I understand the value of high-quality imported vinegars. However, realized that these are just 100ml bottles, which is very tiny. From the picture you can’t tell and I initially assumed maybe 200 -300 per bottle which is common for that shape.
At only 100ml per bottle, this stuff comes out to $100 per litre. When people usually complain about price on Gourmet.Woot (or whatever we call this), I usually jump in and defend the product and say the price is OK and people are free to buy or not but shouldn’t complain about the price. And now here I am… probably just cranky. Ignore me.
[update] OK what do I know…? it seems that some 3rd-party sellers are asking $30 for one individual bottle from this producer. And reviews are good. Might order…
This is one of the ‘authentic’ vinegar producers in Modena Italy. There products are excellent, and worth the money. If you ever have a chance to tour a facility such as this one, sign up. You will be amazed at the effort and knowledge required to create the real thing.
