Scorch Garden is a producer of ultra hot hot sauces in Pittsburgh, PA. It is the combination of horticulture, food science, artistry, and information technology with a massive injection of ambition.
Our sauces are a blend of 9 different peppers aged with garlic and onions and given an herb infused vinegar backbone. Scorch Garden ultra hot hot sauces are over 50% pure pepper mash by volume which pack a devastating punch of heat with an irresistibly seductive flavor.
They are crafted with the advanced addict in mind. Amateur hour is over. We take what we do very seriously and to create the perfect sauce, we keep thing pure, practical, and over the top.
THE SIX (6) THINGS THAT DEFINE US ARE:
We never use any pesticides, weed killers, fungicides, or commercial fertilizers in our gardens. Only cardboard/newspapers, organic compost, and raw shredded wood chips.

They are outrageously hot and exceedingly flavorful.
Each pepper we use was specifically chosen for its individual properties and flavor profiles. This makes for some of the best tasting ultra hot hot sauces. Hands down.
Since there is only one growing season per year, we only do one production run per year. Available for a limited time late fall and early winter, once they are gone, there won’t be any more until next year. Get ’em while you can.
That also means from year to year, like vintage wines, the sauces take on a slightly different character based on pepper mixes, expressed phenotypes, and growing conditions.
One facet of our artistic side creates a variety of graphic labels and nick names for our sauces. Bottle art is a fun aspect of hot sauce collecting, and part of the history of Scorch Garden is 20+ years of graphic design experience. So it only makes sense that we create three (3) different designs for each sauce. From ominous to humorous, we really enjoyed putting together each label for you to collect. Some like the wacky, some prefer the more ominous.
What’s ON the bottle doesn’t change what is IN the bottle.
We never use extracts, added sugar, thickeners, artificial preservatives, favorings, or colors in our sauces. Our sauces are pure and sustainable from seed to bottle. They are naturally vegan and gluten free with no added sugar.
We can’t stress enough that we naturally grow our own ingredients so we know exactly what is going into our sauces.
We only use peppers (and tomatillos and pineapple and ginger), vinegar, water, salt, garlic, onion, herbs and vegan, non-GMO fermentation cultures. This makes Scorch Garden ultra hot hot sauces insanely hot and unbelievably tasty.
Do you know where the peppers in our sauces come from? You should. Watch as we Scorch the Garden in 2018 and if you’re not careful, you just might learn something.
