The Brooklyn Brine Co. prides itself on making "damn fine pickles" from organic produce and simple ingredients, and since Esquire Magazine proclaimed them "the best pickle" in their May 2010 issue, their pride is well placed.
These hand-packed jars capture the vibrant character of organic vegetables freshly plucked from the garden. They are the seasonal specialties of Brooklyn Brine, a new breed of pickler dedicated to preserving the art of home pickling while exploring new flavor combinations.
Damn Spicy Pickles start with organic cucumbers brined in apple cider vinegar and water spiced with organic chili peppers, garlic and natural spices. Once they're well and truly pickled, they're hand-stuffed into jars in small batch runs.
Spicy Maple Bourbon
Finger Lakes Distilling's McKenzie Rye goes into every jar of these delightful pickles. But these aren’t a boozy affair. Far from it. The whiskey is judiciously employed as just another seasoning to deeply flavor these verdant disks that were once humble cucumbers.
The predominant flavor of these is sweet and sour, but there is enough smoldering heat to let you know it's there. The maple and whiskey take more of a background role, providing nuance and notes that surely would be lacking in their absence. The whole spices that are in every jar include coriander and mustard seeds. And the onions that are packed in there are delicious to munch on too.
These crinkle cut pickles would be great for dressing up a hamburger and would bring a new dimension to deviled eggs. Or you can simply eat them as a summertime snack to help cleanse or perk up your palate.
Brine and beer, together at last! These Brooklyn Brine Hop Pickles are the result of a brilliant brainstorm between Brooklyn Brine and Dogfish Head. These gourmet pickles will be a hit at any party or a tasty anytime snack.

With a touch of spice, a dash of hops, and a whole heaping helping of outrageous flavor, Brooklyn Brine has created a pickle sensation that you've got to taste to believe.
