Another terrific and unique product from Kirsten's Farm Kitchen at West Craigie. This wonderful Blackcurrant Vinegar is very different from any of our other vinegars, due to its intensly rich and sweet flavour.
How is it best used?
It can be used to dress salads on its own, but is especially good when mixed with a strong olive oil, such as our single estate Villa Montalbano Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Tuscany, to make up a dressing. Its richness also makes it ideally suited to enhance sauces and gravies. Like our other fruit vinegars, it can also be used as a cordial. One third fruit vinegar, two thirds sparkling mineral water and a little ice is all you will need to keep the stress of hot summer day at bay. If you are passionate about blackcurrants, why not also try our Blackcurrant Gin Liqueur 20% from Worcestershire?
How is this made?
The Sinclair family have farmed West Craigie Farm on the Dalmeny Estate, since the mid 1960's. Having started growing fruit on the farm in 1980 by 1985 Kirsten started to make jams, chutneys and vinegars with the fruit they grew. Made using only the home-grown fruit, sugar and malt vinegar this has none of the preservatives of commercially bottled products. Instead it relies solely on the preservative qualities of the sugar and vinegar to maintain the quality of this product. This allows the finished product to taste simply, and sublimely, of fruit.
