Arabica Food & Spice introduces Cherry Molasses to UK

Arabica Food & Spice has announced the addition of Cherry Molasses, to its extensive, Middle Eastern inspired range.

Launching at the Speciality & Fine Food Fair (3- 5 September), this rich and fruity reduction is made from sour Montmorency cherries sourced in the mountainous countryside of Afyon Province in western Turkey and is the first of its kind to launch in the UK.

In Turkey, cherry molasses is traditionally mixed with ice-cold water and served as a thirst-quenching summer drink; however, the uses are far more extensive.

Arabica founder, James Walters, says: “I love Cherry molasses muddled into cocktails, drizzled on a warm Aubergine salad or over a scoop of milk & Mastica ice cream or stirred into my breakfast yogurt. Utterly delicious.”

Arabica Food & Spice Cherry Molasses will be available in Selfridges Food Hall and on Arabica's website.

Arabica was established in 1999 and has grown from a market stall operation to an established, multi-dimensional business operating across several sites, including a restaurant in Borough Market,
