Move over Europe.
Many standout vinegars beloved by chefs and home cooks are European, but American Vinegar Works is trying to change that. They source phenomenal American-made craft wines, beers and premium ingredients for all of their small-batch vinegars. As part of its creative process, the company revived a small-batch fermentation process from the early 1800s. Every vinegar is aged in 25-gallon oak barrels, relatively small containers that preserve the alcohol’s flavors.
