3454 Mountain Essence: fruity balsamicos of the finest kind.

Aged for at least 10 years, our 3454 Beyond Balsamico is given the time it needs to develop its full flavor potential. It owes its strong character to first-class Swiss apples, which we harvest at the best stage of ripeness and process according to traditional methods. The delicate blend is aged in French oak barrels. The ripening process is under constant control and guarantees the highest quality.

Each of the nine varieties is made with tasty, perfectly ripened Swiss fruits, topped off with 5% of our refined 3454 Beyond Balsamico.

Apple Balsamico

Apple: the seductive classic.

There were once around 4000 varieties of the world’s most important fruit. Today, just under two thirds remain. A very small, but exquisite portion is to be found in our 3454 Mountain Essence Apple Balsamico. It’s the perfect glaze to top any apple cake.
