Scott Barr Moritz has passed away stemming from complications due to pancreatic cancer. He will forever be remembered for his two loves: music and food. As an exceptional foodie, he co-founded Salvador Molly’s Restaurant, and went on to create the renowned Secret Aardvark Trading Company. Secret Aardvark’s fans are legion and Secret Aardvark habanero hot sauce can be found on the majority of Portland’s restaurant tables. He was the frontman for Scotland Barr & the Slow Drags. As an acclaimed singer/songwriter, he worked tirelessly at his craft developing melodies and writing lyrics, never resting until he felt they were complete.

There is no question that Scott was the heart of the company. Despite this tremendous loss we promise to continue to supply our Secret Aardvark sauces to the tables of Portland and beyond.

Thank you for your support. We couldn’t do it without you.
