A distinctive aspect of Spinnakers is the on-premise malt vinegar brewery, unique in North America. Traditional oak barrel aging methods integrate with modern technology to produce naturally brewed malt vinegars such as India Pale Ale, Scottish Ale and Barley Wine. Used by the Chef in many innovative kitchen recipes, the vinegars are available in our Provisions Store, Spinnakers on-site specialty bakery, deli and retail store.
Artisan crafted vinegars for sale: Scottish Ale Malt Vinegar, India Pale Ale Malt Vinegar, Barley Wine Malt Vinegar, Mint Infused Malt Vinegar, Apple Cider Vinegar and Apple Cider, Belgian Abbey Ale Vinegar, Scottish Malt Vinegar, India Pale Ale Malt Vinegar and more depending on what we have in season!
$7.95 - $8.95 per bottle
Spinnakers Scottish Ale Malt Vinegar is used in salad dressings, aromatic sauces, marinades and in many more seasonal items as well. A splash is always suggested on the in house cut fries and is served in the Restaurant and Taproom. This vinegar is also perfect for pickling in larger quantities upon request. It is 5.5% total acidity by volume in 200ml bottles and is available for purchase in our Provisions retail store. Cheers to the ale that made you pucker!
In 1996 Paul Hadfield provided the framework from which the vinegar could be crafted and Jim Pryor implemented the technology. Collectively they have scaled up ancient processes resulting in a pure, full bodied, craft brewed Malt Vinegar.
European and Asian countries have used vinegar through the years, made from varying base ingredients and employed diversely. A robust, full flavoured beer such as Spinnakers' Jamesons Scottish Ale, is the foundation for such a definitive taste in this Malt Vinegar; one that offers a mouth-feel of softness and bittersweet. This precious blend of malts, barley, yeast, water and hops is brought to a particular alcohol level to encourage bacteria growth. The vinegar, which is essentially an acetic acid conversion from alcohol, is nurtured and monitored to ensure it has the appropriate conditions. It is aged over several months in French oak barrels to provide a soft, round finish.
