Mad Maiden Shrub



Mad Maiden Shrub

Have you tried a drinking vinegar?  It’s a great digestive tonic, and a great drink mixer, too!

Mad Maiden Shrub is a full-strength drinking vinegar that starts with organic apples from Wisconsin orchards. It makes a refreshing colonial-era drink called a “shrub.”  Shrub should be refrigerated after opening.

We carry two flavors: Honey Ginger, and Cranberry.
