Video interview on crazy hot sauce journey - December 2021

December 01, 2021

Hey there,
 
Have you been running around like crazy lately? I was before I got knocked on my butt with a cold. It just so happened I was a guest on 'Offering Something' the night before I got sick.
 
I brought the energy to a super fun interview where I got to share my hot sauce journey. If you need to slow down for a bit and/or looking for some hot sauce inspiration, view it on YouTube here!
Our most recent craft hot sauce profile shares the story of how an entrepreneur in Chapel Hill, North Carolina brought a spicy, locally harvested recipe cooked by four generations all in the same kitchen to market! Read Samantha's story about Cottage Lane Kitchen here.

New to the Shop!

P allotta Hot shared their craft hot sauce story with us in 2018, but at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo we picked up my favorite three sauces of theirs and they are available on our shop for the first time. They have a classic Louisiana style sauce, a well balanced flavor verde, and a crazy unique & hot chili inspired sauce, Chili Moon. Check out their sauces and story here!
Happy Holidays and thanks for reading!
Cheers,
Brian

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.

Gathering and sharing among the craft hot sauce community - November 2021

November 01, 2021

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.

October 01, 2021

We’re kicking the October Craft Hot Sauce newsletter off with some sounds, images, and the hum of harvest season!

Check out what has been a pretty accurate representation of a day in the life for me and the craic crew this harvest season.

It's been a physical and mental grind of late, but we're learning every hour, making quality hot sauce, and feeling fortunate to be around peppers, farms and people excited for flavor and hot sauce!
