Coffee & Vanilla ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic

£ 6.75 £ 6.00

Our Coffee & Vanilla ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar is highly unusual & a great way to experiment with unique flavour combinations.

Coffee has many aroma properties including those of blackberry, coriander, clove, vanilla & chocolate. It also does something wonderful to red meat dishes, accentuating the flavours further & giving it a rich intensity. The vanilla gives a subtle sweetness, with a rich aroma & extra depth of flavour.

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. A few drops on any salad, meats, fruits, cheeses & much more completes any dish.

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 Coffee & Vanilla ‘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 to give a depth of flavour both surprises & delights.

Use it to boost flavour in stews, casseroles and chillies. 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: marinate pigeon or game for a few hours before cooking as usual & you’ll have a dish sure to become a favourite.

Try a few drops on ice cream too: the proteins in the dairy bind to the tannin in the coffee to mellow the taste somewhat & provide an interesting flavour combination. Add some crushed meringue for a complimentary chewy crunch!

Balsamic vinegar (98%) (concentrated grape must, wine vinegar) infused with coffee (1%) & vanilla (1%). Contains sulphites.
