Making everything better since 1868

Over the past century and a half, Mcllhenny Company has proven that the secret to the world’s most beloved pepper sauce is craftsmanship. From seed to sauce, generations of artistry have consistently delivered the unique, bold flavour that has become a celebrated tradition around the world. Only the highest quality seeds can become the finest heirloom peppers; which are picked at the peak of ripeness, mashed the very same day with just the right amount of salt. The pepper mash is then sealed in white oak barrels, matured to perfection for three years and then blended with premium distilled vinegar; resulting in a pepper sauce unlike anything else in the world. 

Kick is what happens when you take peppers, vinegar and salt and age them for three glorious 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 fabulous world of flavour go round and is the very reason why more than 164 million bottles of TABASCO® are consumed each and every year in over 180 countries.
