Our Vision

We believe hot sauce is not just about heat. Hot sauce is about flavor, nuance, complexity, uniqueness, and heat. Not blazing heat. Not bitter extracts. About heat that allows subtle and bold flavors to shine through without overwhelming the palate or the dish. Our vision is founded on passion – passion for cooking, passion for peppers, and passion for creating something greater than the sum of its parts.

​So, Taste First…Ask Questions Later! We’re sure the only question will be “Where can I get more!”

REVIEWS: Sam&Oliver – Cinder

Create something that is greater than the assembled parts.

How can something so apparently opposite actually create a complementary relationship?

By themselves, Sam or Oliver are fun loving, free spirited companions that will bring cheer and warmth to my day. When they are together, their complementary methods of interaction form a dynamic relationship that cannot be broken. They are an indivisible whole; a team and an inspiration for my company, Sam & Oliver to model itself around. Stay resolute, passionate and confident. Take chances, focus on the good and to enjoy the adventure.

REVIEWS: Sam&Oliver – Stoke

stoke1

Be bold, ambitious and take a leap of faith.

Many of life’s greatest discoveries, creations and changes happened because someone dared to question why. Dared to color outside the lines and take a chance at an idea. One of my dogs, Sam, is the very definition of rebel.

His chaotically good nature is a combination of good heart and free spirit; a pathfinder, benevolent and complete disregard for regulations.

Be still, resolute and focused.

Throughout my journey so far, I have stumbled and become ungrounded more than a few times. Frustrations, setbacks and lost recipes didn’t help much.

One day I was in a rush and had called my dogs into the house so I could prepare to leave. My oldest dog, Oliver, refused to comply, and I grew impatient. I walked outside and called for him to come in. Oliver sat in defiance. Again I called and he remained, resolute. I decided to walk over to Oliver and try again, however as I approached, he laid down. Standing over him, I sighed and thought to myself “Fine, if you aren’t moving, neither will I.”

Chinese describe the rooster with words like Pride, Honesty, Courage, Arrogance & Flamboyance. Celtic and Norse lore describe the rooster as a creature of the underworld. Specifically the cock served as messenger of the Underworld, screeching out warnings in danger, and calling out for the souls fallen in battle. Ri Ra in Gaelic means chaos, disorder, fun, excitement and mayhem and was often shouted in battle. In Spanish and Mexican lore, a black rooster is an omen of death, associated with pagan sacrifice.

REVIEWS: Bandar – Spicy Mango Chili Sauce

It started like a bad joke: A suburban, white guy from Philly (Dan) walks into an Indian restaurant and asks for hot sauce because his food isn’t spicy enough. The server looks puzzled and then runs next door to borrow a bottle of Tabasco for his heat-craving guest. How is this possible? Indian food is naturally very spicy – was it possible there was no such thing as Indian hot sauce?!
