"Tabasco" sauce is the first brand of hot sauce made from tabasco peppers (Capsicum frutescens var. tabasco), vinegar, and salt, and aged in white oak barrels for three years. It has a hot, spicy flavor and is popular in many parts of the world.Tabasco is trademarked as the brand name for the variety of tabasco sauce marketed by one of the United States' biggest makers of hot sauce, the McIlhenny Company of Avery Island, Louisiana. Often, the word "tabasco" is rendered in lowercase when referring to the botanical variety, but in uppercase, "Tabasco," when referring to the actual trademarked brand name. While there are many other kinds of "hot pepper sauce" on the market
Born in 1815 in Hagerstown, Maryland, Edmund McIlhenny moved around 1840 to Louisiana, where he worked as a banker. When he was ruined financially by the American Civil War, friends and family suggested that he enter a new trade by marketing a pepper sauce that he had originally developed for his own table.
Following this advice, McIlhenny grew his first crop of commercial tabasco peppers on Avery Island in 1868, and he sold his first sauce made from this crop in 1869.
In 1870 McIlhenny obtained letters patent for his invention, which he packaged in cork-top two-ounce bottles with diamond logo labels very similar in appearance to those in present-day use. According to family tradition, McIlhenny had used recycled cologne bottles when bottling his sauce for his own table. Regardless, he used brand new cologne bottles when he began to sell it commercially.
McIlhenny first sold his sauce primarily along the Gulf Coast of the southern U.S., particularly in New Orleans, the nearest major city. By the mid-1870s he had introduced Tabasco sauce to most major U.S. cities, and by the end of the decade he was exporting the product to Europe and elsewhere in limited quantities.
