Private label hot sauces are sauces which are made by companies that will allow you to order labels to your specification and market the hot sauce as your own. For example, you can create your own logo ("Bob's Fire Sauce" or "Wendy's Wild Wing Sauce"), order as many bottles as you need and then use them as gifts or at a special party you are hosting. Using private label hot sauces is also a good method when advertising your company at a fund-raiser or other social gatherings.
Businesses which promote private label hot sauces will allow a restaurant or any other eating establishment to use their own brand of hot sauce and market it as their own. Any label that is ordered from hot sauce company can have your name, the restaurant's name, an invented name and/or an especially designed logo. However, all labels are required to have ingredients and nutrition information listed on them. Hot sauces such as Jim Beam Hot Sauce, Frank's Red Hot Sauce and Cholula Hot Sauce are not considered private label hot sauces because they are already registered with a particular company and in most cases have been copyrighted.
The Hot Sauce Depot offers hot sauce for customers to use and label customizing services. One of their products is deemed the "Acid Rain 10" hot sauce and claims to be the hottest sauce ever made due to a novel hot pepper just recently found growing in Africa.

For birthday celebrations, Gourmet Mike's can put the honoree's picture on the label and any other details you may want guests to know about the birthday guy or gal. In addition, this website also contains the "Scoville scale" which is the scale used to rate the hotness of a sauce according to the type of peppers included in its ingredients. The highest rating is numbered at 15, 000,000 to 16,000,000, which indicates the amount of capsaicin, an active element in chili peppers, that exists in the hot sauce. A sauce receiving a "0" means that it contains no capsaicin, such as a sauce containing only bell peppers.
Private label hot sauces can also be used as promotional items when a business is implementing an advertising campaign and wants to attract new customers. Just about everybody loves to shake some hot sauce on their meats or vegetables and what better way to advertise your business than to hand out free bottles of hot sauce.
