Mother Shrub Drinking Vinegars


Meredyth Archer was first introduced to drinking vinegars as a child growing up in West Virginia when she would drink a sweetened vinegar with her grandmother, who thought it was the answer to everything. Years later, she came across a recipe for sweet fruit vinegar in a family cookbook from the late 1800s, a hand-me-down. She remembered the tart and sweet taste from her youth and decided to make a batch. Many shared batches later, MOTHER shrub drinking vinegars was born.

Black Cherry is a combination of Virginia-made organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar, pressed juice from organic black cherries, and organic cane sugar.

Cranberry is a combination of Virginia-made, organic apple cider vinegar,  pressed juice from organic cranberries, and unrefined organic cane sugar. A tart and sweet combination delicious splashed in your bubbly of choice including hard seltzer or hard cider. Or, drizzle over berries and pound cake. Mix with vodka to make shrubbed-up versions of the classic Cosmo or Cape Codder. Also refreshing mixed with gin and soda and garnished with a sprig of mint.

Ginger contains Virginia-made, unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar, pounds of fresh ginger, and organic cane sugar.

Grapefruit is a combination of Virginia-made raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar, pressed organic pink grapefruit and organic cane sugar. It is excellent paired with tequila for a Paloma, shrub-style, or mix with sparkling water and garnish with rosemary for a refreshing soda.

MOTHER shrub's Salted Honey has received accolades from Bon Appetit’s Healthyish blog, the Kitchn blog and even garnered a mention on The Splendid Table podcast.

Pineapple is a combination of sweet, creamy pineapple and tart apple cider vinegar balanced with just enough cane sugar and finished with a hint of cinnamon and clove. It’s our new favorite! Delicious paired with mezcal, tequila, bourbon, rum, vodka, and sparkling water.
