Is spirit vinegar hala?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org

I bought mayonnaise in London, it has an ingredient spirit vinegar. One of my friends mentioned that spirit vinegar is not halal, like spirit wine?

Is spirit vinegar hala?
Most scholars are of the opinion that just as spirit wine is not Halal, that spirit which is made from other ingredients. But there is a group of scholars which says that the ruling for vinegar spirit or spirit made from any source other than wine is different from the ruling given on wine spirit. Anyway, it’s better to be safe; it’s closer towards taqwa.
