Melfor is a classic you will find in every Alsatian kitchen. Made from alcohol vinegar, honey and plant infusion, it is as flavorful but less acid than classic vinegars. Melfor is the perfect base for vinaigrette dressing. See our recipes.
Melfor's recipe was put together by Fernand Higy in 1922 and has been kept secret to this day. The Higy family still runs this emblematic Alsatian business.

I am from Alsace where this vinegar comes from. For a time you could not buy it outside Alsace. I cannot stand the wine vinegars and when I cannot find Melfor I will rather use lemon juice for my vinaigrettes and mayonnaise.

This vinegar is smooth--no acidic bite. For simple vinaigrettes it's just the best I've ever tasted!

You only have to use it one time to be hooked forever.

It is a secret blend of vinegar, honey, and herbal infusion. It makes a superb vinaigrette. Others who are counting calories find the vinegar flavorful enough on its own for a fat-free dressing. Melfor vinegar also can be used for deglazing your pan after sautéing fish, chicken, or pork.
This product has a unique flavor. Highly recommended!
