Vinegar, derived from the French vin aigre (spoiled wine) has been in use for more than 10,000 years, since it was first discovered in a spoiled cask of wine. Its role has progressed from one of the first medicines for relieving ailments to a thirst quencher for weary soldiers to a gourmet necessity in our modern culinary world.
Southern Skillet Vinegars are small batch, boutique vinegars, hand-bottled and aged over several years. Like our French ancestors, Southerners know you can’t rush a good thing, so we take our time crafting each variety. We work with local Alabama farmers to ensure quality and preserve a true farm-to-table experience.
In theory, creating vinegar is simple: sugar ferments into alcohol, and alcohol transforms into vinegar. In reality, producing consistent, high-quality vinegar is incredibly precise and complex. Imagine the complexity your marinades, sauces and soups will have with vinegars made from fresh fruits and vegetables picked at the peak of ripeness and secretly infused into your best-loved recipes. Southern Skillet Vinegar takes comfort food to a whole new level.
You wouldn’t picnic with your mama’s silver at a service station, so think twice before you put just any vinegar in that savory salad you’re fixing for a family reunion. Most commercially distilled vinegars are made with ethanol, an ingredient added to gasoline and cleaning products. Many contain concentrated fruit juice or syrup infusions. Darlin, we wouldn’t dream of it. Southern Skillet Vinegars are made solely from local, vine-ripe fruits and vegetables, with naturally occurring antioxidants. Our wine vinegars are 100% Natural, Vegan and Raw.
