Our Super 6 Balsamic Box is an incredible collection of some of our finest aged balsamic vinegars, including THREE Great Taste Award Winners, presented in a custom gift box with Recipe Tips for that perfect present
Set contains SIX FULL SIZE BOTTLES, five of our beautiful ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegars: ‘Gran Riserva’, Rich Raspberry, Blackberry & Rosemary, Pomegranate & Fig and our Ginger & Honey, plus our stunning award-winning White Aged Balsamic Vinegar
We use our GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNING Gran Riserva ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar as the base for the infusions This is what the judges had to say about this base balsamic:
- Glossy, with good consistency; the ageing has done its work
- Real molasses notes; complex sweetness & lovely balance of acidity
- A dark & rich balsamic with good consistency & beautiful sheen
The key differences between our stunning, authentic aged balsamic vinegars compared with cheaper imitations are:
- WE DON’T use watery, thin balsamic vinegar; ours are thick enough to use as a glaze but with NO artificial sweeteners or thickeners
- WE DON’T do ‘reductions’ – cheaper vinegars that have been boiled to reduce them (sometimes even with sugar) & make them thicker
- WE DON’T add a grain of sugar, caramel (E150) or sweeteners anywhere in the process – all the sweetness comes from the passing of time & from the fruit itself
This is unlike any ‘supermarket balsamic’ or cheap, watery vinegars made with 40-50% sugar
Instead, our ‘Special Reserve’ is a stunning, authentic aged balsamic from Modena, home of the World’s finest balsamic vinegars, aged for years in barrels until just the right balance of sweetness is attained & then gently infused to give a rich, intense flavour explosion

‘Gran Riserva’ ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: a Great Taste Award Winner, try a drizzle on meat & game as you serve, on figs, goat’s cheese salad, ice cream, fruit, a cheese board & much more This is gorgeously rich & thick & would easily stand up against one costing twice as much from a high-end retailer If you’re looking for a glaze (but without the sugar, emulsifiers or artificial thickeners), this is the one for you
Rich Raspberry ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: packed with fresh fruit flavours, the tart raspberries are balanced beautifully by the rich, sweet, thick balsamic vinegar to create a taste explosion! Drizzle on meats – especially game or lamb – or add a dash to sauces We drizzle on salads, fruit, ice cream or even add a shot to prosecco for a twist!
Blackberry & Rosemary ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: one of our absolute customer favourites, this is a stunning combination of fruit & balsamic vinegars with a subtle back note of herb Use it as your ‘go-to’ balsamic: whenever you need to dress a salad, dip chunks of crusty bread into something, drizzle on meats or add a dash to sauces, this is a beautiful aged classic balsamic with a twist to bring it right up to date with today’s tastes It’s the perfect partner to goat’s cheese salad, roast vegetables or tomatoes, but it really excels when a few drops are drizzled over lamb, venison or any game Add a few drops to a gravy or jus for an extra special sauce or make a marinade by adding a dash to oil, crushed garlic, thyme and whatever else you fancy: marinate pigeon, lamb or game for a few hours before cooking and you’ll create a meal you’ll definitely do over & over!
Pomegranate & Fig ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: another Great Taste Award Winner, bursting with rich fruit flavours, the fresh, zingy pomegranate with the added depth of the fig balances beautifully to create a richness not found in cheap copies or sugary fruit vinegars Rich, thick & sweet with no bitterness, add a drizzle to anything gamey, salads – especially goat’s cheese – couscous or quinoa, cheese boards & more This combination of flavours is destined to be a firm favourite with the discerning foodie We’ve even drizzled it over rocket & added it to a pizza before serving
Ginger & Honey ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: This infusion of ginger & honey gives a unique flavour profile, working beautifully with sweet meats like pork, pancetta & duck Rich, thick & sweet with no bitterness, it won’t caramelise as easily as the fruit-based balsamic vinegars so is versatile enough to use in cooking; a drizzle when cooking pancetta or roast pork will add an extra dimension of flavour that works beautifully Add a few drops to a stew, casserole or sauce too We drizzle it on sautéed greens, right at the end Add a drizzle to serve with pork instead of apple sauce
White Aged Balsamic Vinegar: a Great Taste Award Winner, our beautiful White Aged Balsamic vinegar is light, fruity & full of fruit flavours Naturally sweet, we don’t add a grain of sugar to this balsamic either, resulting in a bright, fresh dressing, sweet with a hint of creaminess & almost-butterscotch backnotes A lot of people haven’t heard of a white balsamic, and even the ones that have haven’t tasted one this good! Drizzle on salads, tuna, scallops, fruit, ice cream or use to balance a ceviche for a lightness that is difficult to achieve using a cheap, sugary-sweet fruit vinegar or one of our traditional, rich aged balsamic vinegars Try a shot in a prosecco or a tall glass with ice & soda water for a refreshing long drink!
