Tabasco sauce

Tabasco is an American brand of hot sauce created from vinegar, tabasco peppers, and salt. Although tabasco peppers were initially grown only on Avery Island, they are now mainly cultivated in Central America, South America, and Africa. The company has multiple varieties sold throughout the world, like red sauce, habanero, chipotle, sriracha, and Trinidad Moruga scorpion.
