Mousto Balsamic Vinegar
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, our Mousto Balsamic is enhanced with Petimezi – a natural, ancient grape molasses, which gives our vinegar a full fruity sweetness. It’s then aged in oak barrels for six years to further enrich its flavor.
The refined chef’s choice ingredient, Mousto Balsamic will transform your salads, vegetables, meats and seafood dishes into culinary works of art.
Our Mousto has been certified organic. We do not use pesticides or chemicals. 100% natural, this product is free from preservatives, additives and dyes, thus, each batch is slightly different and variations in consistency may occur.
No refrigeration required.
Honey Balsamic Vinegar
If you’re sweet on the rich flavour honey brings to the table—and your dressings then this is the start of a beautiful relationship!
The earthy acidity of vinegar is lovingly tempered by pure Cretan honey to create a match that will stand the test of time and inspire your culinary imagination!
Best for roasting chicken, sautéing vegetables & grilling salmon.
EVOO with Balsamic Vinegar
Balsamic and olive oil seem like a match made for Italy but our Greek spin—which includes an organic blend of our extra virgin olive oil and the decidedly earthier flavour of balsamic vinegar—might just make you dance in circles with delight!
Whether it’s the base for a Mediterranean marinade, a dip for your favourite fresh bread or a finishing touch on a salad, the decadent taste of this pair is fit for Greek and Roman gods alike.
Best for drizzling on garden salads or fries, roasting lamb & grilling steak.
Polyphenol Antioxidants – The amount of polyphenol antioxidants vary with each crop. Our olive oil has a polyphenol count of more than 410 mg/kg.
