XO Sauce was created in the 1980’s and got its name from XO (extra old) Cognac, a sophisticated Western liqueur, popular in Hong Kong, to signify its prestige and high quality.
Because making XO sauce from scratch is time-consuming and requires skills and costly ingredients, it was considered to be an extravagant and exclusive product for a long time. But Lee Kum Kee’s ready-made XO sauce has turned this luxurious item into the most convenient and delicious way to create gourmet food at home every day. Now, XO sauce is considered a must-have condiment in any kitchen.
