Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Willie Smith’s certified organic Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a rustic-style vinegar made from organically grown apples. Like the organic apples we use and the cider we make, our vinegar is also produced on our farm in the Huon Valley


A natural process

The vinegar is a cloudy golden colour, as it is neither filtered nor pasteurised. For this reason, it contains a high content of live vinegar mother. Over time, some vinegar mother may grow in the bottle, creating a small swirl of cloud, or some coating on the side of the bottle. After fermentation, the cider is left in contact with the air to evolve into vinegar. During this process, wild bacteria (vinegar mother) naturally convert the alcohol in the cider to acetic acid, which gives vinegar its characteristic bite and sharp aroma. When the vinegar mother has completed its task, the vinegar is left to settle and mellow before it is bottled.

Farm produced

Our cider vinegar is made using only fresh, undiluted apple juice and so exhibits a higher acid content than many commercial apple ciders. This characteristic of farm-produced apple cider vinegar means that slightly less need be used than most commercial vinegars to achieve acid balance in cooking. Our organic apple cider vinegar has an intense, complex and fresh aroma and will contribute delicious flavour and aroma as well as acidity when used as an ingredient. It is ideal for pickling, vinaigrette, sauces, marinades or wherever your imagination leads you. Apple cider vinegar has long been known to provide health benefits when consumed regularly. We hope you enjoy ours, and we would love to hear about what you create with it.
