There's a certain cachet to housemade products - and wine vinegar is no exception. Good wine makes good vinegar, and good vinegar is a stellar addition to your kitchen. 

Making vinegar  is a simple process once you’ve got hold of a vinegar mother. A vinegar mother is a gelatinous disc that looks like a slice of wobbly raw liver. It’s composed of a form of cellulose and acetic acid bacteria (mycoderma aceti) that develops on fermenting alcoholic liquids, and turns alcohol into acetic acid with a little help from some oxygen in the air.

Using our Barrel-Aged Vinegar Instructions, a vinegar barrel and a vinegar mother, you'll be rewarded with the full crisp flavors and nuances of your very own barrel-aged wine vinegar in no time!
