Q&A: John Simmons, Sixth-Gen Tabasco Maker, Louisiana

John Simmons of McIlhenny Company, making Tabasco sauce

People across the world associate Tabasco sauce with the very unique, flavorful food culture found here in Louisiana, and we’re honored to be a part of that.”  —John Simmons, tabasco pepper expert, McIlhenny Company, Avery Island

Hot sauce is like salt in Louisiana. People add it to everything.

In New Orleans, about 140 miles east of Tabasco’s headquarters, food is known for its bold spicing. Cayenne pepper gives crawfish their delicious tang, while jalapeños add a subtle, savory kick to cornbread. And Tabasco, perhaps the most famous Louisiana hot sauce, lends its punch to potato chips, mayonnaise, Bloody Marys, and even ice cream.

We wanted to know more about the latter’s regional ties, and there’s no better person to take us back to Tabasco’s roots (literally) than John Simmons of the McIlhenny family and company, which has been making the special sauce since 1868. What began as a way for John’s ancestors to spice up bland, post-Civil War food is now a culinary symbol of Louisiana in 180-plus countries. So, what makes people from São Paulo to Seoul use up every drop—720 per bottle, to be exact—of this pepper sauce? John tells us more about what’s inside that iconic two-ounce bottle.
