I want to make Christmas gifts of distilled vinegar with purple basil from my garden. Can I keep the infusion going for 3 and a half months before straining it, and then repackaging it in glass bottles with a cork stopper? Is it alright that my gallon stock bottle is plastic? I did not boil the distilled vinegar before adding the purple basil, it is being stored in a dark cupboard, and I am shaking the stock bottle everyday.
