2011 TABASCO® Family Reserve

2011 TABASCO® Family Reserve

Tabasco is probably the worlds best know chilli sauce, the business started in 1868 and just seems to get more and more popular, it’s provides a great introduction to the world of chillies and probably has done so for many many people over the generations. I think it was the first chilli sauce I ever tried.

Each year is seems a selection of the finest Tabasco peppers are used to make a mash that may be destined for the special Family Reserve. These special peppers are mashed with a little of the Avery Island Salt and stored away in white oak barrels for 3 years, some of these barrels are selected to be aged for up to 8 years, the resultant mash is then used to create the very rare Family Reserve..

Now when we say rare there are probably more bottles of this than most of the UK’s craft producers make in a year, but as a percentage of the overall production, this is very rare indeed.

Well in 2011 the McIlhenny Company has decided to make and sell some of the Family Reserve, each bottle of Family Reserve is sealed with green wax and is adorned with a 2011 TABASCO® Reserve medallion certifying its authenticity.

Unfortunately you won’t find this in the UK, it is only available at the company store on Avery Island or on their US web site, we would love to get a bottle of two here at the ChileFoundry to try and maybe to offer to our readers in a competition..hint hint.
