In 1868, Edmund McIlhenny harvested his first pepper crop on Avery Island in Louisiana to create TABASCO® Brand Pepper Sauce. More than 150 years later, the same three ingredients that made his TABASCO® Sauce – peppers, salt and vinegar – are aged and bottled by Edmunds’ family on Avery Island, the process virtually unchanged. The careful craftsmanship and versatility of TABASCO® Sauce has made it a friend of chefs, home cooks, bartenders and food lovers worldwide. And the same care we give our products we give to our employee family too! We encourage and support all self-starters to grow and learn in all kinds of ways!
