Gingras apple cider vinegar

Move over, balsamic, there’s a new vinegar star in town that’s rich in flavour, incredibly versatile and locally produced: Gingras apple cider vinegar. Located in Rougemont, QC, Gingras has been growing, picking and pressing apples on site for generations, and although they stay true to their classic traditions, they’re pushing the envelope when it comes to bold new flavours. This one-ingredient-wonder is aged in stunning French Oak casks, kept unpasteurized and bottled by hand to transform straight-up fruit into something truly amazing. From a fresh take on raspberry to aging the original in bourbon casks, Gingras is taking vinegar to a whole new level. They’ve even crafted vinegar pearls! I’ve been absolutely hooked from the first taste and know you will be too.
