Created from an ancient recipe, Acropolis Organics Mousto Balsamic Vinegar is made from Romeiki grapes to deliver a taste as rich and dynamic as Crete’s history and culture. Unlike most modern balsamic to which cane sugar is added, Mousto Balsamic is enhanced with Petimezi - a natural, ancient grape molasses, which gives this vinegar a full fruity sweetness. It’s then aged in oak barrels for six years to further enrich its flavour. Mousto Balsamic Vinegar uses Biodynamic Agriculture - a new ecological farming system, (old school for us), using no pesticides, chemicals, or industrial farming. This product is 100% natural, and is free from preservatives, additives and dyes.
Ingredients: 100% Certified organic balsamic vinegar.
The true origins of the olive tree are revealed in Greek mythology. Back in 800 BC, Athena and Poseidon competed against each other to decide who would become the ruling God of what is now known as Athens. They decided to present the people of the city with one gift each and let them choose whose they liked best. First, Poseidon struck a stone with his trident giving the people salt water. Athena countered by striking her spear on the holy rock of the Acropolis, giving the people their first olive tree. Pleased with the usefulness of her offering and her obvious generosity, the citizens chose the olive tree and renamed their city Athens in her honour. While this story is myth, its spirit lives on in the Acropolis Organics name and legendary olive oil. For generations, the Tsiriotakis family has carried on the legacy of their ancestors, producing some of the purest, most delicious olive oil in the world. From tending fields and hand-picking olives, to first-cold-pressing the crop and packaging their bottles: every step of olive oil production is handled with meticulous attention to detail. Harvested by the Tsiriotakis family on the island of Crete, Acropolis Organics provides hand-picked, first-cold-pressed, unfiltered olive oil that is simply divine. While commercial manufacturers often "blend" olive oils, they grow and press theirs without the use of pesticides or chemicals using a single variety of koroneiki olives. These olives are renowned for their superior oil and are never mixed. The result is pure, simple and divine.
