Sarson’s history began in 1794 when they first started making vinegar in Craven Street, London. Today, they make six million litres of Sarson’s vinegar every year – that’s 15 million bottles! Brewed from British malt, using Wood wool from larch timber grown by the Leighton Estate in Wales and craft brewed in Siberian pine vats. The process takes seven days to create a rich and round taste and it has been done in the same way for over 200 years using quality British ingredients.

Great British Wood wool Ltd was founded in September 2018 when we recognised the potential to develop a new business from the foundations of a discontinued local manufacturing facility. Based in the heart of Mid Wales we have an abundance of local, well-managed woodlands from which to source our timber.

With the world focusing on climate change and its impact on the environment, as a natural product, we believe our wood wool offers a sustainable alternative to plastic packaging alongside its many other uses.
