An explosion of flavor made with all natural ingredients, no coloring, no thickeners and no artificial ingredients. Arome bottles a collection of flavor that can step up for your next shrub salad or glaze. Some of our favorites are the 18-year age traditional, Sicilian lemon white balsamic and for espresso balsamic.
Our balsamic is produced using the Solera method, a traditional method which begins by cooking Trebbiano or Lambrusco grapes. With dark balsamic the cooking process begins to caramelize the grape must, while in white balsamic it is cooked to a lesser degree. This grape must is then moved to wooden barrels to start aging and inoculated with wine vinegar. As the aging process progresses the barrels are left open to the air and new liquid is blended with aged as the balsamic ferments.
Our passion is in finding the flavors of the world and bringing them to your kitchen. Visit us at our Hood River shop, nestled in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, only one hour from Portland, Oregon. We have regular demos, and you can sample any of our flavors before you take them home.
