Hey there! How is it August already? Before you put your grill away for the summer, we curated three summer-themed craft hot sauce boxes for you to explore.
I just heard that if you drink hot tea on a scorching hot day, it actually makes you feel cooler. If that's the case this super hot box will leave you frozen!
Featuring: Rising Smoke Sauceworks, Elijah's Xtreme, and Gringo Bandito
We need more female representation in the hot sauce industry! This hot sauce box features the stories and sauces from three women-owned hot sauce companies.
Featuring: Silly Chilly, Caulfield Provisions, and Secret Aardvark
Who doesn't love some sweet with their heat? The Box O’ Sweet Heat features unique fruit-forward sauces, perfect for your summer meals.
Featuring: Small Axe Peppers, Craic Sauce, and Dat's Nice
Question for ya!

I wanted your first note of the year to come from the hot sauce part of your life. Happy New Year! I hope you’re in good health and I’m counting on 2022 being a great year ahead.
I’m here to share a recent conversation I had, which is now on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast. Sometimes when I write this newsletter or market a hot sauce, it’s not my most natural channel of communication. The podcast has grown to be my favorite way of connecting with the wider craft hot sauce community and sharing those experiences with you.
Hope you’re enjoying your week as we ease into the winter months. In the past couple of newsletters I’ve described the hustle and bustle of the chili pepper harvest season. I feel like the mania that built up during summer peaked a couple weeks ago at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo.
The event was everything we hoped for with lots of engagement with hot sauce enthusiasts and makers. We gave out more samples of Craic Sauce over a two day period than ever before, receiving lots of positive feedback, especially with our Brian Boru’s Curry sauce.
