Our Story

RADS is named after its’ founder, Ryan Anthony Davis. RADS Barrel Aged Pepper Sauce started as an experiment in fermentation in his home kitchen. Ryan knew barrel aging produced delicious results in beer, wine and whiskey, so he thought why not hot sauce? The first versions of RADS were produced from Bellingham Farmers’ Market peppers and garlic and aged in small five liter American Oak barrels. Ryan’s friends and family served as recipe testers and tasters (thanks guys!) The result of Ryan’s vision was delicious, and RADS was born!

RADS is aged in American White Oak barrels for five months which adds a unique earthy richness to RADS, and sets it apart from other hot sauces. While developing RADS, Ryan tested a batch without barrel aging to be sure the barrel-aged flavor was what he sought. There was no comparison! It was Barrel aging that brought out the depth of flavor in RADS.
