THE STU’S STORY
HOW THE PERFECT BLOODY MARY WAS BORN
Living in Chicago, the weekend brunch scene was king. But Stu’s Saturday morning routine had lost its luster. Another round of tasteless Bloody Marys left him wanting more. Bleary-eyed and unsatisfied, Stu waxed poetic about his passion for excellent bloody mary’s and calculated exactly how much of his hard-earned money he was wasting on bad morning cocktails.
A lot. So one day, it dawned on Stu that his hobby of transforming fresh, crunchy cucumbers into slightly sweet, fiery sour pickles might have enormous potential. Stu shared his idea with a friend, threw a generous tip on the table, got up, and set to work hand-crafting the perfect Bloody Mary.
Using his homemade pickle brine as the foundation, Stu built the most complex and consistently satisfying Bloody Mary in the Chicagoland area.
A little while later, Stu and Rudi teamed up as business partners. Today, the pair of old college pals are sending their sour pickles and perfect Bloody Mary mix beyond the borders of the Windy City because everyone deserves to have a truly good morning, especially when that morning demands the perfect Bloody Mary.
