Located in downtown Sacramento, Preservation & Co. is more than just a place to get fun and different jams, jellies, preserves and cocktail mixes. For owner Jason Poole, it's a way to represent his passion for food and share it with others.

Poole, a local bartender for nearly two decades, knew the one item that all bartenders needed behind their bar: a really good Bloody Mary mix. Using local ingredients, and his own recipe, he came up with a mix that in 2014 he began making and marketing to his old friends in the bartending and restaurant worlds. Now known as "The Brine Boss" of Sacramento, Poole has 12 different Bloody Mary blends, as well as a dozen unique barbecue sauces and a handful of flavors of pickled local vegetables. Poole is officially putting his own touch on the local food movement in the city that calls itself America's Farm-to-Fork Capital.

From beets to Brussels sprouts to carrots, everything at Preservation & Co. is made with local produce and an unwavering commitment to detail. All of the products are made in small batches, with seasonality in mind. For example, Poole's Black Peppered Asparagus is available only during asparagus harvest in the delta region of Sacramento. Poole oversees each step of the process and even bottles and labels many of the products himself. And with new flavors and recipes he's constantly creating, Poole hopes his labor of love can expand into more restaurants and markets across the state in the near future.
