Country of Origin

United States

  • Indian Origins

    The inspiration for Worcestershire sauce originated in India, then made its way to England, where it was popularized and sold commercially since 1837.

  • Vegan Worcestershire Sauce

    While most recipes use anchovies for their signature taste, it’s very unlikely that the original version from India used dried fish. It's far more likely it was vegan.

  • Better Ingredients

    Our traditional recipe uses rich, luscious jaggery instead of white sugar, plus a touch of Indian spices to give our organic Worcestershire sauce a full-bodied authentic flavor

  • Suitable for all Diets

    We wanted our product to be enjoyable for everyone, so we created a gluten-free Worcestershire sauce that is also vegan and organic.

The History of Worcestershire Sauce

Worcestershire sauce was brought to the commercial market by John Wheeley Lea and William Henry Perrins, two chemists (pharmacists) who formed the company, Lea & Perrins in the city of Worcester, in Worcestershire, England. Theirs was the first sauce to bear the name “Worcestershire”; they sold their first commercial bottle in 1837. Their original ingredients included tamarind, vinegar, anchovies and most assuredly asafetida, an aromatic little spice virtually unknown to the West at the time.

According to the company, the sauce came from “the recipe of a nobleman in the county,” Lord Marcus Sandys, the ex-Governor of Bengal who tasted the sauce while dining with friends in India. The story goes that when Lea & Perrins first mixed the recipe together it was too strong and unpalatable so they left it stored in a barrel in the basement. A few years later they rediscovered it, tasted it again and loved it - it had naturally fermented and had become quite tasty.

Yet fermented fish sauces are not as abundant in India as they are in other Asian countries like Vietnam or China, so it was unlikely that the original sauce Lord Sandys sampled in Bengal was a fermented anchovy sauce. It's far more likely that the original Indian version was a vegan Worcestershire sauce featuring tamarind and hing (asafoetida).

Although Lea & Perrin’s was the first sauce to be called “Worcestershire”, theirs is not a certified organic Worcestershire sauce, nor is it vegan.

Common Questions


Is Worcestershire Sauce gluten free?

Ours is! But many other brands out there are not. Even though our gluten-free Worcestershire sauce is manufactured in a gluten-free facility, we still test each batch.

Why make a vegan Worcestershire Sauce?

While other brands are frequently made with fermented anchovies, we believe the original Worcestershire sauce eaten in India was NOT a fish sauce, so we made ours without it.

Is your Gluten-Free Worcestershire Sauce keto?

While ours does contain some carbs from tamarind and jaggery (Indian unrefined evaporated cane juice), it can still be eaten on a keto diet in moderation.

Are soy sauce and Worcestershire Sauce the same?

No! While they are both dark, thin asian sauces packing an umami punch, they are two totally different sauces. Soy sauce is made from fermented soy beans and tastes salty and vaguely nutty. Meanwhile Worchestershire sauce is made from vinegar and tamarind and tastes tangy and mildly sweet.

Does your vegan Worcestershire Sauce need to be refrigerated?

Refrigerate after opening.

Is your Organic Worcestershire Sauce spicy?

Only mildly. Ours has a hint of cayenne pepper to balance the flavors, but we would not consider it hot.
