An ancient sweetener called "Petimezi" in Greek, our Organic Grape Molasses is an intense, sweetly aromatic syrup made from concentrated must of organic grapes grown in the Messinia region of Greece, an area famous for its vineyards. Great as a natural alternative sweetener, it can be used in marinades and dressings or stirred into drinks as a cordial.
Grape must is cold-pressed and no heat is used to reduce it to a syrupy consistency preserving the delicate aromas and the winey, fruity flavour of grapes in the molasses produced.
A muliple times GTA winner, our Organic Grape Molasses cemented its gold star in the recent 2020 awards.
Commenting on the molasses, judges have said: 'A delightful winey, quince-fruited aroma. Gently viscosity and shimmery in the glass. The flavour is very sweet with lovely muscatel grape characteristics. The range of flavours is wonderful with a range of dried fruit notes alongside the muscatel. We can imagine multiple uses for this from dressings to cocktails via marinades'
