BRINGING THE BASIC BACK
China has a documented history of vinegar-making that spans over 3,000 years, dating from the Zhou Dynasty (1046 BC–256 BC). The Chinese made vinegar (cho), from grains such as barley, millet, and rice, and from fruits including dates, cherries, and peaches, and from honey. In China, there’s an old saying — “Firewood, rice, oil, salt, soy sauce, vinegar, and tea are indispensable in our daily life” — vinegar played an important role in Chinese lifestyle for its healing properties for the body. Drinking vinegar is a practice dating back thousands of years. It’s considered an elixir because of its known health benefits. Every part of the world has their version of drinking vinegar. Our goal is to bring the basic back combined with modern needs.
We will never compromise on quality, and use only the best ingredients that nature has created.
