TV Celebrity Chef Alan Coxon has created a unique multi award winning historic food range including a Mediaeval old English Ale-Gar using an Ale recipe once drank by Queen Elizabeth 1st, a Roman Vinegar using herbs and spices favoured back then, and an Ancient Greek Vinaigre with a recipe taken from the time of the first ever Olympic games.

Mediaeval Old English 15th Century ‘Ale-Gar’™
After ten years of development and research Alan Coxon is proud to have created a totally new and unique product. His unique Ale brew used to produce ‘AleGar’™ has been recreated using an original 15th century Mediaeval old English Ale recipe. The Ale-Gar™, with its deep dark colour and hints of chocolate, cinnamon and roasted malt has a unique flavour, as well as being the biggest Ale-ternative to a Balsamic vinegar in its history, it’s also a perfect Ale-ternative to a Worcestershire sauce or even a healthier Ale-ternative to a soy sauce. All the ingredients are specifically sourced for quality and are all natural with no additives, colourants or undesirables whatsoever. The ultimate healthy seasoning and dressing all rolled into one.

Ancient Greek Vinaigre™
The Ancient Greeks were historically respected far and wide as leaders in the culinary field. The dominant flavours of Greek cuisine were honey, vinegar, fish sauce and a few carefully balanced herbs and spices. Alan Coxon’s Ancient Geek Vinaigre has taken a route of balance and simplicity, while bringing out the individual flavours. The sweetness comes from the vine fruits, a slight bitterness from the coriander and a clean, fresh acidity from the wine. The aroma is light, fruity and fragrant befitting of a Greek goddess and possibly why it is a favourite of the ladies. This true wine vinegar will give you a kick and kiss at the same time.

The Roman Vinaigre™
Alan Coxon’s research and influences for the Roman Vinaigre is derived from three of Ancient Rome’s greatest gastronomes, all named Apicious, who lived during the rise of Julius and Augustus Caesar, Emperors Tiberius and Trajan. Needless to say, by the end of the first century AD the name Apicious had become a symbol of wealth and all of the good things in life. This Roman Vinaigre was made using quality wine, brewed naturally and then infused with some of Ancient Rome’s favourite spices. Look out for warming flavours such as cinnamon, hints of chamomile and a touch of peppercorn, sweetened by one of the oldest sugars known to man, honey – a favourite and much used ingredient in the Roman period.
