The Artisan Malt Vinegar Company make small batches of malt vinegar following slow traditional production methods, underpinned by eight years’ experience brewing fine Cornish real ales. Then they sit back and allow the vinegar to mature with oak.
The result is a mellow acidity, with a delicious, mouth-filling, rounded flavour. Natural, unpasteurised, and unfiltered, Artisan Malt Vinegar brings a touch of class to chips, but it can also be used wherever you might use a fine wine or balsamic vinegar: ideal for dressings, marinades and sauces, as well as sublime chutneys and relishes. It is equally at home on the delicatessen or grocery shelf, as a beautiful addition to the restaurant table, or as an ingredient in the fine-food kitchen.
