Minus 8 Vinegar
Everything about Minus 8 is kept secret. It is produced near Niagara Falls, however the exact location is not published. Its makers produce Minus 8 the same way ice wine is made. Grapes are left on the vine past the typical harvest season and freeze at the onset of winter. The frozen grapes are then harvested by hand once temperatures cool down below -8 degrees Celsius, then immediately pressed to extract their concentrated juice. A blend of juices from various grape varietals is made into wine, then aged in oak barrels using the Solera system to create Minus 8 vinegar. Less than 5,000 bottles of this sweet vinegar are made each year, and we are offering it to you in the exclusive chef's 200 ML (6.76 FL OZ) bottle.
Loved by Jean-Georges Vongerichten (Jean-Georges Restaurant in New York), David Daniels (The Federalist in Boston), Philippe Rispoli (Aureole in Las Vegas), and numerous other top chefs, Minus 8 can be drizzled over entrees, incorporated into a marinade, or even sipped as a digestive. It is also perfect as an ingredient in dressings, sauces, or reductions. Enjoy it with meats, fish, duck, chicken, and cheeses.
