In the 1980s, in Bavaria, Germany, Johannes Kiderlen decided to install taps on the vats of his premium sherry and invite customers for a taste directly from them. The sherry ran out quickly and Johannes decided to adopt the method at his family's vinegar factory as well. This is how the international Vom Fass chain, which is now boasts about 150 branches across four continents, came into being. The chain's shops offer a range of vinegars, oils and alcohols that are collected meticulously from many countries across the globe, paying attention to the use of only the finest raw materials. All the oils, vinegars, liqueurs and distilled beverages may be tasted on the premises and poured into bottles of the shape and size the customer chooses, all based on the motto that has accompanied Vom Fass worldwide - look, taste, enjoy.
