The spice blend business is on a dramatic rise and is slated to be a $43 billion category by 2030. Blackbeard Spice Company is making a name for itself in the grilling community. After only two years of being in business, they are selling product in over 12 states with retail locations all over Georgia and South Carolina. "Demand for our products has grown exponentially", says Jeremy Miller, Co-Founder of Blackbeard Spice Company. “While demand for our products has never been stronger, our ability to meet this demand is thanks to the incredible team that I have the honor of working with every day”, said Bob Viger, Co-Founder.

Blackbeard Spice Company has an interesting differentiating factor, old world flavors. Both Bob and Jeremy have a passion for history and have painstakingly researched old world spice blends and are infusing these concepts into their products. Specifically, they have focused on the origin of BBQ dating back to the 1500's. Pirates learned the style of grilling while in the Caribbean islands. They took it to the next level and created a unique way of grilling and is the basis of smoker grills today. While there are many spice blend competitors in the market, Blackbeard Spice Company remains a unique company and has brought flavors right out the pages of history.

The global seasoning & spices market size was valued at USD 35.38 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2022 to 2030. The growing awareness of the health benefits of spices & herbs along with the rising number of people cooking at home has been attributed as the major factor driving the growth of this market. Furthermore, the increasing willingness of buyers to pay a premium price for new and unique flavors has been fueling the market. Local cuisines have been gaining international recognition, owing to their flavors of cuisines, which are also driving the growth.

About Blackbeard Spice Company

How it Got Started
Founded in 2020, Blackbeard Spice Co. is a project started by Jeremy Miller and Bob Viger in Augusta, GA. Jeremy, with a passion for history and Bob, with a love of grilling decided that the grilling landscape needed to go back to its roots.

Smoking and slow-roasting meat was a method perfected by pirates, so many years ago, on the beaches of the Caribbean. Their process was called barbacoa which later became BBQ. Using a unique combination of spices, pirates developed the flavors that grillers everywhere enjoy.

A Return to Flavor
Blackbeard's uses a Small Batch process to ensure that every bottle is perfected and reflects the bold flavors that the original grillers love and enjoyed around a beach campfire.

Blackbeard's spices are strong on flavor without being overwhelming. Though Blackbeard’s Spice is geared toward chicken and seafood (imagine the most amazing smoked wings you’ve ever had) and Redbeard’s Spice toward pork (think juicy, grilled pork tenderloin), there’s more to these rubs than meets the eye. They taste great on roasted veggies, in eggs or even on the rim of a cocktail, transporting you to the Caribbean no matter what the weather is doing.

For the Love of History
With a passion to bring back flavors that were lost long ago, Blackbeard Spice Co. strives to keep the grilling adventure alive, bring new spices to your table and have fun being a pirate!
