Vinegar dates back to the start of civilization itself – well maybe a little after but we are talking about 3000BC as traces were found in Egyptian urns and Babylonian scrolls record the use of vinegar around 5000BC. Known as poor mans wine who would have believed just how many choices we have in selecting this humble ingredient.

Through fermentation great tastes are created and take on the flavours and bring that extra taste and tang to so many dishes.
