Welsh Cask Vinegar

Our Welsh Craft Vinegar, as featured recently on ‘Escape to the Country’, is still resting in casks, sleeping, gently taking on flavour and body – and will be available to buy soon.

Description

Our cask-matured Welsh vinegar is designed for culinary and cocktail use, bringing complexity and depth of flavour to your dishes and drinks. 

Welsh beer, fermented in Welsh whisky casks, here in West Wales, helped along with an injection of Orcadian ‘mother’ and guidance from the Orkney Vinegar Company , this low acidity vinegar, our first product, is a true Celtic collaboration.

Beyond a classic beer malt vinegar, the liquid shows evidence of the sweet whisky cask that began its life in US Bourbon country. Its colour demonstrates not only its session beer origins but shines as a golden spirit derived from a heavily charred cask.

To taste, relish in candied citrus peel, oatcakes and a gentle, yet moreish acidity, allowing uses in both the kitchen and your cocktail glass

 

OUR VINEGAR STORY

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the UK and lockdown kicked in, North Pembrokeshire Brewery Bluestone Brewing Co realised that they would lose 3,000 litres of beer that had been destined for the hospitality industry. The team here at the distillery were keen to help and came up with the idea of creating a cask-matured vinegar from this beer. 

Reaching out to Orkney Craft Vinegar for their help and support, and some of their exclusive ‘mother’, and to Penderyn Distillery for Welsh whisky casks, we saved the beer and created this delicious low acidity vinegar.

We will be retailing our Welsh vinegar in single bottles from the distillery and our online shop, and we  welcome trade enquiries.
