OUR VINEGAR IN GASTRONOMY

The aromatic concentration that the Sherry Vinegar acquires through the system of “Criaderas & Solera”, reflected in its dark mahogany colour, makes “CAPIRETE” Sherry Vinegar a peerless condiment in world gastronomy. Only a few drops of this vinegar are sufficient to turn any dish into a culinary fiesta. Its sharp, yet harmonious bouquet transports us to the magic world of the cellars; sunlight filtering through esparto blinds dimly illuminating the oaken butts. On the palate, the vinegar’s acid notes contrast with the surprising roundness that it has acquired during years of ageing.

If producing our Sherry Vinegar is an art, making the most of it also requires us to bear its characteristics in mind. Its possibilities are boundless, as the word’s most prestigious chefs have discovered. However, its aromatic potency and extraordinary degree of concentration advise that care be taken when using it. In salads, in seasoning all types of dishes, in stews and sauces, a few drops of “CAPIRETE” Sherry Vinegar add a touch of magic, transforming and giving character to the most varied recipes. It is essential in vinaigrettes, pickles and marinades; cold sauces, such as mayonnaise or mustard, on hot sauces.

Below are some recipes that show the great versatility of Sherry Vinegar as the basis of all types of dishes.
