I bet you don't love Tabasco as much as I do!

Where did the brand name come from?
Edmund McIlhenny came up with the brand name TABASCO® as his second choice. Some scholars say it's a Mexican Indian word that means "land where the soil is hot and humid." This certainly describes the climate of Avery Island that has proved perfect for growing his special variety of hot pepper. Other scholars have put forth that it actually means "place of coral or oyster shell."
McIlhenny originally wanted to call his concoction Petite Anse Sauce (after the island which then was known as Isle Petite Anse). But when family members balked at the commercial use of the family island's name, he opted for the trademark TABASCO®.
What makes Tabasco different from other hot sauces?
The pepper mash used to make the Original Red Sauce is allowed to age for up to three years in white oak barrels and is personally inspected for color and aroma by a member of the McIlhenny family before final production.
This time-honored method assures the unique flavor that is recognized around the world. And because this Original Red Sauce is highly concentrated and so rich in flavor, you use it more sparingly than other pepper sauces – so a bottle lasts a long time!
