Where ‘HeadStoneHeat’ Came From:

While hiking the hills through one of the most famous Victorian cemeteries in North America, a good friend and I bounced names back and forth in attempts to create a suitable brand name for my hot sauce. In between our rapid-fire word game, I repeated “look at that headstone… that’s a beautiful headstone… The detail on that headstone is exquisite!”

At one point we both looked at one another and asked “Why not HeadStone?” The Heat followed naturally. I have the pleasure of visiting this cemetery and I take full advantage regularly. Its serene and tranquil energy allow me to focus, meditate and simply relax. Naturally I visit as often as I can.

That is why HeadStoneHeat is a perfect fit.


Our Motives Come From The Heart:

Our Commitment to Traditional Processing like Nonna Vitale Did in the Old Country. We at HeadStoneHeat know that while tomatoes are a delicate and sweet fruit, the seeds can become quite bitter when cooked within a sauce. We process our own peppers as opposed to using extracts. In 2003, we fell in love with the Habañero Chili pepper plant, leading to the products available today from HeadStoneHeat ; the first ingredient in each recipe, consequently, is love!
