Made the reservations and stopped here after work on a recent trip to California. Check in and head to the training room for a quick overview and safety talk. We climbed into the cart and our guide, Claudia, drove us around the building tot he back. Along the way we passed several truck bringing peppers into the building.

We were taken through the bottle manufacturing, bottle and blue barrel storage area among other places. The grinding room was off limits on the day that we were there as they are ramping up for grinding season. Maybe next time that will be open.

After the tour and as usual, you exit through the gift shop. T-shirts /, posters, and other swag are available for purchase at very reasonable prices. 2 thumbs up for the tour guide as she was thorough and personable.

The tour is very interesting and the tour leader very knowledgeable about the history of the product and the manufacturing process. Everything except the bottle caps are made in-house. Produce is from local farms. All chilis used in the sauce are from a single farm. September is chili grinding season when special tours (also free) are available on the weekends. Lots of fun stuff in the gift shop.

Amazingly modern and huge manufacturing and storage plant. Seems like an efficiently run place. Smell inside the plant was not overwhelming at all. Tour was short and wished there were hands on components to the tour.

Came here with work to check out the facility. We toured the facility and learned everything we have ever wanted to know about Siracha. At the end of the tour we went to the company store where we loaded up on hot sauce, snacks, and memorabilia.

Easy to find, free parking, free tour. Sign up online at the website, reserve your tickets early as they sometimes tend to sell out, especially at harvest time. The tour was informative, loved the story of the owner. A true American dream story. Hearing about the company and the owner made me like the product even more. The tour was about 45 minutes and you should allow 15 minutes for the gift shop. Everyone in the tour received a free bottle of sauce. Great experience, even the non Sriracha lovers in our group liked the tour.
