About Us
Mustard and Co. took shape in 2013 on the basis that food is best enjoyed in the company of bold condiments. After months in the kitchen tweaking his original recipe, and only minor injuries, Justin Hoffman teamed up with Bryan Mitchiner to provide high-quality, minimally processed mustard to the masses. The condiment world will never be the same. Mustard and Co. emphasizes quality local ingredients, and traditional techniques that preserve the mustard seed’s inherent, horseradish-like spiciness. This guarantees that you get raw, organic, real mustard flavor with each taste, keeping your food in good company. Eat boldly.

Picture it: Wisconsin. Small town Justin finds himself staring at the lengthy list of ingredients on a bottle of fancy shmancy honey mustard. Perplexed at why a seemingly simple sauce would require so many additives, he runs home, does some research and whips up his first batch. Over the next handful of years Justin takes to making mustard as more of a hobby, testing it out on friends and family, until he packed up and moved to Seattle. Enter: Bryan. Fresh out of college and intrigued by Justin's mustard making talents, Bryan suggests turning Justin's hobby into a small business. With support from their employer, Molly's - offering after hours kitchen space - Mustard and Co. was born in 2013. Now, years later, what started out as a two man operation has quickly evolved into a powerhouse in the world of small batch accoutrements.

What's so special about our mustard? Did you know that many mustard grinding procedures destroy mustard's pungent spiciness? Mustard users all over the world have been limited to the bland side of the mustard seed’s character. Here at Mustard and Co., we've borrowed simple, traditional techniques to develop our own process to ensure that the mustard seed is never subjected to heat, thus preserving its spicy volatile oils. You may think it's horseradish that gives our mustard a kick, but rest assured, it's fresh ground mustard. Couple this approach with premium ingredients like organic extra-virgin olive oil and a flavorful balsamic vinegar, and you have a set of mustards like none other.
Practices
Right away, you'll notice that our mustard is thinner than others you've been accustomed to. This is primarily due to our determination to preserve the raw properties of each of the ingredients we use. In other words, we opt not to add in any thickeners or emulsifiers. You'll recognize all of our ingredients, so what you see is what you get - fresh, raw, and bold mustard.
