Tabasco Family Reserve Sauce is a premium and limited-edition hot sauce made by the McIlhenny Company. It is aged for up to eight years in oak barrels, which gives it a richer, more complex flavor than the regular Tabasco sauce. It is made with the same ingredients as the original sauce, but with a higher proportion of pepper mash, the blend of aged peppers that gives the sauce its heat and flavor. The sauce is known for its smooth, well-rounded taste and long finish.
The Family Reserve is only made in small batches, and it is not available for sale in all areas. It is generally more expensive than the regular Tabasco sauce and is often considered to be a gourmet or collector's item. Some people use it as a condiment, while others use it as an ingredient in cooking to add a more intense flavor to the dishes.TABASCO is also used as an ingredient in many dishes, such as Bloody Mary cocktails, gumbo, and jambalaya. It is also gluten-free and non-GMO. The company is still family-owned and operated and is based in Avery Island, Louisiana.
