About us

Charleston Original Sauces was founded in 2009 by my mother, Mary Caroline Heath.  Born and raised by a farming family in the Lowcountry, she appreciated the true value of good food, quality products, and determination. Less than impressed with the lackluster sauces and seasonings found in stores, she was determined to give ‘seafood the respect it deserved’

Through a collaborative effort with her children, the iconic Cocktail Sauce, with  perfect consistency and just the right amount of bite, was born; followed by our Seasoning Salt, Blackening Spice, and Hot Sauce. It was truly a family effort, with everyone involved in recipe development, production, and distribution. 

In the midst of Covid-19, with no jobs available, especially to high school students, I started a landscaping business. Several months later, I sold my landscaping company in order to gain the necessary capital to  purchase Charleston Original Sauces name and recipes.

In addition to being a full time high school senior and baseball player, I sourced a new manufacturer and put Charleston Original Sauces back into production. Our team created a merchandise line, handled  logistics, social media, administration, marketing and sales. 

We are proud to say our products are being sold in 18 different stores and restaurants across the lowcountry.
