Paying 35 bucks for a 6 fl. oz bottle of hot sauce might sound foolish, but when you get a limited edition TABASCO 150th Anniversary Diamond Reserve Red Sauce presented in a tiny champagne-like bottle, it makes all the sense in the world.
Released to celebrate the 150th birthday of the world’s most popular hot sauce, this fiery condiment incorporates a selection of “the finest tabasco peppers on Avery Island, chosen for their superior color, texture, and robustness.”
After being crushed and mixed with a bit of salt, these special peppers were aged for fifteen years and then mixed with sparkling white wine vinegar. The resulting sauce is said to maintain the signature flavor and kick of the original while adding “exceptional complexity.”
