Lea & Perrins. Lea & Perrins is a division of the H. J. Heinz Company. The Lea & Perrins company began around 1800, when local nobleman Lord Sandys decided to attempt to imitate a sauce he had tried in Bengal. Employing chemists John Lea and William Perrins, the two made an unsavory sauce and abandoned the leftover jars in a basement. When the chemists went back to try the sauce years later, they had discovered the aging process gave the sauce a delightful flavor.

The Worcestershire sauce was first sold in 1838. It is still being produced from the factory Lea and Perrins built, the Midland Road factory in Worcester.

Invention of the Bloody Mary In 1921, a bartender at Harry's New York Bar in Paris had accidentally mixed vodka with tomato juice and Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce and inadvertently created the Bloody Mary.
