Even in the early years, Edmund McIlhenny knew he had something special. The popularity of TABASCO® sauce was quickly spreading across the Gulf Coast, and by the mid 1880’s, the product was making its way around the world.
To support the company’s seismic growth in modern times, Edmund’s great-grandson, Paul McIlhenny, created the first Country Store catalog in 1987. His hope was to provide quick, convenient access to TABASCO® products for hot pepper sauce fans all over the globe — without having to step foot in a grocery store.
Alive and Thriving
Today, that dream lives on. Operating as an extension of McIlhenny Company, the TABASCO Country Store® is both an online hotspot and brick and mortar meet-and-greet for one of the world’s most recognizable brands. In each of our physical locations, you’ll find exclusive TABASCO® pepper sauces, gear and collectibles not available anywhere else.
