Our Story

At SuckerPunch Gourmet we believe in Big Taste That Packs A Punch!

What does that mean? It means all our products are made with spice and fresh ingredients. It means you can count on us to always craft delicious, flavorful goods. It means our ingredient lines will be short, sweet and only include things you can pronounce.

Our philosophy is that eating and drinking should be packed with flavor. Whether it's pickles or Bloody Mary mix, we promise to deliver taste that will make you say "wow!" We hope to knock you out... in a good way!  

The Beginning

SuckerPunch Gourmet was founded in 2011 by stay-at-home dad, part-time artist, and champion of flavor, David van Alphen.  David set out to create a better pickle. Tired of all those pansy cucumbers in brine, he began experimenting with spice combinations galore. After months of trial and error, he created what we believe is the “perfect” pickle. At first the 15 spices give you a slight taste of dill, followed by a bit of sweetness and then POW, you get sucker punched with a bold rush of flavors and a little bit of heat.  And, that is how our Spicy Garlic Original Pickle was born. 


Since those humble beginnings we have added a complete line of pickles and two Bloody Mary mixes to our family of taste sensations. Regardless of the product, we promise you bold flavor that will knock you out!
