McIlhenny Company which makes Tabasco sauce turned 142 years old this year. An amazing feat by anyone’s standards. Consider a few more about the company. Its first product remains its flagship. Its first packaging design is pretty much the same as it was those 142 years ago. Its products account for 20 to 25% of the market according to industry best guesses.

Now in its fourth generation the McLhenny family still holds and runs the company with Paul McLhenny as president and CEO and sells its products throughout the world.
