Black Garlic Dark Balsamic

$18.00$39.00

Our sweet black garlic dark balsamic, reminiscent of Asian cuisine, is perfect for drizzling over stir-fried chicken or pork. This vinegar’s flavours include ample umami, soy, garlic, and a hint of licorice, complementing the cooked grape must. Use it in vinaigrettes, Asian sauces, and marinades, and drizzle over steamed leafy green vegetables to enhance the vinegar’s aroma.  The underlying tannic structure of this balsamic adds complexity and balance to the berries’ acidity and sweetness. The floral diversity is fresh and sharply cleansing, with no residual sweetness.

What is balsamic oil or balsamic vinaigrette & why is balsamic vinegar different?
While many use the terms balsamic vinaigrette and balsamic vinegar interchangeably, it’s essential to understand the distinction between the two. Balsamic vinegar is a rich, dark, and concentrated liquid made from freshly crushed grape juice, which is aged for several years in wooden barrels. Its signature sweet and tangy flavour is a result of this prolonged aging process. On the other hand, balsamic vinaigrette is not a traditional product and is typically a blend of olive oil infused with balsamic vinegar flavours. This blend offers a milder taste, making it suitable for those who prefer a more subdued balsamic essence in their dishes.  Some popular oil & vinegar pairings are listed above.
