Lindera Farms Vinegar
Lindera Farms takes locally and sustainably sourced agricultural products of pristine quality, and ferment them into wines which they then age into vinegar. This makes for a robust, versatile vinegar with chefs, bartenders, home cooks, and health conscious individuals in mind.
The ingredients from Lindera Farms are raised in a non-interventionist process, they don’t introduce anything to the growing process, no chemicals and no fertilizers. Basically, they’re subject to the whims of the environment completely; think Darwinian farming. The positives of this practice are that you get these stronger, more resilient, more flavorful fruits, herbs, and flowers with no carbon footprint or residual impact to the environment. The result? Mind-blowing.
Flavor Profile: Medium acidity, savory.
Tasting Notes: Super savory – notes of garlic, ramp, leek, onion, pickled jalapeño, masa (cornmeal), sour cream.
Kitchen Pairings: This is a vastly complex, medium acidity vinegar with garlicky notes, so think of it as a substitute anywhere you might use lemon and garlic in a dish.
Bar Pairings: Makes a good addition to Bloody Mary’s, Martini’s, Gibsons, and more savory cocktails.
Flavor Profile: Medium acidity, medium-low sweetness
Tasting Notes: Fruity and oaky, with a soft, red-wine quality to it.
Kitchen Pairings: Vinaigrettes, Health/Probiotic consumption, and anywhere you would use a traditional red wine vinegar
Bar Pairings: Very good pairing to Scotch, Whiskey, and Bourbon. Works well in ginger ale and sparkling water for non-alcoholic beverages.
Cherry Blossom Vinegar (Currently out of stock)
Flavor Profile: Medium-high acidity, low sweetness
Tasting Notes: Think cherry pie; floral, yeasty, earthy and jammy with a good blend between fresh cherry flavor and preserved. The Cherry Blossom vinegar offers a flavorful swap for a more traditional rosé vinegar.
Kitchen Pairings: Great substitute for a traditional red or rosé wine vinegar; salad dressings, marinades and mignonettes benefit especially from using it.
Bar Pairings: Very good pairing to Gin, Vodka, and floral cordials such as St. Germaine. Similar acidity to a lemon; so use proportionally.
