Pepper Sauce

That’s Cajun for a lot of pepper sauce. When all 4 production lines at our Avery Island factory are in operation, more than 700,000 2-oz. bottles of our Original Red Sauce can be made in a single day. We label bottles in 22 languages and dialects and ship them from Avery Island to more than 180 countries and territories around the globe.

Where do all the peppers come from? Our very own pepper seed stock. Each year during harvest, McIlhenny family members personally select the best pepper plants in the field to use for seed. The seeds from those select plants are treated and dried for use the following year; they are stored both on Avery Island and in a separate bank vault as an added precaution.
