This is a very interesting place to visit especially if you have never seen how vinegar is made. Ingredients are shown and they walk you through the process. The greatest challenge is to walk through the vinegar storage room on the second floor. I came out crying and tearing. I was thinking they would need an SCBA to rescue anyone who collapse inside. Anyway it is a great place to visit.

We went to visit the factory and was given a free tour on how vinegar was made. They have vintage vinegar that is more than 50 years old. They have vinegars from 5 to 30 years for sale. Amazing just to smell them. They can be taken for health reasons.

The visit to the Vinegar Garden was on the tour itinerary. When I saw it, I didn't feel so keen but it was worth a visit. There is a lot of information about the making of vinegar and we went through rooms to see the product in various stages. In one area the vinegar smell was quite strong and we were assured it was able to clear nasal passages. The shop is extensive and there are many kinds of vinegar of different ages. I recommend buying vinegar there. I found the taste quite good. There is a very thick vinegar and you mix a little with water and drink it. I'm told this is good for health. Some products we use daily and take for granted and it is worth seeing just what hard work goes into making a product like vinegar. The Shanxi vinegar is renowned.

Not everyone has a vinegar museum on their bucket list. But this place is very interesting. They have some archaeological material and some reliable records of how it ran 1,500 years ago. Their handworked vinegar making process today is fun to see.
