Every Salsa tells a story, doesn’t it?
Well, Western Spirit Salsas absolutely have a few. It all began in a small farmhouse outside Kutztown, PA. When I was a brewery rep. in the early-mid ’90s, I would host beer tasting events for home-brewers and professionals alike. During those sessions we would eat lots of snacks, chips and salsa was the predominant choice. We tried SO many salsa’s and we were very often disappointed with the flavor and largely no HEAT!
So being a foodie early on I set out to do a better salsa. It didn’t take long before ‘Butchy’s Salsa’ was a cult following.
Not long after I moved to the Rocky Mountains between Colorado and Montana. I held jobs in several industries over those years as most do but the food and brewing industry were my main sources of living. While the salsa making slowed down the demand and conversations did not.
All too often- I heard that this should not ‘end up in the dust bins of great ideas’. So it was that motivational prodding that gave ‘Butchy salsa’ a serious launch. I searched for a company name, image/icon and once the ‘buffalo shaman’ from some rock art from an archeological site in SW Colorado presented itself during my research, my search was over. It was a perfect image to accompany the ‘western spirit’ name that kept coming around.
This image that is situated front and center on the package is the epitome of the Western Spirit. Antiquity or ancient art lifted from an archeological site in the SW where many petroglyphs reside. He is a Buffalo Shaman, a revered medicine man with great respect and spiritual powers. He connected the people with the spirits and now connects the people with a salsa.
