Maker:

I grew up loving spicy foods and searched for a hot sauce with the perfect combination of heat and flavor. I remember ​being a kid,​ watching football at sports bars with my brother and dad, eating wings and sampling hot sauce, but always craving more flavor and more heat from Mild to Medium to Hot and beyond!

Good times and great food have been my passion for years, but as I got older I realized that there was something lacking in most hot sauces I tried: they were barely hot enough to get my endorphins going or were all heat and devoid of flavor.

So, I made it my mission to create the sauce I had been craving. The result is FIREWALKER Hot Sauce.

​​I created a blend of citrus and garlic with a lucid habanero kick, crafted from the freshest natural ingredients to enhance every bite, never to overpower. Pure taste!

 
I made the first batch in a small apartment kitchen in Asheville,North Carolina and we remain committed to handmade small-batch production with locally grown produce, creating a hot sauce with complex layers and depth to brighten and intensify your food.

We are proud to say that we use no artificial preservatives, no GMO's, no sugar, no need to refrigerate.

I am passionate about making every meal an adventure. If you feel the same and are ready for a truly dynamic sauce, lets fire-walk together!​

SPREAD THE HEAT™
