The history of grape condiment production takes us back 2500 years in the region of the near east. There they were introduced to the Greeks and then the Romans who appreciated them and introduced them in their dietary habits and daily life. There are numerous references for their use in ancient Greece from the Oxymelon and Melas Zomos to the remedies of Hippocrates and the recipes of Deipnosophistae. The Aceto Botanico Adriani is produced from selected white grapes from Drama. Their juice will produce concentrated must and wine vinegar which will be combined and begin ageing.
Aceto Botanico Brown Seal ages in 225lt oak barrels for four years. Apart from helping in condensing it, barrel ageing makes the bouquet more complex. Ideal in salads, on its own, or as part of a dressing, its delicate aromas will meet the needs of your culinary creations.
