About

Who we are:

Who are we? Good question. We are simply the result of a passion. A passion for great produce, a passion for Scovilles, a passion for promoting local businesses, and a passion for enjoying watching an individual smile, when trying something I have produced. Background wise, I'm no Michelin star chef, who has been through years of catering school, worked alongside top chefs, nor have I even worked in a busy commercial kitchen. I just love to produce foods and products that people enjoy. I feel passion makes a food product much better than any school can teach.

What we sell:

We produce all things spicy. Our concept follows the 5 elements, which we turn into 5 flavours, by incorporating flavours that pair well, along with ingredients to match the specific element. In these flavours, we produce sauces, the main selling product line. We also produce Beef Jerky, Spice Rubs, Spiced Nuts, Chilli Jams, Chilli Salts, and Chilli Oils in each flavour. Please find the flavour descriptions for our sauces, below, to give you an idea of what each flavour entails.

Water - Here we have a deliciously smouldering spell. Red and green Jalapeños bring the warmth of the sun, while Moscato wine adds a sweet rich layer, almost like candy. Watermelon, our sorcerers’ magic ingredient, gives a rich, fruity intensity and unites the flavours to make it a unique experience. Cast its magic over any barbecued meat or vegetables, or brush onto cobs of sun bright corn.

Spirit - Into the cauldron, our sorcerers breathe Spirit and light, as well as the slight burnish of flame. Coloured with late summer sunsets, this is a sweet and light chilli kick of yellow Scotch bonnets, lifted with the sweetness of mango, and given added punch with spiced rum and demerara sugar. It perfectly compliments fresh fish and seafood, and is perfect as a baste for the grill or barbecue.

Earth - Earth is a magical concoction of real, sensorial depth. Our Sorcerers use smoke as the lead flavour. The mystery of smoked Serrano chillies and black smoked garlic finds its magical balance with the sweetness of molasses and carrot and the earthly wonder of deep beetroot flavour. Ideal with beef, duck or venison. Earth adds just the right hazy campfire goodness to bring a new layer of flavour and subtle heat.

Air - Air is a mysterious blend of magical elements. The heat of Habaneros, roasted to reveal their unique heat, the tropical sunshine of pineapple meeting the herbal notes of fresh time, and the chilli heat superpowers with apple cider vinegar all make this a curious taste. Roasted chicken wings or sweet potato take its flavour well, but its also a great all rounder to help you become your own sorcerer.

Fire - Fire isn’t shy. It casts its blazing spell loud and clear. Carolina reaper chillies leap flame-like across the taste buds, bringing a sweet kick from the sweet red pepper and carrot, and added scorched intensity from blood orange and apple cider. Not for the foolhardy, Fire makes a great condiment for dipping, but used as an ingredient can add another layer of deep heat flavour to any dish.

Where the business currently is:

The Scoville Sorcery Company is still a small, home based business. We produce in our small kitchen, store stock in our cupboards and sell at local farmer's markets. This is all well and good being able to work from home, but, it is not ideal with 2 small children and a nagging wife who cannot handle the smell of the Carolina Reaper chillies being dehydrated in the kitchen  hahaha :-)

The business is also ran around a full time job where I work upto 90 hours per week, to make this business work. Hopefully I can soon make this my full time job and enjoy waking up to start my days work, as oppose to dreading the rat race.

Where your help could take our business:

With your help,  along with what we have currently raised, through sales, we would be doing the following:

- Initial deposit and 2 months rent for a small unit to produce from.

- Larger equipment to upscale our production.

- A new website to support an online shop and increase sales.

- Labelling equipment to reduce branding costs.

Thank you for everyone taking the time to even read a bit about ourselves, and extra special thank you to all of you that back our project.

Risks and challenges

The only risk I will encounter is being hurt by the wife with my own Fire Sauce, for not making the desired pledge and moving our production out of her kitchen. I'm not sure she enjoys walking around her own house with a gas mask on. �

No, in all seriousness, of course there are risks and challenges, like in any business. We just feel we have the desire, passion and dedication to overcome any obstacle to make it work....... and that's what we will do!
