We produce our own cider vinegar from 100% pure apple juice pressed from fruit gathered in the orchards of the Dunajec River Valley in Southern Poland. Every springtime we handpick dandelion flowers in local meadows, situated far from any busy roads. We then infuse them in this pure, live vinegar.
Unpasteurized, unfiltered, rich in probiotics.
Fresh, slightly tart

Every variety of Octovnia’s living vinegar has a beneficial effect on gut health, boosts immunity and improves well-being. In addition, the vinegars are enriched with the specific properties of flowers, fruits and herbs from which they are made, well known in folk medicine and often used in modern herbal supplements.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale L.) has anti-diabetic and diuretic properties. It supports immunity, promotes digestion and weight loss.
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.
