    Great and City Super have it. Look in the Japanese foods section, its a smaller bottle with a white label and a read apple on it.

    If still looking, try Prizemart (click for store locations)... where, once in a moon, I get large 946ml bottles - Heinz.

    Also good though a lot pricier (circa HK$50+) is the Japanese brand Mizkan cider vinegar (500ml) available from Jusco stores - note: it's labelled "Apple Flavored Distilled Vinegar".

    Apple-flavoured distilled vinegar is quite different from (fermented) Cider Vinegar though.

    OP - Since you've put this under 'Health & Medical', later you may buy more, in which case PrizeMart sells the large bottles for HK$24 (Wellcome's is usually half the size, for $16.90).

    Right you are (as 'most always ).

    Left out this: I meant that for nutritional health purposes (towards healthy bones, to ease/prevent heartburn, so on) generally, vinegar - even this apple-flavoured distilled type - is also good.

    Cider vinegar's better, though (and what was first asked for, so excuse my digression).

    For those a mite curious... just dug out Dr Marilyn Glenville's 'Osteoporosis' ref. on this:

    Interesting research has looked at the effects of vinegar in the diet. Although acidic, vinegar can, in fact increase calcium absorption from food. This ties in with the fact that adequate stomach acid is needed to absorb calcium […] The cider variety is the most beneficial vinegar in that it helps to balance potassium and so has an alkalizing effect on the body and is therefore good for your bone health. This is one of those paradoxes where a food that starts off acidic actually ends up alkaline when digested…
