Our mission is to share the stories, influences and cultures behind craft hot sauces all over the world. 

Craft Hot Sauce was founded in 2014, and in the first week of interacting with hot sauce makers, founder Brian Ruhlmann picked up on a palpable passion that he couldn’t resist leaving alone.

Craft Hot Sauce has shared over one hundred maker stories and compiled in-depth articles for chiliheads and hot sauce crafters alike.

Brian got so pulled into the craft hot sauce scene that he started his own hot sauce company in 2017, Craic Sauce, and has documented his journey along the way.

Craft Hot Sauce continues to share new stories through our monthly email newsletter and helps hot sauce enthusiasts find their perfect hot sauce by providing personalized hot sauce recommendations.
