Apple Cider Vinegar aged in a Rye Whiskey Barrel
We aged our apple cider vinegar in a rye whiskey barrel from a local distiller. It imparts a smoky finish which is great for sipping or in grain-based salads.
Our apple cider vinegar is truly a labor of love. We press freshly-picked organic apples on our small press and ferment the resulting juice in five gallon batches until it becomes a delicious hard cider. We then decant the cider into oak barrels spiked with vinegar mother where, for a year or longer, the cider slowly transforms into apple cider vinegar. This vinegar was aged for an additional year in a rye whiskey barrel. When ready, we lightly filter it and then bottle it up. Our vinegar is never heated and it's packed with probiotics. It's delicious for sipping, versatile in the kitchen and packed with flavor!
