    So iv been making sauces from recipes off this site and most call for white vinegar, as I live in the UK I cant find a vinegar simply called 'white'. So i substituted distilled malt vinegar instead but this always has my sauces ending up just tasting like vinegar! Iv googled white vinegar in the UK and just get results for white wine vinegar, so if anyone knows of a suitable substitute or where i can buy just white vinegar i would really appreciate it
    Thanks, Chris

    White vinegar may be simply be labeled "distilled vinegar" or even just "vinegar." has white vinegar:

    White wine vinegar would be a better substitute than malt vinegar.

    Can you get a plain (unseasoned) rice vinegar? I often use that when a recipe calls for white vinegar, simply because I tend to have it around a lot, and the white vinegar is in a huge bottle that's clumsy to use.

    Hi Chris,
    I added a link to your post in our Great Britain and Ireland forum, I hope that helps get a reply from someone living there that would have better knowledge of what is available in the markets.

    Distilled white vinegar is made from sun ripened grain, diluted with water to a uniform pickling and table strength of 5% (50 grains) acidity. It is sometimes called "virgin vinegar," or "household vinegar".

    White wine vinegar is of course made from grapes and is wonderful on salads.

    Rice vinegar is also a little less acidic (4.2%) than distilled white vinegar is (5%).

    Sainsburys carry Sarsons Distilled white vinegar. Its probably a bit rough, and white wine vinegar is softer. IYKWIM
