Tabasco is turning 150 this year. To mark the occasion, the good people at McIlhenny Company, on Louisiana’s Avery Island, have just released a new, limited-edition Diamond Reserve Sauce that’s spicy enough to heat up any sesquicentennial. The “champagne of pepper sauce,” as they’re calling it, uses Avery Island’s finest Tabasco peppers, which have been aged for fifteen years and then mixed with sparkling white wine vinegar.
This celebratory, limited edition TABASCO Diamond Reserve Sauce is made from a selection of the finest tabasco peppers on Avery Island, chosen for their superior color, texture and robustness. These peppers are mashed with a small amount of salt, then aged – some for up to fifteen years – and blended with sparkling white wine vinegar. The resulting pepper sauce has exceptional complexity, while maintaining the signature flavor and vibrancy for which TABASCO Sauce is celebrated. 6 fl. ounces $34.95. Hot.
