Our Original Pickle Juice is made from a base of vinegar which is then infused for 12 weeks with sliced cucumbers, mustard seeds, fennel fronds, turmeric, celery leaf, salt and a bit of sugar to help with the pickling process. Leaving it for this amount of time allows all of the flavour from inside the cucumbers to really mellow out the acidity of the vinegar. Leaving a smooth, elegant umami flavour.
Florence first discovered the idea of drinking pickle juice on a trip to New York where they were drinking it as a Pickleback; a shot of whiskey followed by a shot of pickle juice. Since then bartender’s have been adding it into many different cocktails both alcoholic and non-alcoholic including Dirty Martinis and Bloody Marys. It adds this really amazing depth of flavour thanks to the vinegar. Check out some of our recipes. More recently we’ve been experimenting with it in smoothies and juices thanks to its many health benefits. Which leads us on to...
Yes! Our Original Pickle Juice is filled with electrolytes, thanks to the salt and vinegar, which helps rehydrate your body with nutrients. So if you’ve just finished a workout or been for a run it’s good to have a little shot of pickle juice to get all those nutrients back into your body. It’s also said to be good at helping stop muscle cramps. We also use turmeric which is a great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant – turmeric has always been great for medicinal purposes and has been said to help improve brain power. Then finally, we also use celery which is rich in vitamins and minerals, and fennel, which is great to aid weight management. Not bad for one drink!
Yes, a shot every morning is a great way to start your day. Or if that’s a bit too intense try adding it into a juice. We really like it with mango or beetroot juice.
We think our Pickle Juice is best served chilled, but you can also keep it in your cupboard even once it’s been opened. Unopened, our Spiced Tomato Mix can be kept in a cool dark place, but once opened, please keep it in the fridge and drink within 4 days.
The age old question! Everyone has such different levels of tolerance towards spiciness and we feel we’ve found the perfect inbetween. It’s not too spicy but this allows you to add a few dashes of Tabasco if you like it HOT. And for those less inclined to spice, it’s got enough heat to tickle your tastebuds.
Our products are not alcoholic, but are enjoyed equally with the addition of alcohol or not.
Our Original Pickle Juice and Spiced Tomato Mix both contain: Celery, Mustard and distilled malt vinegar from barley. We use a vegan Worcestershire sauce in our Spiced Tomato Mix so there is absolutely no fish.
As we started to grow, making pickle juice in Florence’s flat in Hackney became impossible. We now make and bottle all our products on her grandparent’s farm in Suffolk near Stowmarket.
