The Virginia BBQ In A Box - Fathers Day, June 2021

We have partnered with Catoctin Creek Distillery in Virginia and Tom Hixson of Smithfield  to create a limited edition Father’s Day gift - a Virginia-style BBQ party in a box.

The box has everything you need to recreate an authentic Virginia style barbecue at home. Three limited edition rye-based hot sauces, there’s a bottle of award-winning rye from our friends at Catoctin Creek Distillery and our friends at Tom Hixson have chosen the best American-style meat cuts to accompany them. You’ll also receive a Spotify playlist, instructions for Cornhole (a traditional Virginia garden game), recipes for sides and cocktails and more…

The Virginia BBQ In A Box is not just a unique and fun gift but it is also incredible value for nearly 5kg of meat, as well as the rye, sauces and added extras, comfortably serving six people.

Curfew Grooming - Trio of Sauces - Ongoing

An ongoing bespoke project for the lovely chaps at Curfew Grooming, a barbershop in Brixton.

Together we devised a trio of incredible sauces to represent their brand and two shops in Brixton and Hackney.

The Sauces

Curfew FireCracker

BLAZING HOT CAROLINA REAPER BLENDED WITH SWEET BRITSH BLUEBERRIES.

This collaboration sauce was made to be just as disruptive as the Curfew Brand. Blending the godfather of chillies with mouth-watering summer blueberries, The Curfew Firecracker will leave your tastebuds tingling for more.

Brixton Blaze

FIERY SCOTCH BONNET BLENDED WITH SWEET RED PEPPERS.

This collaboration sauce was made to taste just like Brixton in a bottle. Blending flavours of the Caribbean, The Brixton Blaze will ignite any kind of food.

Hackney Heat

SPICY RED CHILLIES WITH SWEET FRESH MANGO.

This collaboration sauce delivers both the sweet and the spicy in one hit. Blending all the fresh and exotic flavours of East London, the Hackney Heat will tease and tickle the taste buds. 

Brixton Streetwear - Charity Collaboration - Ongoing

In Partnership with the mighty Brixton Streetwear crew I came up with two sauces based on the brief "Famous Golden Arches - Sweet Curry Dip". This is an ongoing project with all profits going to the Brixton Soup Kitchen Charity.

Brixton Soup Kitchen is a community space for homeless people or people in desperate need. The Soup Kitchen provides food, drink and companionship in a warm and friendly environment on a weekly basis. They have served over 20,000 meals either eaten on site or distributed during food drop offs and outreach sessions, all  made possible with the donations and support from local community members as well as local businesses.

It's been amazing to be part of such a worthwhile cause and give a little something back to the local community where Lazy Scientist Sauces Began.

The Sauces

Brixton Heat

HOT CURRY SAUCE WITH MANGO & AGAVE SYRUP

This hot curry sauce was created especially for Dan to dip his Fish Shop chips in. As a homage to his mysterious past, it's SUPER HOT with the addition of Carolina Reaper chilli so not really suitable for any other member of the family... Especially not Pete!

Brixton Sweet

SWEET CURRY SAUCE WITH MANGO & AGAVE

This sweet curry sauce was created especially for Pete to dip his Fish Shop chips in. As a homage to his Irish Roots, it's SUPER MILD so perfect for every member of the family... Except Dan!
