For many years, my wife prepared marinated chicken and/or pork as main dishes for gatherings of family and friends. Each time, guests were awed by the flavor of the meats and wanted to know the recipes which were actually developed in her grandmother's kitchen in Taurage, Lithuania. But the secret recipes were never divulged, not even to her closest friends.
One day in 2012, we were talking about the marinades and how great they tasted, how everyone asked about the recipes, and discussed the idea of perhaps bottling them. Over a thousand recipes were researched and found nothing close to the exceptional flavors her recipes offered. We, of course, didn't want to be just another marinade.
With the knowledge that they were undeniably unique, we proceeded and Baltic Brand™ Premium European-style Marinades and Cooking Sauces are the result. All of our products are made with the finest American and European ingredients, which are naturally gluten, lactose, cholesterol and MSG-free. They are blended to perfection in the United States, and packed in recyclable glass to retain the mouth-watering flavors for use on your favorite choice of meats, veggies, salads and more. Baltic Brand™ marinades "Turns Ordinary into Extraordinary™".
