The founder

The El Machete brand rises from two things close to my heart, my love for my mother’s cooking, and for Mexican and Los Angeles early 20th Century history. We are a Los Angeles based brand and small scale manufacturer of handcrafted chilli sauces and spicy-hot condiments. In the era of individualized consumer preferences, Team Machete creates products for the discerning palate who appreciates freshness, quality, and unique flavor profiles. Our partners and customers range from hot sauce aficionados, vegan-vegetarians, to supporters of start-up businesses, restaurateurs, and mixologists. With our team of three, along with friends and family supporters, we’ve been building El Machete one bottle and customer at a time.
