Maker Story: Brian Ruhlmann, founder of Craic Sauce, discovered his passion for craft hot sauce after experimenting with making his own batch of hot sauce with ghost peppers grown in his own backyard in Massachusetts. That year in 2014, after moving to Ireland, Brian started his website crafthotsauce.com, interviewing hot sauce makers all over the world for his podcast and blog.
Three years later, after constant inspiration from his website, Brian started his own brand of hot sauce, Craic Sauce, following his move back to the US. Pronounced “crack,” craic is an Irish word that means good times and fun. Having good craic was the guiding light of his new business, a value that is still essential to Brian and his team today, who make their flavorful and unique hot sauces by hand in Lowell, Massachusetts.
