You can hear the whole story told by Mikey on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast, but the sauce combines the flavors of Japanese Black Vinegar and Yuzu Vinegar with roasted tomatillos, jalapenos, and the notorious 7-Pot Primo Pepper.

Maker Story: Mikey's passion for salsa and sauces started when he was about 13 years old. He wasn't like every other kid. He always had a job of some sort, like a paper route, mowing grass etc. He would use the money earned from these jobs to buy hot sauces at his local hot sauce store, Hot Licks.
Fast forward 20+ years... He moved to Austin, Texas and my brother dared me to enter my "family famous" hot sauce into the Austin Hot Sauce Festival's competition. He did, and won first place! At that point, he decided to launch my company.
Mikey currently manufactures all of my 25 products in his 3000 square foot kitchen. The other side of his business is that he owns and operate a hot sauce shop in beautiful Georgetown, Texas! They not only carry local, Texas-made products, but award-winning products from all over the world!
