We have been making our award winning Fruit & Herb Vinegars and Jams for over forty years. They’re now firm favourites with home cooks and professional chefs across the country. Based in Oxfordshire, Womersley Fruit & Herb Vinegars is an independent family-owned, artisan maker of fine fruit vinegars and jams that has been delighting home cooks and chefs alike for many years.

We are passionate about quality. Just like our customers, we want the true, natural flavours of the ingredients to shine through.

When we flavour our Fruit & Herb Vinegars and Jams, we keep the recipes as simple as we can. We try to let the great fruit and herbs we use do most of the work for us. Then we taste test everything until we get the balance just right.

They work with almost anything – so let your own taste buds be your guide. We’ve certainly tried them with almost everything. Try them in your own favourite salad dressing recipes - or just as they are to give a bag of salad leaves some bite. Drizzle straight from the bottle on sturdy vegetables like broccoli, carrots or potatoes. Or give some real depth to your stews or soups.

Launched in 1979 by the Parson family, now owned and run by the Ashiru family, Womersley Fruit & Herb Vinegars continues to be a family business producing and distributing multi award winning premium, delicious Vinegars, Dressings and Jams made from quality natural ingredients, bursting with real fruits and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. We aim to inspire and help you generate lots of creativity in the kitchen.

All our vinegars and jams are made by hand in a BRC and Salsa accredited kitchen in England, using only natural ingredients.

Our vinegars are made using 5% white or alcoholic vinegar, mixed with fruits and herbs, and reduced British sugar to solidify the fruit and spice flavours. We use a white vinegar base which is a relatively mild vinegar and an excellent base for allowing the fruits and herbs we infuse to really shine. We have also spent many years balancing the proportions, to get the best results.
