For the production of our live raspberry vinegar, we use the traditional Polish fruit variety "Polana" with the addition of the exceptionally sweet “Polesie". In late summer, because only then do raspberries growing in the mountainous areas of the Dunajec Valley in Southern Poland achieve peak ripeness and taste, they are hand-harvested and pressed, after which they undergo a long, two-stage fermentation, using the traditional Orleans method. After many months of aging the vinegar acquires a clear, rich, red colour and an intense raspberry fragrance.
Unpasteurized, unfiltered, rich in probiotics.
Sweet, unmistakably raspberry

The medicinal use of raspberry (Rubus idaeus) dates back to Roman times. Red raspberries have a unique profile, including, amongst others, flavonoids, anthocyanins and ellagic acid, which are known prevent the progression of cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes and obesity.
Drink 10 ml of vinegar a day in a small glass of water.
Store tightly corked in a cool, dark place. The vinegar may be kept in the fridge, but this is not required for its safe storage.
Our living vinegar contains a culture of acetic bacteria which can cause the formation of a "mother of vinegar". This is a natural, safe and healthy process. If a mother forms in your vinegar, you can simply strain it out before use.
Available in bottles of 100 ml, 250 ml or 500 ml.
