  • Acetoria Raspberry Vinegar


Acetoria (Acetum Manufaktur) Raspberry Vinegar

250mlAlto Adige, Italy

And then there is this Raspberry Vinegar. Not quite the same; a bit like the temperature, it's about 103 degrees away from other vinegars in personality. Like the friends we keep, variation is the key to a happy heart. And this Acetoria Raspberry Vinegar is just that. Where the tomato is sharp, tart and very thin in viscosity, the raspberry is very round; about as smooth as a vinegar can be, and feels quite full figured to the heart.   It might do well to add this to a cherry pie or another dish of summer. And don't be timid. Think about adding it to sparkling water or a mixed drink. Not only does fruit vinegar inspire your taste buds, it inspires your thoughts of what could be. If not on your radar yesterday, these two standouts should be added to your wish list and, ultimately, your pantry! Acetoria fruit vinegars are some of our all-time favorites! The quality and the uniqueness that they have been able to extract from plants is extra-ordinary! Taking a plant and creating fruit vinegar from it is a scientific process and an art project all rolled into one. It's worth it though as you can definitely taste the difference in an awesome vinegar that shares the hand of the artist involved (think Katz Gravenstein apple cider vinegar) and when the fruit essence is expertly extracted into a wonderful ingredient.  About Acetoria Essigmanufaktur Joseph Reiterer and his colleague Robert Bauer have a small "fattoria" on Joseph's farm near the town of Meltina in the province of Bolzano - Joseph is an acclaimed sparkling wine maker in the Alto Adige while Robert is considered the most skilled Master vinegar maker in all of Germany. This mountainous area of Italy's Alto Adige was a province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and German sounding names are quite common throughout the region. Joseph is well known for his craftsmanship and his respect for agricultural output of a given "territory." Acetoria fruit vinegars are made with the utmost attention to detail from the sugar and acid levels of fruit that are pressed, fermented and then acidified to the quality of the wine used to make their wine vinegars.  Vinegar "mothers" are carefully chosen, the temperature and humidity of the process are controlled and just the right type of wood is used for the appropriate aging period. The results are fruit vinegars with rich, deep and complex flavors, to be savored in their own right. More than just acids for your favorite salads, they are liquids that whole meals can be built around.
