An average bottle of hot sauce, like the popular Huy Fong Sriracha, might cost you a few bucks on Target, but a bottle of Louisiana-made Swamp Dragon Private Reserve hot sauce? Two hundred and fifty dollars. If you’re wondering how Beeson sells these premium bottles fast enough, he offers various other flavors with a more reasonable price tag. Swamp Dragon comes in four main varieties, bourbon, rum, vodka, and tequila, which go for about $6 a bottle.
To create the most expensive hot sauce on the market, Beeson started off with a $540 bottle of Champagne Cognac that had been aged for more than 60 years. Using the best of the best has its advantages, like an unmatched level of flavor, but the downside is that sizable price sticker. These bottles sold rather quickly, but Beeson didn’t hesitate to start working on another exclusive hot sauce, this time starting off with a $1,3000 bottle of rum that resulted in a $500 price tag for the 2nd edition of Swamp Dragon Private Reserve. Beeson swears by this stuff, and not just because he’s the inventor. He even drizzles Swamp Dragon on Rice Krispies Treats and baklava, according to The Advocate.
