    From the Shelby Tea Cart to Uptown Indigo, we have a history of engaging the community with events, contests, and more. We bring the SPICE.


My name is Duncan Blount. I've been crafting hot sauces and cocktails since 2015. I live here in Shelby, North Carolina with my wife and two spunky kids. Shelby is blessed with world-class BBQ and outstanding local farmers. I believe Shelby could one day be the heart of good hot sauce in North Carolina. Just like I did with the Shelby Tea Cart and Uptown Indigo, I want to bring an idea into reality. I want to bottle the great state of North Carolina and share it with the world. Shelby Spice's mission is to bring people together with flavorful hot sauces and events here in the community and beyond.
