Andy Harris, CVO (Chief Vinegar Officer)

Twenty years ago, Andy bought his first vinegar crock in a French flea market. He’s been obsessed with making the stuff ever since.

As a food-and-travel writer, magazine editor and excellent cook, Andy has tasted many of the world’s best vinegars. He’s visited the top balsamic producers in Modena, Spain’s finest sherry-vinegar makers, and artisan wine-vinegar producers throughout France, Greece and Italy.

But it wasn’t until he started making his own, in crocks in his garden shed, that he realised the full joy of homemade vinegar. Vinegar Shed was born out of this passion. Now, at his West London HQ, Andy makes a range of artisan varieties in huge French, Italian and Spanish oak, cherry and chestnut barrels.

“It really does become an addictive part of your cooking,” says Andy. “We hope you’ll discover the joys of using, or even making, different vinegars as much as we have.”
