Although the name comes from the Mexican state of Tabasco, the sauce is a U.S. product produced by McIlhenny Company. Tabasco sauce was first produced in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny, a Maryland-born former banker who moved to Louisiana around 1840. McIlhenny initially used discarded cologne bottles to distribute his sauce to family and friends.
In 1868 when he started to sell to the public he ordered thousands of new cologne bottles from a New Orleans glass supplier. Originally all peppers used in Tabasco sauce were grown on Avery Island. Today peppers grown on the Island are used to produce seed stock, which is then shipped to foreign growers, primarily in Central and South America.
Tabasco brand pepper sauce is sold in more than 185 countries and territories and is packaged in 22 languages and dialects.
