☽ Made Slowly with Mystery ☾

Fermentation is the fifth step of alchemy, a transformational process that at one time was as much philosophy and art as it was a forerunner to science. HOSA fosters that timeless mission and brings it to life. We make fermented hot sauce with very few ingredients and a lot of patience, to get that heat and magic to your kitchen and table.

A complex and powerful condiment, our sauces will also add slow-cooked character and acidic heat to any of your favorite recipes.

HOSA is a small-batch fermented hot sauce made in the Pacific Northwest by visual artists turned alchemists, using locally-grown, organic ingredients and with as little plastic and other waste as possible. It is hot, vegan, gluten-free, and nutritious. Every silkscreen-printed bottle and jar of HOSA is made with love and a bit of magic, turning chiles+vinegar+salt into gold.

You May Have Questions

Here are some common questions; check our FAQ for more.

Is HOSA gluten-free/vegan?


Yes, all of our sauces are naturally vegan and gluten-free.

Where do you source your ingredients?


Our salt comes from San Juan Island, where the sun dries the ocean waters that we share. Most of our chiles are grown for us by nearby organic farms in the Skagit Valley and Everson. We are developing the mother for our own in-house vinegar.

Should I refrigerate my HOSA?


Our fermentation process creates a robust flavor but your HOSA is no longer a live culture and so it does not need to be refrigerated.

Shipping is expensive, can I pick up from you locally?


Yes, we appreciate the direct support! Our kitchen is located in downtown Bellingham and free pickup is available at our fantastic neighbor's storefront, Champlin Guitars, during their normal business hours. We are both located in the alleyway above the Farmer's Market. [Directions here.]

We know shipping is an unfortunate expense so we do all we can to use the most affordable shipping for your order. We also reduce our impact by gathering used shipping materials from local businesses and re-use them for our mail orders.
