Melchiori Apple Balsamics Tasting (free)

Our first free tasting of 2014 and we are using a brand new product, Apple Balsamic with Angelo Mazzocchi.

Vinegars are one of the oldest traditional health foods found throughout the world. Naturally fermented vinegars, in simplistic terms, basically start out as fresh fruit juices. They are naturally fermented into an alcohol liquid, where the fermentation process uses up most of the natural sugars turning them into alcohol. Further fermentation turns what is an alcoholic liquid into a more acidic liquid without alcohol - vinegar. Natural vinegars have health properties by nature of the fact that they are vinegars, but they also retain the health characteristics of the fruit they were fermented from - without the sugar.

This artisan balsamic vinegar is prepared with old world methods in Italy. No sulphites are added making a naturally pure, authentic, sourly sweet taste. (Please note, this vinegar is not sulfite-free since sulfites are naturally present in grape products.) A special micro filtration process reduces yeast by 100 percent. Made from Trebbiano and Lambrusco grape must, this vinegar is produced in Modena Italy by a family that has been producing balsamic vinegar for hundreds of years.

Mr Trotter was born from the shared passion of three pork scratching aficionados – Tom Parker Mr Trotter'sBowles, Matthew Fort and Rupert Ponsonby – and innovative pork scratching producer, Graham Jebb from RayGray Snacks.

Over a few pints in 2009 Tom and Matthew started ruminating about the possibility of creating a superior scratching – one that was made more of pork than salt and fat, that used British pigs rather than Danish pigs, and that didn't fizz with curious seasonings.

It looks better. It crunches better. It tastes better. It's made from prime British pork skin from the finest British pigs. It's cooked in small batches by hand and it's seasoned without a trace of MSG.
