Kick is what happens when you take peppers, vinegar and salt and age them for 3 years. It’s what elevates a love for pizza into lust, turns great sauces into legendary ones and transforms your everyday Bloody Mary brunch into one of the best days of your life. Kick is what makes this world of flavour go round and is why more than 164 million bottles of TABASCO® Sauce are consumed every year in over 180 countries.

History Of TABASCO®

According to family tradition, TABASCO® Original Red Sauce was created in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny. A food lover and avid gardener, McIlhenny was given seed of Capsicum frutescens peppers that had come from Mexico or Central America.

Edmund planted the seeds on Avery Island in South Louisiana, he nurtured the plants and delighted in the spicy flavour of the peppers and in so doing he started the story of TABASCO® brand Pepper Sauce.
