5 YEARS AGED GINKGO VINEGAR
Hanega’s flagship product and also its best selling, this ginkgo vinegar is unlike anything we’ve tasted. Ginkgo from the family orchard is combined with 14 other herbs, fruits, grains and roots and then aged for at least five years. So flavorful and yet incredibly light, it balances herbal notes with a hint of orange, and can be used in delicate crudos or salads, or with stronger-flavored dishes. Co-founder Jenn drinks it daily with sparkling water, and recently used it with perilla oil in a killer crab and cucumber salad.

A fruit full of antioxidants, Hanega grows its own Gingko.
A core Asian medicinal ingredient, lilyturf root is known for its anti-inflammatory and cough suppressing properties, and so is used to treat various lung-related illnesses.
Balloon flower root
Also known as ‘bellflower,’ the root of this plant looks like a smaller version of a ginseng. Long used to treat lung- and throat-related ailments, balloon flower root is also full of antioxidants, making it an all around power herb. It is also a popular choice for a ban-chan (side dish) in Korea, and even used as a core topping in bibimbap (mixed rice) dishes.
A good source of Vitamins A and C, pine needles have long been used in Korean medicine to strengthen the immune system, aid in blood circulation, and promote skin and hair health.
