Chinkiang Vinegar (Chinese: 镇江香醋; pinyin: Zhènjiāng xiāngcù) is a major type of black rice vinegar originating from the city of Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province, China.

It has five notable properties and characteristics: color, fragrance, acid, alcohol, and density. It is made by adding acetic acid and bacteria to glutinous rice, its main ingredient. It then undergoes three steps: alcohol fermentation, acetic fermentation and vinegar rinsing.[1]
