Vom Fass

62–68 Low Petergate York YO1 7HZ

The name Vom Fass literally means ‘from the cask’, but it’s not until you step inside this shop that you realise what it sells – namely, oils, spirits and vinegar. The idea is that you choose a bottle, whatever size and shape you fancy, and fill it with the liquid of your choice, whether that be apple-flavoured vodka, cassis vinegar or the lovely gold cuvée with edible bits of gold. Once you’ve finished drinking, sluicing, sloshing or pouring, go back to the shop for a refill.
