About the offerings.

Company: Jojo's Sriracha

Jojo's Sriracha is a small batch, handcrafted sriracha made in Colorado. You might know Jojo's as the hipster sriracha that came on the scene via Brooklyn in 2012. What you might not know is why she started making sriracha in the first place.

Product: Jojo's OG Sriracha (6 oz.)

The original gangster of Jojo's Sriracha. This batch is where Jojo's story began. That was the day Jojo read the ingredients on her squeeze bottle of sriracha and noticed that not only was sugar the second ingredient but also that it included preservatives as well. that's when she decided to make something better...
1. Chili peppers are ground in small batches with organic garlic, sea salt and a touch of organic coconut palm sugar to prepare them for their lacto fermentation process.
2. After fermentation, each batch gets a splash of organic vinegar before being pureed. Jojo uses the entire pepper so she needs an industrial vitamix blender to get a smooth and hearty texture.
3. From there, each batch is heated and poured one jar at a time by hand. so far her little sister (also her first employee) is the best at this part.
4. Each jar is hand-labeled and stamped with a unique batch number. Batches are typically 24-36 jars and unique to the variety of peppers we happen to be using. although the OG has a relatively consistent flavor, no two batches are ever the same. And we think that's pretty damn cool.
What does it taste like? Jojo's tastes like sunshine on a summer day. It's a welcomed departure from the sugar-filled srirachas you might be used to. Prepare your mouth to experience the wonders of fermented chili peppers, the irresistible punch of vinegar and the tingling, medium heat that keeps you coming back for more.
Add Jojo's to any food, drink or weird leftovers you pulled out of the back of the fridge and get ready for the 6th taste: awesomeness.
Ingredients: chili peppers (hand inspected / locally sourced in-season whenever possible), distilled vinegar*, garlic*, sea salt, palm sugar*

What kind of preserves company doesn't have a Strawberry flavor? Well, we didn't..but we we do now! Truth is, we love Strawberry Jam..so much that it took us a long time to come up with a recipe that we thought was better than what is already out there, and there are lots. After a lot of experimenting, we have perfected our take on Strawberry. Starting with strawberries we added some freshly crushed black pepper, some fresh from the garden basil, and some homemade lemon deeply infused limoncello from our Hotchkiss favorites, Peak Spirits / Jack Rabbit Hill Farms and their Organic CapRock Vodka. 

Ingredients: Strawberries, Organic CapRock Vodka, lemon zest and juices, black pepper, pure cane sugar, and basil.

Product: Colorado Whiskey Peach Deliciousness (2.75 oz.) 

Colorado Whiskey Peach is the flavor that got this whole crazy road trip rolling. This is our signature and original flavor from a 15 year process of recipe perfection, the flavor that won the Blue Ribbon at the Denver County Fair and to this date our most popular flavor. Maybe it’s the sweet, sweet, peaches we get from Colorado’s hidden valley of Paonia; maybe it’s the perfected bourbon whiskey from Colorado’s own Laws Whiskey House, maybe its the fresh sustainable Madagascar vanilla from Lafaza, or maybe it’s just the perfect combination of these things that makes you feel like it’s a perfect sunny, breezy summertime afternoon that stretches to forever.
