Maker Story: My son Keenan Lee Adams was born with a unique and wonderful talent: he has a culinary ability and palate that is finely tuned to the intense flavors and heat of capsaicin. 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 had a growing concern about where they could possibly store more hot sauces. His dad, having a culinary background, suggested that perhaps Keenan should try making some of his own hot sauce so it could perfectly meet his taste requirements and his finicky, fiery palate. An annual tradition of developing new K-Sauces began!
K-Sauce went commercial in 2013 and there are now six K-Sauce, each very unique and very different from other hot sauces on the market. Read the whole K-Sauce Story here.
