Kelly McVicker launched McVicker Pickles in 2012 to bring her love for pickling and food preservation to the masses. Born and raised in Kansas, she learned all about pickling and canning from her grandmas Margarett and Harriet. Kelly brought those traditions with her to San Francisco where she soon found herself haggling over boxes of cucumbers at the farmers market, and loving it.
Gillian Fitzgerald came from Ireland to San Francisco in 2010. She's been a purveyor of fine cocktails in various establishments around the city ever since. She joined McVicker Pickles as part of her quest to make the perfect Bloody Mary mix. The result, Proud Mary, is a thing of wonder.
