While visiting New Orleans we decided to check out the Tabasco factory. I found it interesting. They really did a great job to display the facility. The property was well maintained. Well worth the drive.

The self guided tour was very interesting. Gift shop with all the Tabasco items you would want. The smell of Tabasco was in the air when we stepped out of the car. Very enjoyable and interesting visit.

If you are curious about the Tobasco making process then you will definitely learn about it here. The self-guided tour uses a numbered map and press-button videos to explain the process as you visit each station of the factory. Pretty cool, learned a lot. If...More
