The balsamic vinegar of Ancient Greeks. Based on the original Ancient Greek recipe from the Minoan period in Crete, Oxymelo is made of barrel aged vinegar and the famous Cretan thyme honey.
It is combined harmonically with Modern Greek cuisine to give a special and unique character to salads and cooked dishes.
It is made of 100% natural ingredients, without any preservatives or additives, and is gluten-free.
The production of vinegar is based on the conversion of alcohol into acetic acid. Historically, vinegar is the oldest and most popular flavouring ingredient used in gastronomy. It probably appeared together with the use of wine around 6000 BC, as it is a natural by-product of alcoholic fermentation. Vinegar was widely used in cooking by the Greeks, who were actually the first to detect differences in quality among various types of vinegar, depending on their place of origin. On the other hand, vinegar has been strongly related to our health for a long time, thanks to its natural disinfectant and antibacterial properties.
