About Our Sauce

It all started with a tour of the Ontario Agri-Food Venture Centre!  Dot, who at the time, was the President of the local Probus Club attended a tour of the facility with her Probus group.  The tour guide, Chef Emilio, asked the members of the group if they had any recipes that they would like to put into production and explained that the Centre would help kick off new businesses.  Dot spoke up and said she had a family gourmet sauce recipe that had been handed down by her Aunt - thus beginning what was the start of the Saucy Dotty's “Original” Gourmet Sauce.


The Original sauce has a very nice balance of sweet & spicy, with it’s molasses base giving it the silky smooth sweetness that everyone loves.  The small amount of chilli sauce that is included in the recipe gives the sauce an extra kick — it is highly addictive!   

It didn’t take long for Dot to sell out of her first batch, and after the success of the “Original” sauce, Saucy Dotty’s “Sweet” was developed. It has the same great taste as the “Original,” but without the extra spice.


In 2018, after many requests from fans of Saucy Dotty’s Gourmet Sauce, “Extreme Heat” and “Gluten Free” sauces were developed.


“Extreme Heat” is great for those who love hot sauce, but don’t want the long lasting effects of the heat. The delicious sauce gives you the quick blast of heat you want, without it lingering. It is absolutely delicious in an Asian stir-fry, or on chicken wings! 


With a simple change to the brand of Worchestershire Sauce used in the recipe, all sauces currently in production are now Gluten Free!

In 2020, Dot opened her very own production facility in Brighton.


“Put It Where You Want It” is our tagline, because our sauce is so versatile. Check out a few of our recipe ideas!
