Tabasco Diamond Reserve — 150 Years in the Making

Hot sauce lovers (and boy they do love their hot sauce!) are most likely rejoicing aloud in their kitchens and restaurant tables all over the world, as Tabasco releases a new commemorative edition hot pepper sauce called Diamond celebration of the brand’s 150th anniversary.

Who knew that Tabasco has been around for 150 years!

It looks like a champagne bottle...and at $35.00 a pop, you should probably pop it before you use it. Gorgeous.

But there’s more...this Reserve kicks off a year long celebration with pop up kitchens popping up around the world that feature innovative recipes with the limited edition sauce. Plus there’s yet another new Bloody Mary recipe as well. Like the world needs another Bloody Mary recipe...actually we do! See below, copied from

What do you think? $35.00 for hot sauce?!? Get it while it’s hot (sorry, couldn’t resist!).

What’s your experience? JIM
