Eric and his brother Aaron built the "Corbin Beach Shop" located in Eastern Puerto Rico. A one-stop-shop for tourists and locals traveling to the beautiful islands of Vieques and Culebra. 

Renting everything from surf boards to motor bikes, Corbin Beach Shop also offered beach clothing, accessories, souvenirs and even a smoothie bar.

While inspired by the flavors and ingredients Eric experienced in the Caribbean, his love for hot sauce led him to his next idea...

After months of experimenting with different ingredients and methods, Eric leased a small commercial kitchen to produce and bottle a Caribbean - inspired hot pepper sauce.

Naturally fermented with sea-salt and blended with only fresh ingredients, Mezclado Pepper Sauce was born...

While remaining commmited to using only fresh ingredients, Mezclado Pepper Sauce was launched in two new variations. Red Habanero and Green Habanero with Lime.

In addition to using Caribbean-grown peppers, Mezclado began to exclusively use a barrel-aged, pineapple vinegar in its sauces...
