For over 140 years, McIlhenny Company has grown its red peppers on Avery Island. In this time we've learned to balance the needs of our business with those of the land and local wildlife. We age our pepper mash in oak barrels for up to three years before mixing it with salt mined on Avery Island along with distilled-cane vinegar. The result is a pepper sauce with unmatched flavor crafted with over a century's worth of expertise.
A Natural Paradise
Avery Island is a botanical treasure, inhabited by indigenous plants, wildlife, and exotic plant species from around the world. One of 5 salt islands on the Louisiana coast, Avery Island stands at 163 feet above mean sea level and is surrounded by low-lying swamps and marshes.
Jungle Gardens is a 170-acre garden with semitropical foliage, abundant wildlife and a centuries-old Buddha statue. The garden’s rolling landscape stretches along Bayou Petite Anse on the northwest side of the Island.
