usual.
I cannot live without this sauce! It has changed my world especially with eggs, omlets, hash browns, brussel sprouts, mushrooms......and the list goes on.
I have lived this stuff for more than 20 years. Great spread when mixed with cream cheese or Greek yogurt. My new hack - sautéed shrimp in a little butter and hit it with A bunch of canceaux at the end. Delicious!
Awesome, perfect for a person who doesn't like hot sauce☺
