Chocolate & Vanilla 'Special Reserve' Aged Balsamic

Chocolate & Vanilla Aged Balsamic

Chocolate works brilliantly with goat’s cheese, in fact any strong, salty cheese – try a few slivers of 70%+ chocolate on your cheeseboard next time and see what we mean. A nice glass of port marries these two flavours together beautifully. That’s what gave us the inspiration for our Chocolate & Vanilla 'Special Reserve' aged balsamic.

Ours is thicker and sweeter because it’s a genuine aged, balsamic, not because it’s packed with sugar and/or pectin like some others. It’s concentrated and rich that you only need a few drops for massive flavour. This is NOT a cheap reduction. 

Use it as a dressing for a robust salad – something like goat’s cheese or stilton works well – or even a robust game dish like pigeon or venison. Just a few drops on some sliced, rare-roasted venison will boost the flavour. Following the Mexican principle of chocolate in their stews, a dash of our balsamic in a stew, chilli or casserole gives a really intense flavour and makes red meat taste meatier. It’s not a chocolate sauce though – it’s a fine balance of bitter chocolate, the heady aroma and sweetness of vanilla and the tangy, yet sweet, aged balsamic.

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 pigeon or game for a few hours before cooking as usual and you’ll have a dish sure to become a household favourite.

Of course, this is also great with a cheese board too – add a little to a ramekin an hour or so before you serve and leave it at room temperature: it’s already reduced so it won’t take long for it to reduce even further and become a rich, sticky, thick glaze – perfect to dip cheese into!

Shelf life: 3 years

Available to buy in a 2 pack. If you prefer you can select one of our other balsamics for the 2nd bottle.

Not worth the money. Pots are very small and description is very misleading. Each pot would not give you more than one meal. So tiny feel very ripped off
