Justin was living in a small town in Wisconsin while perplexed a the extensive ingredient list on a bottle of fancy mustard. He began researching and testing out mustard recipes for families and friends as a new hobby, striving to keep his ingredients simple. With the help of a friend, Bryan, Justin began Mustard and Co. in 2013. What started out as just a two man operation evolved into a powerhouse in the world of small batch acourtremonts.
From the beginning, Justin and Bryan had a vision to borrow simple, traditional techniques to develop a process that ensures the mustard seed is never subjected to heat, thus preserving its spicy volatile oils. Couple this approach with premium ingredients like organic extra-virgin olive oil and a flavorful balsamic vinegar, and no thickeners or emulsifiers. All of Mustard and Co.'s ingredients are recognizable, so what you see is what you get - fresh, raw, and bold mustard.
