Every manufacturer or distributor of vinegar, as defined in section two hundred and seven of this chapter, shall plainly brand each cask, barrel or other container of such
vinegar with his name and place of business, the kind of vinegar contained therein,
in the terms defined in such section two hundred and seven, and the substance or substances from which it was made.
No person shall mark or brand as or for cider vinegar, or apple cider vinegar, or
dried apple vinegar, any package containing that which is not cider vinegar, or apple
cider vinegar, or dried apple vinegar, as defined in such section two hundred and seven.
Every person who sells any vinegar other than cider vinegar or apple cider vinegar
not made from whole apples, or dried apple vinegar not made from dried whole apples
or from dried chopped apples, except it be delivered to the purchaser in the unbroken
branded package of the manufacturer or distributor, shall plainly and conspicuously
mark or brand the receptacle or container in which such vinegar is delivered to the
purchaser, whether such receptacle or container be furnished by the seller or purchaser,
with a label showing the kind of vinegar, in the terms defined in such section two hundred and seven, so delivered and the substance or substances from which it was made.
Nothing herein shall be deemed to prohibit the sale of cider vinegar stock, provided
it be sold as and for such and in compliance with the provisions of this article as
to marking or branding. The term “cider vinegar stock” when used herein, shall be construed to mean acetified
apple juice of less acidity than that required for vinegar which contains sufficient
alcohol to develop the acidity required in vinegar.
The phrase “substance or substances from which it was made,” when used in this section,
shall, when applied to “cider vinegar” or “apple cider vinegar” not made from whole
apples, be construed to mean the parts of the apples, such as skins and cores, from
which the vinegar was made, and shall, when applied to “dried apple vinegar” not made
from dried whole apples or dried chopped apples, be construed to mean the parts of
the dried apples, such as skins, cores or pomace, from which the vinegar was made.
