Pioneer Virginia restaurateur and chef, Bridget Meagher, founded the Catbird Sauce Company in 2018. Catbird's signature Vahotcha Sriracha Hot Sauce was named a 2021 Good Food Awards finalist after competition in their blind tasting in San Francisco. Vahotcha is made from peppers that are grown, fermented, and aged at her Catbird Hill Farm located west of Charlottesville. The Good Food Awards is an annual award competition for outstanding American craft food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients.

At Catbird we want to make a difference in our customers’ sauce experience and be drivers of change in the food industry. As a chef owned, farm based company frustrated by the lack of quality condiments on retail shelves we sought to forge a new path focused on using the freshest, high quality, local products to create carefully crafted sauces that will alter the landscape of our customers’ food enjoyment. We are on a mission to deliver next level flavors to people who love to eat and love to cook. Our goal is to support local farmers and inspire consumers by delivering next level sauces for adventurous cooks and food lovers.
