Walking the streets of St. Augustine, you might feel as though you’ve been transported back in time. The nation’s oldest city is home to a culture that’s been carefully preserved over the last 450 years, and one of its most prized possessions is the Datil Pepper. While the origins of the rare pepper are relatively unknown, it’s clear as to who’s utilizing it best: Del Viejo. Loosely translating to “from the Old World,” the brand focuses on preserving the history of the city through their marinades, salsas, and spice blends—all of which harness the sweet heat of that coveted pepper. Founder Parker works alongside his mother and stepfather to ensure quality in every batch, putting their passion for great food into each product they create.
