Often rough sea voyages caused some of the bottles to break. The practice of wrapping each bottle in a paper wrap was devised to protect the bottles from breakage.
Wrapping bottles is no longer technically necessary, the custom has endured, and the wrap has come to symbolize the rich heritage and premium quality of Lea & Perrins® sauces, a tradition dating back to 1835.
Lea & Perrins® is the oldest commercially bottled condiment in the U.S.
To this day, the recipe remains a closely guarded secret and only a privileged few know the exact ingredients. To protect the sauce from imitators, the famous Lea & Perrins® signature was put on the label of the bottle, as it appears today. Lea & Perrins remains true to the spirit of the original recipe, combining ingredients from around the world and aging the sauce in wooden casks for 18 months for a richer, smoother flavor.
