About the Sauce

Our process starts in a small test kitchen here in the majestic Pacific Northwest that we call home. It’s here that we let creativity and ambitious thinking take the wheel as we experiment with unique ingredients and exciting new flavor combinations. We do this with careful consideration, not just for the sauce itself but for the food you apply it on a daily basis.

Our best ideas are refined through the trial and error of standards of what we believe what a good, top-shelf hot sauce should be. Bold. Exquisitely balanced. Delicious.

Quality ingredients. All of our produce is fresh from the source. Local first. Murder Hornet Hot Sauce is always free of preservatives, added sugars or fillers.

Cooking techniques. We take time to roast our peppers, leaving them juicy, caramelized, and just a little smoky. We blend and cook everything in small batches, allowing enough time for all flavors and textures to emulsify. In the end, every ingredient shines to its fullest potential.

Just the right amount of heat. Hot sauce should bring the heat, but never at the expense of flavor. That said, we make our sauce with the choice amount of heat so it sharpens the existing flavors of your food, rather than overpowering it.

A perfect pour. We think a good hot sauce should be thick and robust, covering the food you put it on, rather than pooling at the bottom of your plate. Water is never a main ingredient in our sauces.

Fashion forward. Attitude with sophistication. How often does your table hot sauce double as a fun conversation piece?
