Vinegar No. 3


Vinegar #3 is particularly aromatic, with a strong hint of cloves. It contains basil, French tarragon, chamomile flowers, cloves, marjoram, green peppercorns, turmeric, boswellia, and yacon syrup.

Vinegar #3 has been tested at Campden BRI laboratories and found to be bactericidal against the following pathogens: Pseudomonas, Yersinia, C. difficile, Proteus, Klebsiella, Campylobacter, Eggerthella, Vibrio, and Sphingomonas in vitro. You will receive laboratory documentation with your purchase.

Our vinegar begins with a base of raw apple cider vinegar and has not been homogenised or heat-treated at any point during the process, so the “mother” is still intact in the vinegar. You may or may not see evidence of this in your bottle. You may also notice a small amount of sediment: this is the natural residue of herbs from the steeping process.
