Aside from being the #1 hot sauce on the planet, Tabasco has a phenomenal family at the helm, generations of families as employees, laughter that spills into work each day, and an island in the south to call their own.
They practice sustainable farming and have contributed millions to restoring the marshlands after hurricane Katrina. Their story is unique and unsurpassed – we are learning fascinating history of the McIlhenny family, Avery Island and how Tabasco came to be.
It is an honor to be documenting their story of today.
Team Kiel spent a fast and furious 2 days on Avery Island shooting our ongoing project with McIlhenny Company and look forward to our next production scheduled for August!
Took keeps us on our toes with impromptu tasting challenges and rites of passage ceremonies… not to mention the constant humor that keeps us all smiling (if not outright belly laughing)!
