New York Agriculture & Markets Law
Sec. § 209
Packages Containing Vinegar to Be Branded


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.
