Our brand was born after a year of living and backpacking throughout South America, the birthplace of the world’s hot peppers. Traveling has been a huge inspiration for us. We want to bring new sauces to the table that have their own style and go with the many different types of food that we eat.
I began making hot sauce in my parents kitchen a few years ago, way before I ever thought of starting a business. I had just moved back from living in Argentina, where I taught English for a year. I started making hot sauce and soon I was taking it to work. I got some strong feedback and started to make many different batches. When a friend told me it was “magical”, the name clicked.
While previously living in Buenos Aires, I rented a room at a house called “Los Elefantes” (The Elephants), a magical, funky, very special place. We all came from different parts of the world, but we quickly became family, sharing many meals, stories and laughs. There were animals of course. One of the “family” cats was named Mago, which means wizard, or magician.
Fast Forward 2 years, the “magical” sauce would be called MAGO, or “Spicy Magic”. Today, MAGO strives to give your taste buds something new. We are influenced by different flavors, cultures and art from around the world. We love spicy food with flavor!
Mago Hot Sauce began as an underground hot sauce movement and continues to emphasize our ‘passion over profit’ mentality. We create small batch sauces of the finest quality, with the perfect balance of heat and flavor so you can make every meal better.
