Pomegranate & Fig ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic
Bursting with fresh fruit flavours, our Pomegranate & Fig ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar is absolutely stunning; rich, thick & sweet with no bitterness.
This is a Great Taste Award winner too! The judges at the Great Taste Awards had some lovely things to say about it:
- “A thick balsamic, rich and dark in colour. The pomegranate shines through with an intense lingering flavour from the vinegar. A well balanced sweetness.”
- “Lovely rich colour with a good viscosity. Balance of sweet and sour and would work well with game products”
Already a customer favourite, we’re so pleased it’s been officially recognised with an award. Have you tried it yet?
The fresh, zingy pomegranate with the added depth of the fig balances beautifully to create a richness not found in cheap copies or sugary fruit vinegars. Add a drizzle to anything gamey, salads – especially goat’s cheese – couscous or quinoa, cheese boards & more. This combination of flavours is a firm favourite with the discerning foodie. We’ve even drizzled it over rocket & added it to a pizza before serving.
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 Pomegranate & Fig ‘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.
Add a shot to a prosecco or make a long drink with soda water – this is a really versatile dressing you will find yourself using regularly. It’s fab on Yorkshire puddings too!
Try a drizzle on thick greek yoghurt on pancakes, muesli or bircher in the morning for a fruity kick. It works on a cheese board too, especially 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.
Balsamic vinegar (80%) [concentrated grape must, wine vinegar], pomegranate (10%), fig (10%). Contains sulfites.
