The story of B.P.M Pickles begins in 2016. I’d bought all the kimchis that I could find, and was tired of tiny jars of tame versions that didn’t hit the spot. I decided to make my own at home and began giving it to friends and family. Soon my kimchi batches went from 1 litre, to 3 litres, to 10 litres. Then at one particularly merry dinner party, the idea for B.P.M was born.
Having just returned from 6 months travelling I was the proud owner of a big bushy beard. It was my friend Katja who on trying my latest batch of kimchi said, “you should sell this and call yourself Beardy Pickle Man”. In December 2017, I did exactly that, and the rest as they say is kimchi history...
Kicking Kimchi is my first release, but keep an eye out for more varieties in future. B.P.M was born of culinary curiosity and a desire to experiment. It's in this spirit that the company will grow in years to come!
