Blackberry & Rosemary 7 Year Aged Balsamic Vinegar is absolutely stunning & bursting with flavour; it’s glossy, thick & sweet with no bitterness. Made the traditional way & aged in barrels for around 7 years, the base balsamic vinegar has incredible depth of flavour that is hard to describe. This isn’t a reduction – this is a top-of-the-range, authentic aged balsamic from Modena, home of the World’s finest balsamic vinegar's. The only thing making it sweeter than many others is the passing of time.
This is unlike any ‘supermarket balsamic’ (in fact, look at the ingredients in the cheap ones & you might be surprised!), neither is it in the same class as the cheap, sugary vinegar's that are made with 40-50% sugar. Instead, this is an incredible partner to anything and you’ll only need a few drops to give a real richness to anything. The lightest drizzle on anything will give you an incredible boost.
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.
It has a wonderfully fruity tang balanced perfectly with a subtle herb back note. It works brilliantly with your favourite oil to make the most perfect dressing, but it’s so rich and complex we suggest you try it first without oil for a pure, clean taste.
It’s the perfect partner to goat’s cheese salad, roast vegetables or tomatoes. Add a few drops to a gravy or just for an extra special sauce or make a marinade by adding a dash to oil, crushed garlic, thyme and whatever else you fancy.
As a finalist in the Carlsberg Northamptonshire Food Awards 2012/3, this is one of our top sellers & a must for anyone serious about flavour.
