We have sourced our impressive stoneware vinegar pots from one of France's oldest surviving ceramic manufacturers in Burgundy. Founded in 1875, they still make the mustard pots for Maille and other familiar kitchen items, such as yoghurt pots, water jugs and terrine bowls. Using clay sourced in the Loire valley, Auvergne and Burgundy, the pots are handmade by artisans. Fired at a very high temperature (1250°C) then fixed with some unique glazes which makes them non-porous and perfect for storing liquids. Traditional glazed stoneware has always been the ideal material for making and storing vinegar because of its resistance to acid and its total protection from light.
Once you've learnt how to make homemade vinegar, you'll become addicted to its use. We often have a nip to help the digestion, mix it with honey and a little hot water to stave off a cold and add it to our stocks, soups and stews on a regular basis.
