Chocolate & Vanilla 'Special Reserve' Aged Balsamic

Chocolate & Vanilla Aged Balsamic
  • Save 11%

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.

This is the best truffle oil I have tasted. Rather than some, which are 'in your face' earth and fungus, this product extracts the subtle beauty of the flavour. Delicious!
