La Pimenterie is a Quebec-based company dedicated to creating, promoting, and marketing high-quality, original, and unique spicy products. Our wide variety of products share two things in common: they are all spicy, and they are all very tasty! Our mission is to spread the passion for hot peppers. We deal directly with many suppliers to obtain fresh, local products. The team at La Pimenterie produces sauces in the heart of the Rosemont district in a traditional manner, and we are constantly creating new products and flavors!
Back in Montreal, he decided to take action. He bought a collection of hot peppers and spices and locked himself in his kitchen with the desire to create hot sauces that are different from any others on the market. He approached the creation of a hot sauce as if it were a work with an aromatic universe of its own. After a few months, he emerged with a range of 7 spicy sauces for his entourage to taste-test. The Pimenterie was born.
The name Pimenterie came to him as he thought of the moment when someone refrained from revealing the level of spiciness in a dish. This little white lie led him to name his business La Pimenterie, a fusion of the word “Piment” (‘hot peppers’) and the Quebec expression “Menterie” (lie).
Today, even though La Pimenterie is present on the shelves of more than 350 retailers and merchants across Quebec, we continue to concoct each sauce with the same passion and meticulousness. Each sauce is a blend of original flavours, and the spiciness finds its balance. Respect for the ingredients and their quality is central to our creative process. We rely on a wide range of flavors to achieve surprising and delicious culinary agreements.
Always passionate about documentaries, our chief chili pepper has traveled the world in the footsteps of chili peppers for the production of his next film on the surprising story of the small burning fruit: Chiliheads. On your screens soon!
