Our Balsamic Vinegars are artisan products produced with love, care and tradition in Modena, Italy. Our Traditional <18 yr. Aged Dark Balsamic is made by placing the grapes in copper kettles, and gently caramelizing them over an open fire. Then they are aged in wooden casks for up to 18 years using a technique known as the Solera method. As the balsamic evaporates and reduces in size, it is moved to progressively smaller and smaller casks. Over time the balsamic vinegar draws out the flavours of the various wooden casks:oak,ash,mulberry etc..and mellows into a deliciously sweet and savoury balsamic. Our flavoured Aged Dark Balsamics are made using the <18 yr. Aged Dark Traditional as the base, then infused with 100% natural flavour
