How we started out:
Hi, we are Matt and Vicky, Husband and Wife from Bristol. We have been pickling shallots for many years for family and friends at Christmas time. Everyone kept telling us we should sell them as they were so impressed as they tasted better than the ones in the supermarket!
When Matt was a child, his Granddad would grow and pickle his own shallots from home. He taught Matt everything he knows and now this tradition has been carried down to the next two generations as Matt's parents also continue to pickle their own shallots.
Matt enjoys experimenting with different spices, flavours, and vinegars. Together we have perfected our recipes and feel confident that you'll agree that there is no better tasting pickled shallot out there!
We now feel that it is the right time to start our own family business selling pickled shallots for you all to enjoy, they really are delicious!
We are a family of five and together we have come up with our name and logo which is ‘The Punching Pickler'. Our eldest Son drew the logo that is being used on all of our labels. The name was finally decided after we were sat as a family watching a big boxing match on a Saturday night.
We hope you enjoy the Shallots as much as we enjoy producing them.
