From humble beginnings, sneaking jalapeños on taco nights and drinking hot sauce straight from the bottle, Austin has evolved into a fiery zen master. He slices fresh habaneros and casually eats them on sandwiches and munches on jalapeños as snacks! He knows not everyone has the desire to feel THAT much heat when they eat, but there are plenty of us who need to kick things up a notch. Enter their new, Vancouver BC based, gourmet hot sauce company - Roasters Hot Sauce. Food is a passion at the Hill house and Roasters is a family affair. For years they’ve dreamed about centering their livelihood on food. Being trained as research scientists though, there wasn’t a clear path towards that dream. In 2012, after their son was born, they couldn’t make their food as spicy as they wanted, so their hot sauce consumption skyrocketed. They longed for something with more varied flavour than traditional hot sauces, so Austin started making it himself. After a few experiments, it became clear he was on to something special by using only fresh produce and fire roasting it before blending. The result was this perfectly balanced, fresh fired flavour. They never looked back, just knew this was it, and Roasters Hot Sauce was born. After 3 years of making their hot sauces casually and sharing it with friends, they got the kick in the pants we needed to commercialize our recipes and launch Roasters Hot Sauce in August 2015. Their mission, as a family run business, is to handcraft gourmet roasted hot sauces and make them available to all those who want to elevate the spice in their life.
