THE FLAVOR EXPERIENCE

Imagine thick, syrupy, extra-aged balsamic vinegar, but with less acidity and a sweet, roasted garlic flavor profile throughout.  That's what you have here.

THE STORY

A bit of happenstance resulted in this product hitting the market. For decades, the Japanese government has been studying the health benefits of black garlic, and recently concluded that regular consumption will minimize or prevent the onset of Alzheimer's and dementia.  They are so convinced of this, they are providing grants to black garlic producers to buy the equipment necessary to convert the garlic into pill form.  The government then buys back the pills from the producer and distribute them to the state-run elderly care facilities.

The first step in the process of converting garlic to pill form is to slow-roast it until the sugars caramelize, and then pulverize it into a syrup.  Our importer of black garlic happened to be in the facility during this stage of the process, tasted it, and requested the bottle it for him.  The rest is history.
