Blackberry & Rosemary ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic

£ 6.00

Our Blackberry & Rosemary ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar is perfect for autumn nights, drizzling over goat’s cheese salads, game, or desserts. It works beautifully with rich meats like venison, lamb, goose & duck too.

One key difference with this compared with other cheaper imitations is that we don’t use watery, thin balsamic vinegar; these are thick enough to use as a glaze but without the artificial sweeteners & thickeners.

We also don’t add a grain of sugar, caramel (E150) or sweetener anywhere in the process – all the sweetness comes from the passing of time & from the fruit itself. This is unlike any ‘supermarket balsamic’ or cheap, watery vinegars made with 40-50% sugar. This also means it’s ‘free’ on all the slimming plans we know of!

Neither do we do ‘reductions’ – cheaper vinegars that have been boiled to reduce them & make them thicker.

Instead, our Blackberry & Rosemary ‘Special Reserve’ is a stunning, authentic aged balsamic from Modena, home of the World’s finest balsamic vinegars, aged for years in barrels until just the right balance of sweetness is attained & then infused with fruit to give the perfect explosion of flavours.

Use it as your ‘go-to’ balsamic: whenever you need to dress a salad, dip chunks of crusty bread into something, drizzle on meats or add a dash to sauces, this is a beautiful aged classic balsamic with a twist to bring it right up to date with today’s tastes. In fact, we drizzle this on lamb instead of mint sauce now.

As well as a bread-dipper, it’s the perfect partner to roast vegetables or tomatoes & excels when a few drops are drizzled over duck, lamb, venison or any game. Add a few drops to a stir fry, gravy or jus for an extra special sauce or make a marinade by adding a dash to oil, crushed garlic, thyme and whatever else you fancy.

Try a drizzle on thick greek yoghurt on pancakes, muesli or bircher in the morning for a fruity kick. Made with a Goat’s cheese salad in mind, it works just as well as an accompaniment on a cheese board, even with harder cheeses like parmesan or pecorino. It’s also fab on sautéed greens & veg.

This is an incredible partner to anything and you’ll only need a few drops to give a real richness.

As a finalist in the Carlsberg Northamptonshire Food Awards 2012/3, this is a firm favourite with customers & definitely a store-cupboard essential.
