The GEMINI CROW SAUCE COMPANY was born out of the ashes of the now inactive independent music label, Play The Assassin Records. In the wake of declining record sales and increased streaming media, Play The Assassin could no longer compete in the vastly declining musical landscape. While the dreams remained, the passion no longer could keep up with desire and it was time to seek new adventures.
A number of conversations with a long time friend helped us decide to channel our passions & energy toward a new frontier; our other passion; HOT SAUCE! With a renewed sparkle in our eye, we will continue to tackle different variations of America's #1 most popular condiment. With dreams of worldwide domination floating in our minds, GEMINI CROW will tow the line of mainstream acceptance with underground DIY work ethics; a balancing act that has so far built us a solid repeat business fan-base and multiple industry based awards.
Our passion has been renewed and to quote the supportive and encouraging mind who helped bridge our change from music label to hot sauce peddlers, "..you can't download hot sauce...".
The highest compliment we can receive is seeing the happy faces & repeat customer loyalty we witness at every live event we attend. It is also rather awesome to be recognized by the spicy industry and our peers. Here are just some of the times we have been recognized:
