From 100% apple juice pressed from fruit from orchards in the Dunajec River Valley in Southern Poland, we produce our own cider vinegar. We infuse this pure, live vinegar with fragrant rose petals to obtain a delicate vinegar with a rose-floral aroma.
Unpasteurized, unfiltered, rich in probiotics.
Floral, fruity, lightly perfumed, sweet

In the medicine cabinet
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.
Rose petals (Rosa L.) contain polyphenols, antioxidants that work to protect your body from cell damage. These polyphenols have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, 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 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.
