John and Mary Stratton produce their award winning vinegars, oils, preserves, rubs and flavoured sugars from their home in Eastbourne. They start sourcing their products right there -  from their garden, from friends and neighbours, and from nearby growers in Sussex and Kent. That's how they ensure they are choosing only the finest fruits and flowers and that they know exactly where each has been grown.

stratta products include:

  • Sweet fruit and flower vinegars
  • Balsamic fruit vinegars
  • Savoury vinegars
  • Salt preserved lemons
  • Spiced oranges and pears
  • Spiced fruit sauces
  • Pickled garlic
  • Herb and lavender salt rubs

Chef Andrew Kojima has recently used stratta's elderberry vinegar to create a dish for Her Majesty The Queen, as well as inspiring John and Mary to create shiso vinegar in purple and green varieties using this fabulous Japanese herb.
