Fallot Whole Grain Mustard - Large - 13.8 oz - Burgundy, France
This is one of our favorite Fallot products - we love it on our hot dogs and brats. The mustard seeds are mixed directly with the wine vinegar, spices and flavorings of each manufacturer's specific recipes. The mixture is rough milled without sieving in order to keep the seed whole. The content in dry matter must be at least 18% of the total weight.
In 1634, out of concern for the quality of is mustard, the city of Dijon imposed the first statues on the mustard-making trade. Even before this date the region was well known for the quality of its mustard. The 18th century discovery of verjuice - juice from grapes harvested in Burgundy - put the finishing touch of quality to this fine product. In the early 1900s it was found that wine vinegar produced a more consistent product than the juice of un-ripe grapes. Adding wine vinegar to the brown mustard seed and grinding the mixture using traditional grindstones - so as not to damage the heat-sensitive paste - helped to earn DIJON MUSTARD a worldwide reputation for quality.
The Fallot Mustard Mill is the last independent Burgundy 'Moutarderie - mustard mill. Fallot has been an independent Burgundian family business since 1840, and is the only one still housed on its original premises, a few steps away from the Hospice of Beaune. Marc Désarménien, the grandson of the man who took over the company, is currently in control of the business, while his father still plays an active role in the company.
Fallot is very proud and protective of the Dijon tradition. The seeds are selected for their quality and are still ground as before using traditional millstones. Now as before, Fallot looks to the mustard-maker's craft to guarantee a quality product, which is why they still use traditional millstones in their process - indeed, they the only Dijon producer that still uses the traditional stone mill method.
