I believe it's distilled.

It is my understanding, too.

I have a lot of different vinegars but I've never heard of it or recall seeing it even in specialty stores.

My first thought was that it might be concentrated vinegar ... But that seems like a lot of work.

I hate recipes that so casually call for unheard of ingredients.

It looks like it's concentrated white vinegar: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DOOBK76/

ETA: Didn't read all the responses first, sorry

White distilled vinegar sold in regular stores is diluted to 5% acetic acid. When it's made, the concentration is much higher. It's not commonly sold at the higher concentrations here.

Regular vinegar starts as a fermented juice or liquid of some kind - red wine, apple cider, sake, beer, etc. Then acetic acid bacteria (acetobacter) is introduced, which converts the alcohol to acetic acid.

Distilled white vinegar is made somewhat different. What they do is dilute distilled alcohol with water and then add the bacteria culture. Unlike other vinegars, this type doesn't really begin its life as fruit.

I read that it can be poisonous ... In large quantities I assume ... So be careful!!

Because it's a highly concentrated acid, you don't need much for it to be dangerous. I'm a little surprised someone recommends it for cooking.
