While in his early 20's, Barbarian creator and Pacific Northwest native JC Davis embarked upon an epic journey around Mexico.

Like any intrepid cultural ambassador, he enthusiastically partook in the region’s primary food groups: tacos & margaritas. Little did JC know that his pursuit of adventure, delicious food, and cold adult beverages would eventually lead him to his life’s calling.

Over the course of his journey, JC noticed that limes and lime juice accompanied just about every dish and drink. As such, citrus juicers were everywhere; a simple, utilitarian tool of the people leaving its mark on virtually verish and drink. Upon his return from Mexico, JC found himself smitten with the authentic cuisine and culture of Mexico ­ and the simple lime squeezer was his ticket back on those cold, cloudy Pacific Northwest days.
