Artisan Vinegar, the Secret to Great Food
Slow, Natural Aging
Old Sourpuss Vinegars start with fine grape varietals, grown locally, and turned into fine wine. We make our vinegar using a very old and traditional French “Orleans” method. The wine goes into special oak barrels containing the vinegar “mother” that turns the wine into vinegar. It stays in the mother for months before being transferred to oak aging barrels where the vinegar slowly matures and mellows. No chemicals hurry the process. Finally, the finished vinegar is filtered and bottled raw so that it contains all the healthy goodness of the “mother”.
Good tasting and good for you.
"I am pretty particular about the vinegars I use in my dishes. Old Sour Puss is flavorful and has just the right amount of tang!"
