TABASCO® by McIlhenny Company — Founded in 1868 on Avery Island, Louisiana

The first-family of hot sauce is fiercely protective of its brand. Tony Simmons, CEO of the McIlhenny Company and great-great grandson of the founder, explains that the Tabasco name is one of its biggest assets.

Tony Simmons, McIlhenny Company CEO, tells Sanjay Gupta how a talented food scientist named Charlie Chang creates new flavors of Tabasco, one of the most iconic brands in the world.

McIlhenny Company CEO Tony Simmons displays one of the earliest bottles of Tabasco, which he estimates was probably made in the early 1870s. It is only slightly different from the bottles the company uses today.
