Our Story


We have always had a passion for good food & great tasting hot sauce, growing chilli peppers and making hot sauce was my favourite pastime. Every weekend was a good excuse to barbecue and trial one of my new sauce recipes.Then in November of 2013 at the age of 31, I suffered a life changing spinal injury when my son was just six months old. A successful career and my ability to provide for my family lost, our lives as we knew them were changed for ever. After years of hospital stays and intensive physical and mental rehabilitation we started to try and rebuild our lives, it was on that journey, that 13 Angry Scorpions was born. So, when life hit’s you with pepper spray, turn it into hot sauce. In 2016 we unleashed our range of flavour focused sauces on the world. With 7 sauces ranging from savagely hot Louisiana style to a mild family friendly barbecue sauce. We blend our chilli peppers with vinegar and lock them away for up to 2 years, letting the flavours mellow like a fine whiskey. We then combine our aged pepper mash with some of the freshest local ingredients to meticulously hand-craft our range of premium, flavour-focused, international award winning sauces.
