On This Day In Chemistry

August 28th

Pharmacists John Lea and William Perrins began manufacturing Worcester sauce on this day in 1837

Lea and Perrins sauce is still manufactured at the Midlands Road factory in Worcester, where production first began. In 1916 Perrins used some of the profits to found the Dyson Perrins organic chemistry laboratory at Oxford University.
