Volcano Sauce is a sweet-hot sauce developed by former restauranteur and tavern owner Tom Tiberii. This unique, all-natural blend of ingredients from the Far East has a sweet but peppery initial flavor, followed by a blast of spicy heat that warms your tongue and awakens your taste buds to the flavors in the food it accompanies.
The sauce caught on like wildfire at Tom's restaurant, and soon visitors and locals alike were clamoring for him to produce it in greater quantities. Tom acquiesced, and currently sells his sauce to distributors, supermarket chains, retailers and of course the general consumer.
Volcano Sauce is a excellent complement to hundreds of dishes. It adds zip to chili and chicken, enhances the flavor of beef and pork, gives seafood a little bite without hiding the delicate flavors . . . . . well, you get the idea.

The inspiration for Volcano Sauce came to Tom on one of his many trips to the Far East. While there he discovered a blend of local spices and herbs that suited his taste for "sweet hot" foods. Although the actual recipe is a secret, Tom has disclosed that it contains a combination of Thai chiles, garlic, sugar, vinegar, water, salt and "various spices". As Tom puts it, "you first taste the sweetness, then wait for the eruption".
(Did you really think that we would tell you????)
Time moves on and so has Tom. After selling his restaurant and boat "Wet Noodle", Tom's home in the Florida Keys, he had a desire to return to Thailand for an extended stay.
Not wanting to disappoint Volcano Sauce's many loyal customers Tom decided to sell the company to Jeff and Jean Ackerman of Northern Michigan and the Upper Keys. And don't worry after a few lessons the Ackermans got it down. Same sweet and spicy recipes, original Hot and for an extra kick of heat try the Lava.
