We learned so much about the Tabasco company, the 150 year heritage of the brand and the family behind it all. We truly loved the entire experience. Everyone was so nice to us and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Tabasco factory. The self guided tour was great and the staff were so welcoming and friendly. The restaurant had amazing food for all tastes and Janet who took the time to explain the menu was brilliant.
