Maker Story: Keenan Lee Adams was born with a unique and wonderful talent: he has a palate that is perfectly equipped to handle almost any hot sauce. By the time Keenan reached the age of 9, he had acquired a collection of hot sauces that was rapidly filling the Adams pantry and refrigerators.
In 2004, his parents began to wonder where they could store Keenan's growing collection of hot sauces. His dad, who had a culinary background, suggested that perhaps Keenan should try making hot sauce himself so he could tweak and adapt it to perfectly meet the requirements of his sophisticated pallet. Soon, Keenan was crafting his own hot sauces, and K-Sauce was born!
K-Sauce went commercial in 2013, and Keenan and his family have created six wonderful and unique K-Sauces. Want to hear more of the K-Sauce story? Read the entire K-Sauce story here.
