Wild Dispensary Fire Cider


Wild Dispensary Fire Cider is a spicy, pungent, immune boosting, apple cider vinegar-based tonic. It has kick! 

Fire Cider is inspired by Rosemary Gladstar’s 1970s recipe which she adapted from an old European gypsy formula. To add an Aotearoa/New Zealand signature the Fire Cider recipe has been infused with wild-crafted New Zealand medicinal herbs. Fire Cider is a powerful, enlivening tonic which can be used to help promote healthy gut bacteria - a natural probiotic. 

What makes Fire Cider so effective?
Made with raw, unpasteurised, undiluted organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) with the ‘mother’ from Nelson, NZ,  made from sun ripened organic apples.

  • Horseradish is the star of the tonic, traditionally used for its healing properties 
  • Cayenne pepper adds heat and supports healthy metabolism 
  • Ginger is used to aid a healthy digestion and provide warmth 
  • Tumeric, garlic, onion, thyme, rosemary, oregano, parsley and bay leaves are all traditionally used as antioxidants 
  • Usnea is traditionally used to support healthy respiratory and lung function 
  • Kawakawa is traditionally used by Māori to support the body when under stress


Adults and children: Dilute 5ml (child) or up to 10 ml (adult) with water.
For the brave, take neat.
If unwell increase to 5 ml – 10 ml every 3-4 hours.


  • Refrigerate after opening. 
  • I'm natural, so shake well before use.

Daily tonic Review by
  • star

Oh my goodness this is just a fantastic cider! I have it in my water throughout the day and it is THE BEST cider to use as a dressing on salads. It is full of flavour and I cannot think of a better way to have a daily tonic to keep my body alkalised, boost my immunity, and support my gut health. Highly recommended.

Yum! Favourite vinegar Review by

This vinegar is delicious! I love the cayenne and horopito added to it for extra power. I take some after each meal and feel great. Can't wait to try the elderberry vinegar.

WOW! Review by
  • star

I love this product!
Packed with all the goodness of many herbs and spices combined with healthy apple cider vinegar - this little gem really has oomph. It feels like a healthy shot. I take it just before a main meal and it helps my digestion. I'm sure it will help to keep the bugs away too. Great tonic that I will certainly keep on using every day.

This is a fantastic product - tasted delicious in a bit of warm water first thing in the morning or added to a salad dressing - not too spicy
