Prospector Release #2
**Fair warning, this limited-run product will only be available once. Due to the specialness of this product, it was crafted in extremely small quantities. Get it while it lasts!**
We're constantly digging through the depths of our imaginations in the hopes of unearthing a creative breakthrough. The Prospector Series spotlights single-batch, underground, and very limited releases for when our inspiration strikes gold.
Made with the chef revered Aji Amarillo chile, which makes up one third of the holy trinity of Peruvian cuisine, these uniquely sour pickles beautifully showcase this bright, fruity pepper. We are proudly reviving this long-discontinued, but foodie-favorite product from our early days for one last run before it fades into the amarillo sunset.
Aji Chile Sours were a staple in our pickle offerings in the beginning of The Real Dill. These incredibly simple pickles were a favorite among the foodies and chefs who were familiar with this special chile pepper. Eventually, we discontinued Aji Chile Sours in 2014, after two short years. At the time, we were scaling The Real Dill and had to make the difficult choice to focus on the pickles in our lineup that had mass appeal. However, we always loved this recipe and since 2014, it has remained in the back of our minds. Click here for the full story.

Here's the dill. We’re relentlessly committed to making the absolute best products of their kind, and when it comes to quality, we make no compromises. This means we only use the finest fresh, natural ingredients that you recognize from your pantry or garden. None of our ingredients are created in a test tube. We proudly handcraft all of our products in small batches from scratch, in Denver Colorado, with care, intention, and love.
Giving Back. We launched our Charitable Partner Program to achieve our goal of giving back through fundraising and outreach. Every year, we select one nonprofit partner to be the recipient of our donations.
Environmental Commitment. We’re proudly a zero-food-waste company, which repurposes or donates 100% of its food scraps to a local nonprofit that composts them for their urban farming programs.
How long do your pickles last?
They’ll last as long as it takes for you to eat them as long as all of the product inside of the jar is submersed in the brine. If one of the pickles is sticking out above the brine and it sits like that for several months, mold can develop. Otherwise, the pickles won't go bad. We do, however, recommend eating them within one year of when they were made. The date that they were made is stamped on the jar. After one year they will start to degrade in quality and become less crunchy.
Do your pickles need to be refrigerated?
Only after they have been opened. Until then, they are safe to store in a cool, dark place.
Are your pickles vegan?
All of our pickles are vegan except for our Jalapeño Honey Dills.
Are your pickles gluten free?
All of our pickles are gluten free except for the pickles in our Briners & Brewers series.
How many pickles come in a jar?
The number of pickles that come in a jar depends on the size of the cucumber, but on average, there are around 16 pickles in each 32 oz jar and around 30 pickle slices in each 16 oz jar. Regardless of size, we pack the jars with as many pickles as we can fit! You’ll never see empty space in the jar where we could have fit more pickles.
How do make you your pickles so crunchy?
There are a lot of precautions that we take to make our pickles crisp. The single most important thing is that we never compromise when it comes to the quality of the ingredients we use, and we ensure we receive the freshest cucumbers that we can find.
Which one is your “regular dill”?
The Caraway Garlic Dills is the closest thing we make to a traditional dill pickle.
Can you eat the extra stuff in the jars?
Yes! With just a little bit of creativity you can use everything in the jar. Check our Recipes page for some great recipe ideas.
Are your pickles fermented?
No, they are preserved using a vinegar-based brine.
Where do the cucumbers come from?
Depending on the time of year, they may come from Colorado, California, Florida, Georgia, Mexico, Michigan, or wherever we can find the best quality cucumbers at the time.
Why do you put sugar in your dill pickles?
We use a marginal amount of sugar because it helps to create a roundness with the salt and vinegar, which makes those flavors a little less harsh and pronounced. We only add a marginal amount of sugar, and most people do not even detect any sweetness.
Are your products available in stores near me?
They might be! Check out our store locator page to see if there are any stores near you that carry our products.
Are your products made with preservatives or other weird ingredients?
No, we do not use any ingredients that you would not recognize from your own pantry or garden. Check out the list of ingredients on the “Nutrition & Ingredients Tab” on each product page.
Do you make it or is it made by a contractor?
We do not contract out any production. We make everything in our own facility (called The Dillery) in Denver, Colorado.
