About Us

An Artisan Product

At the Artisan Malt Vinegar Company we produce what we like to think is the world’s best malt vinegar.
We are a genuine artisan producer. We try to make the best quality product we can. We use the best ingredients we can. We use procedures which are as simple,
natural and as low-tech as possible. We use as few chemicals as possible; and we
try to make our products available at prices we would be willing to pay.

Salsa Accredited

While ours is genuine, small-scale craft production, everything is made in
accordance with fully-audited procedures. We are SALSA Accredited to ensure that our products are safe, clean, and reliable.


In 2007 (while out making deliveries in their little white van) a question occurred to
Mark and Leonora Nattrass – how do you make malt vinegar? With a background in
craft brewing, they knew a fair bit about malt – but knew nothing at all about malt
They got home. They got out of the van. They did some research to see what they
could find out. They found the stuff you would expect about big companies making
everyday malt vinegar on a large industrial scale. But nothing at all about how to
make the product on a more human scale.​
They looked to see if they could find anyone who made a craft, premium malt
vinegar. They found -- nobody at all!​
So, they started to experiment. And, over time, they found out that it could be done.
It took a great deal of trial and error, but the resulting product was worth the trouble. By
2012 they had created a process which produces a premium, live, natural malt

A Family Business

Over the years the business has grown a little. But we are still a small, family-run outfit managed by Mark, and with son Geoff Nattrass dealing with all the production.


We tend not to know where our product ends up. Most of it goes from us to distributors and wholesalers and we have no idea who they sell it to! So, unfortunately we can’t provide any details of stockists.
You can buy from us direct on this website – or via Amazon or eBay.
For Trade enquiries, best thing is to email, let us know what you’re after, and we’ll get right back to you.
