Award-Winning Humboldt Hot Sauce Joins The Hot Sauce Club August 30 2014


We’re thrilled to announce The Hot Sauce Club is now stocking the multiple award-winning Humboldt Hot Sauce!

Humboldt Hot Sauce skyrocketed into hot sauce fame after cleaning up at the 2014 Scovie Awards. They won first prize in the All-Natural category for their Island Style Sauce and came runner up in the Habanero Sauce category with their Habanero-Mango Sauce.

It’s been an astoundingly quick rise to hot sauce fame for this California based team. Humboldt Hot Sauce was officially launched in 2010 by two long-time friends and hot sauce connoisseurs, Cal Ferris and Daniel Bixler. In this short space of time, they’ve managed to make a name for themselves in the hot sauce industry by producing some of the finest sauces going around.

Humboldt Hot Sauce uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create tasty hot sauces free of powders, preservatives and other genetically modified ingredients. The sauces could be described as Caribbean influenced: a high viscosity (ie. thick) with an emphasis on fruits and fresh flavors, coming in three different levels of heat.

The green Emerald Sauce emphasizes lime, cilantro and ginger, while the red Habanero-Mango really brings that spicy punch. The Island Style rests comfortably in the middle, and is the most traditional Caribbean-style sauce.

The defining moment in Humboldt’s short but exciting history was the 2014 Scovie Awards. For those unaware, the Scovie Awards is arguably the most prestigious hot sauce tasting competition globally. Hot sauces are blind tested by a panel of industry professionals including executive chefs, restaurant owners, culinary instructors, food critics and other industry leaders.

To win first place in the All-Natural category and second place in the Habanero category is a huge achievement and it’s a clear indication that Humboldt are establishing themselves as a leader in gourmet hot sauce production.

If you want to try some best-in-class sauce then these are a MUST. It’s now available right here at The Hot Sauce Club for only $9.89 + shipping. Enjoy!
