Scot Montagnino has been a chef for many years in San Francisco. Working in the food industry since his arrival in 1999 from his home state of New Hampshire, he has been in love with the farm fresh aspect of the cuisine in California. Sustainability is paramount to the goals of Scot and Yum Yum Tonics. Good health for oneself and one planet is foremost in the makeup of this company. Having bought the company from his long time friend Caylie See, Scot is pressing on to make it his own and grow the company to be a recognizable brand in the new immerging shrub sector.
Caylie See comes from a long lineage of California chocolatiers, and her inspiration for local food production has arisen from this heritage. Her influences harken back to San Francisco’s prohibition-era trade industry, and she strived to bottle this port town nostalgia in Yum Yum Tonics. Caylie loved developing and imbibing concoctions that toast the many influences of San Francisco’s cocktail culture. She is excited to see her fledgling company continue on with her friend Scot at the helm.
