Fermenting chili peppers in oak whiskey barrels

I have a completely new appreciation for Tabasco sauce after stumbling across this episode of How It’s Made. Around the 1:12 minute mark, there it is.

Maybe you knew this all along, but this nearly 150 year old product is a chili pepper and salt mash fermented in oak whiskey barrels for three years!
