.What is the shelf life of commercial sriracha?

Is a three-year-old open bottle in a cupboard (not refrigerated) safe for consumption?

Think of it like ketchup. However it's probably better to get a fresh bottle, if the color has darkened it really changes the taste.
It's pretty easy to find now, My publix has it and I've seen it at wal-mart.

The bottle has best if used by date embossed on the top portion. It is difficult to see but three years is too long. Better to be safe than puking in the New Year from bad sriracha.

Most things, regardless how much chemical preservatives are in it, should be donated to science rather than a guest's stomach. Buy some new.

I've actually phoned the company that makes it and got kind of a vague answer. But three years, unrefrigerated must go into the bin straight away.
