Entry to the world famous Tabasco Plant on sleepy Avery Island, Louisiana.
Some of the stunning scenery we enjoyed on our recent visit to Avery Island.
The brick facade of the Tabasco plant — looks a bit like a military stockade.
We toured on a Saturday afternoon, so the bottling plant was not in operation.
Eileen and the boys enjoying the tour & learning more about Scoville Units.
The company store truly does offer all things Tabasco — bring lots of $$$!
These former oak bourbon barrels are used to age the spicy red pepper mash.
Interesting choice of bait, huh?
You can even try Tabasco ice cream — sweet & smooth with a fiery finish!
Avery Island is home to a massive salt dome — first discovered back in 1862.
Another interesting tour nearby is the Konriko Rice Mill …
The Koriko (Conrad Rice Company) mill is technically in New Iberia, LA.
Konriko’s rice (stored in the above silo) has a fresh, nutty taste.
These rustic sacks of Konriko pecan rice make for great take-home gifts.
