What is Balsamic Vinegar / Where it Comes From:
Quality: Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is of Modena, Italy. Our BV is aged up to 18 years in wooden casks, with no artificial coloring, high fructose corn syrup, caramel coloring or any other thickening agents. The result is a high quality, flavorful, complex vinegar. Keep in mind, the appearance may not be a dark as other bv’s, as many commercial bv’s are using artificial ingredients to give it the look of a real, high quality balsamic vinegar. It is extremely common for commercial bv’s to contain added caramel color, as well as thickening and sweeting agents, which ours do not.
Region: All of our balsamic vinegar comes from Modena, Italy.
Storage: Balsamic Vinegar is susceptible to heat, light, and oxygen. It is imperative for balsamic vinegar to be stored in dark bottles away from heat and light. They do not need to be refrigerated. Don’t set bottles next to stoves. The best place to keep them is in a cupboard away from any heat or light sources.
Shelf Life: While balsamic vinegar is not as sensitive to deterioration, it is best to be consumed within 6 months as well. The reason being, flavor is a key component to good balsamic. As it sits in a bottle, it may become more “vinegary” and acidic or appear less appetizing.
Variety of flavors: We carry over 30 types of infused balsamic vinegars, most of which are made with our traditional bv. These are natural fruit or plant-based infusions which give our customers a plethora of applications.
