NYC Hot Sauce Expo to Celebrate 5th Anniversary!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASENovember 27, 2016

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary

New York’s own High River Sauces proudly presents the 5th Annual New York City Hot Sauce Expo on April 22nd & 23rd 2017. The NYC Expo will feature up to 45 artisanal hot sauce makers from all over the United States and as far as Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand and South America. The NYC Hot Sauce Expo has grown into an International Hot Sauce celebration. Witness the action packed event with hot sauce tastings, eating challenges, spicy food vendors, craft beer, spicy cocktails and plenty of odd ball entertainment for the whole family.

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo will feature the Bloody Mary Mix-Down National Championship. Winners from AZ, CA & the Portland Hot Sauce Expo’s will be flown in to compete again NYC’s top mixologist in this ultimate Bloody Mary Mix-Down. Winner will receive $2500 cash and the beautiful Stoli Vodka Bloody Mary trophy.

Think you have what it takes to be crowned the Guinness Book of World Records – Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper Pepper Eating Contest, the World’s Hottest Pepper. The 2016 NYC Expo we witnessed Wayne Algenio smash the record by eating 119 grams in 60 seconds. Now the current record is held by Greg Foster when he ate 120 grams at the AZ Hot Sauce Expo on November 13th. Will the record come back to NYC?
