Hand made in small batches,our vinegar's have had very good acceptance at our roadside stall and in the retailers that are carrying our products.
We started making Apple Cider Vinegar during the 2012 apple season and have expanded our production with our Gourmet vinegars. All our vinegar's are made using our fruit at our orchard. Apples are the mainstay of our vinegar's and are used to make Apple Cider Vinegar. Apple Cider Vinegar is made from our apples,crushed and juiced then allowed to wild ferment into Apple cider. The sugars in the juice are converted to alcohol. The apple cider is then placed into our vinegar vats and the alcohol is converted to acetic acid. We then put the vinegar into wine barrels for aging. This process ensures a healthy natural vinegar which includes the 'mother'. Our Apple cider vinegar is not filtered or pasteurised. This vinegar is sold to health food shops and at our roadside stall when it is open. Using Apple cider vinegar as a base we have created a range of flavoured vinegars. Fruits from our orchard are used to produce vinegar's that can be used in salad dressing, sauces and to add flavour to many meals.
Raspberry, Blueberry, Cherry(made from 100% cherry juice), Sweet Apple Cider and Quince(made from 100% quince juice) vinegars are currently made. We are experimenting with pear, fig and persimmon vinegar.
All these vinegar's are made in small batches then filtered and hand bottled. We do not add any sugar, colouring or preservatives to our vinegars.
We have now completed our new vinegar shed and have installed a complete new juice line,together with the new vinegar vats and a lot more vinegar barrels.
