THE NAME

Don't Touch the Baby was born out of a lifelong love for all things spicy and passion for growing super-hot peppers. It all started right after our son was born. The renewed sense of purpose and responsibility that comes with being new parents gave us the motivation we needed to create something meaningful - both for us and him.  What started as a hobby turned into an obsession. Weekends transformed the house into a hot sauce laboratory complete with a mad scientist concocting (and consuming) recipe after scorching recipe until we finally got it just right. Since cooking with some of the world's hottest peppers is almost literally playing with fire, "Don't Touch the Baby!" was heard almost as many times as Baby Shark. When the time finally came to give our first tried and true recipe a name, the subtle warning stuck.



THE PROCESS

Our hot sauce is made with fresh, in-season peppers that are grown right in our backyard. We start them as seeds at the beginning of the year and literally baby them until they're ready to go into the sauce that we send to you. Hand-picked, hand-cut and hand-made - lots of thought and even more love goes into every bottle we sell.



THE SAUCE

Our sauce has 5 ingredients. Vinegar, peppers, onion, garlic and agave. No preservatives, no artificial ingredients - just food.  We think of hot sauce as an an accent to the flavors of the food you're eating. With this in mind, we've put everything we have into making our sauce unique but versatile. We've created it in a way that we think balances great flavor with the perfect heat. And yes, we know this is subjective -  BUT - we're confident you'll find it goes well with almost anything.  Give it a try - DM us on IG if you have questions, post about it if you love it, but most of all -  Enjoy.
