this-built-america-tabasco-mcilhennyAvery Island, Louisiana (October 21, 2014) – This week, TABASCO and their iconic sauce represent Louisiana on AOL’s This Built America editorial series. You may know where the legendary TABASCO sauce is made, but do you know how it’s made?

With three simple ingredients – and a lot of patience – TABASCO’s owners, the McIlhenny family, have turned sauce making into a science. Current President and Chief Executive Officer Anthony “Tony” Simmons overseas a product that, despite its minimal ingredients, actually takes three years, and thousands of miles to make.

To see how that all happens, be sure to visit http://www.thisbuiltamerica.com/louisiana. Or, follow This Built America on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+.

TABASCO joins a national movement in This Built America that is devoted to supporting American companies and American-made products. AOL is proud to support the effort along with sponsor Ford Trucks. Through the year, the editorial and video teams will explore 50 states in 50 weeks to bring 50 stories of the people who are bringing back manufacturing to America. The platform is produced in coordination with Man Made Content.
