Since 2016, AUGUST HEAT CO. has done more than refine an old tradition: We've started a new one. Guided by an international palate, we fuse unique fermenting techniques from around the world to create interesting flavors and textures. AUGUST HEAT CO. makes everything in small batches from our home state Florida. To achieve optimal flavor, our products are mostly local and fresh from small US Florida Farms, making every Bottle worth your purchase.


AUGUST HEAT CO. uses organic produce from local farmers in Florida. Even our spices are fresh. Just because Bottling is a preservation process doesn’t mean you can use dried-up thyme or 2 week-old picked peppers that’s already a little spongy. We want to give our customers smooth , fresh and delicious Hot Sauces. Most of all, we want to expand people’s palates and prove that Hot Sauce doesn’t always come in a super hot variety. Flavor over Heat a sweet balances of acid and alkaline to tempt all pallets.

Chris and Sarah are passionate about Gourmet Sauces. Chris was raised in a traditional Large Chicago family. Cooking is what they did in his family home making and baking many old family recipes, he learned from the best. Sarah was also raised in the Midwest on a farm in a small town in Michigan. Sarah’s parents Traveled all over the globe introducing her too many types of flavors. Making her obsession for sauce and spices a staple in her palate.

Dissatisfied with the average hot sauce market, Chris and Sarah started making different sauce at home. Chris became a bit of a pepper-snob, but thinks that everyone should eat delicious things, so it’s really more of an egalitarian snobbery. Ironically enough in 2018 Sarah and Chris bought the oldest hot sauce shop in St Augustine established over 28 years ago. The Hipster shop is called “Hot Stuff” on Treasury St. in our nations oldest city, in historic downtown St Augustine. And love what they do!
