Once October hits Avery Island, there’s only one thing on everyone’s minds: mashing season! To celebrate Tabasco’s annual pepper harvest, we brought the home of the world’s favourite hot sauce to London.

Our brief? Recreate all the best bits of Avery Island for the movers and shakers of the UK restaurant scene, cementing Tabasco’s status as a global brand that goes with pretty much anything you throw at it. Asian, Mexican… You name it.

Our immersive shindig featured food and drink from some of London’s hottest operators (Breddos, Xiringuito and TaTa Eatery), smoky mezcal cocktails, screen printing, mash-tasting and a bright, colourful set that brought to life the brand’s unique identity in the warehouse surroundings of Hackney’s Oval Space.
