Drivers Shallots in Cider Vinegar

Driver’s Shallots in Cider Vinegar is a gourmet delight that brings together the sweet, delicate flavor of shallots with the tangy richness of cider vinegar.

Made by Driver’s, a respected British brand known for its high-quality pickles and preserves, these shallots are pickled to perfection, creating a versatile and flavorful condiment that can enhance a wide range of dishes.

Shallots, with their mild onion flavor and slightly sweet undertones, are the perfect choice for pickling. When combined with cider vinegar, they undergo a transformation, becoming tender and infused with a complex blend of sweet and tangy flavors.

The process of pickling shallots begins with selecting the finest quality bulbs, ensuring that each one is firm and fresh. The shallots are then peeled and placed in a brine made from cider vinegar, sugar, and a blend of aromatic spices.

Over time, the shallots absorb the flavors of the brine, resulting in a deliciously tangy and subtly sweet condiment.

History of Drivers:
The Driver family can trace its roots back to the mid 19th century when they first started serving the local community with a grocery shop in the market town of Ibstock, then later in City of Leicester.

The family started producing pickles to sell in its shops around 1902, the demand was such that in 1906 Driver’s Pickle and Vinegar Company was established by Frederick Charles Driver. Its main business centred around Pickled Onions and Malt Vinegar selling to local fishmongers and to other grocery shops in and around Leicester.

More than 100 years on, the company today is owned by the fourth generation of Driver’s and we take pride in that the products today are still made in the same tradition as in Fredericks era.
