Ultimate Pure Aged Balsamic Collection
Our Ultimate Aged Balsamic Collection is a real treat for the most discerning foodie. Comprising three of our top-of-the-range pure balsamic vinegars, this is a great way to appreciate the difference between some truly stunning products.
We use our GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNING Gran Riserva ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar as the foundation for this set. This is what the judges had to say about this balsamic:
- Glossy, with good consistency; the ageing has done its work
- Real molasses notes; complex sweetness & lovely balance of acidity
- A dark & rich balsamic with good consistency & beautiful sheen
The key differences between our stunning, authentic aged balsamic vinegars compared with cheaper imitations are:
- WE DON’T use watery, thin balsamic vinegar; ours are thick enough to use as a glaze but with NO artificial sweeteners or thickeners.
- WE DON’T do ‘reductions’ – cheaper vinegars that have been boiled to reduce them (sometimes even with sugar) & make them thicker.
- WE DON’T add a grain of sugar, caramel (E150) or sweeteners 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.
Each box set contains:
Gran Riserva ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar: already an award winner, this is the ‘gold standard’ of balsamic vinegars and the one we use as the base for our other infusions. This is a stunning example of an authentic balsamic vinegar: glossy, thick & sweet with no bitterness. 100ml with pourer
Supremo ‘Extra Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar: the next step up from our gorgeous Award Winning Gran Riserva is our Supremo ‘Extra Special Reserve’. Aged for even longer in barrels, it is made from pure concentrated grape must. No wine vinegar, no sugar & never (ever) any caramel or colouring – pure, aged balsamic vinegar from Modena for the discerning palate. 100ml with pourer
Sublime ‘Extra Vintage’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar: made to strict standards, our Sublime ‘Extra Vintage’ is matured in barrels for a minimum of 12 years to achieve perfection. Our richest, thickest & more intense experience, use by the drop to create complex layers of incredible flavour, boosting meats & game dishes, ice cream, desserts, salads, fruits & cheese. 100ml with pourer
These are the finest balsamic vinegars we do & each will take you through a journey to fully appreciate truly stunning balsamic vinegars, from the ‘gold standard’ Gran Riserva through to the utterly Sublime 12-year aged & the Supremo that sits in between them.
