Very Cherry ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic
Our Very Cherry ‘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, game, goose & duck.
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 Very Cherry ‘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.
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: marinate meat for a few hours before cooking as usual and you’ll have a dish sure to become a household favourite.
Try a drizzle on thick greek yoghurt on pancakes, muesli or bircher in the morning for a cherry 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.
