Did you even know South Dakota even had a vinegar museum?
I personally did not, until I had the opportunity to visit it.
Did you know it was located in Roslyn, SD?
I love surprises!
Recently on a webinar I attended, Lawrence Digg, the Vinegar Man was speaker. It was great to hear him because it was not too long ago I had put together a video (below & on Facebook), I had put together on my first time visit. I still am amazed when our world, within rural, opens up and we see new and different elements that we never knew before.
Lawrence Digg came from San Francisco and relocated to Roslyn. In a nutshell, he was inquiring and learning more about vinegar when he happened across the community and museum. One thing led to another and Lawrence now calls Roslyn home. It's a great story. I'm sure there are many like it out there.
I happened to find it thanks to an Economic Development group of Directors at a conference in Webster, SD. We were offered a tour of the area including Roslyn. On their main street sat this amazing little historical brick building that housed the museum. The video I'm including here was from that visit. Those on this tour, otherwise known as Vinegar Lovers, flocked to the tasting table. They have volunteers available to be your guide around the various tastes, types and history of the vinegar. Lawrence Digg, has been called the Vinegar Man and wants to make Roslyn the Vinegar Capitol of the World. I would say he's certainly on the right track as more and more learn about it.
Check out the video to hear more on the tasting and the information shared. Enjoy, then grab your car keys and take a weekend trip to Roslyn. Set up an appointment first however as it's by appointment now during Covid-19.
