About tabasco sauce
Tabasco sauce is the brand name for a hot sauce produced by US-based McIlhenny Company of Avery Island, Louisiana.

It has a hot, spicy flavor. Although produced in the United States, it is named after the state of Tabasco in Mexico. The sauce is used in numerous dishes and is the signature spicy flavor in Bloody Mary cocktails.
