Since 2005, Brine has done more than refine an old tradition: We've started a new one. Guided by an international palate, we fuse unique pickling techniques from around the world to create interesting flavors and textures. Brine makes everything in small batches from our home in L.A.. To achieve optimal flavor, our products age from three weeks to four months, making every pickle worth your patience.
California natives Petra Frenkel and Gordon Byun are passionate about pickles. Gordon was raised on a steady diet of kimchi in a traditional Korean family. Helping his mom make the spice mixture and prepare the vegetables, he learned from the best. Petra blames her pickle obsession on her parents who migrated to SoCal from New York. Dissatisfied with the L.A. pickle ecosystem, her parents made kosher pickles at home. Petra became a bit of a pickle-snob, but thinks that everyone should eat delicious things, so it’s really more of an egalitarian snobbery.
