  1. ‘Gran Riserva’ ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: a Great Taste Award Winnerthis is an authentic, thick, syrupy balsamic from Modena, aged in barrels for many years. 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 a gorgeously thick & sweet balsamic & 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. 100ml with pourer
  2. White ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: another Great Taste Award Winnerthis is light, fruity & full of fruit flavours. Naturally sweet, we don’t add a grain of sugar to this balsamic either, resulting in a clean, fresh-tasting dressing. It’s sweet with a hint of creaminess & almost-butterscotch banknotes. Perfect for salads, halloumi, goat’s cheese, tomatoes, avocado, fish, rice dishes or roasted veg. 100ml with pourer
  3. Fig & Date ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic: perfect for bread-dipping, drizzling on salads (especially goat’s cheese), anything gamey, steak, halloumi or even desserts. It works beautifully with rich meats like venison, lamb, goose & duck too – just a few drops over meat as you serve with add huge flavour. 100ml with pourer
  4. Rosemary & Garlic oil: this is a stunning flavour combo & adds a gorgeous herby, garlicky kick to anything! It peps up roast or sautéed potatoes, pizza, stir-fries, seafood & more. Add some acidity with a lemon or vinegar & you’ve got a quick marinade that works especially well with lamb. Drizzle on pizza, pasta, stir-fries or simply dunk crusty bread into it – it’s super drizzled on flatbreads or focaccia too! 100ml with pourer
  5. Sicilian Lemon oil: our cold-pressed Sicilian Lemon Oil is light & delicious, giving a gorgeously lemony kick to anything it touches! It’s beautiful drizzled on prawns, pizza, pasta, fish, scallops & much more. It’s also equally at home as a marinade or salad dressing. 100ml with pourer
  6. Basil oil: our cold-pressed Basil Oil is heady & fresh, the perfect partner to any seafood, tomatoes, salads, pizza, pasta & more. Make a simple dressing with a touch of balsamic or lemon juice and drizzle over anything for an incredible herby kick! It’s great on bruschetta or caprese and makes a great base for pesto if you’re running short on fresh basil! 100ml with pourer
  7. Steak rub: fab on steak (obviously) or mix with mince & finely diced onions for incredible homemade burgers. 1-2 tsp makes a chilli or casserole richer & more intense. 40g
  8. Chicken rub: mild but full of flavour, this gives chicken & pork a massive flavour boost – try a pinch on your roast potatoes too! 40g
  9. Herby Fish rub: great for fish but also works well on pork & chicken with it’s lemony, herby notes. Pairs well with halloumi as well. 35g

  13. Chimichurri: fabulous as a condiment for red meat, mix with oil & vinegar & drizzle over food as you serve. Great as a rub or marinade too. 35g
  14. Pork rub: smoked & sweet paprika balanced with lots of garlicky, herby aromatics. Perfect for roasts, pulled pork or chops, but works well on roast veg & roast potatoes too. 40g
  15. Harissa rub: inspired by North African spices, this chilli-based blend with mint, caraway, cumin & more is great for livening up any meat, fish or veg. Add oil or yoghurt to make a paste. 40g

  17. Piri Piri rub: a blend of smoky & sweet paprika with a kick, balanced with herbs & a lemony, citrusy tang to keep it fresh. Fab on roast chicken, pork, wedges or prawns. Most Piri Piri rubs are packed full of sugar, but NOT ours! 40g
  18. Chinese 5 Spice: rich blend of aromatics including star anise, fennel & cloves, perfect for stir fries, pork & duck. So rich you will only need a good pinch, 1 tsp at most. 35g

For our balsamic vinegars, we use our GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNING Gran Riserva ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar as the base for our infusions. This is what the judges had to say about this:

  • 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 authentic aged balsamic vinegars compared with cheaper imitations are:

  1. WE DON’T use watery, thin balsamic vinegar; ours are thick enough to use as a glaze but with NO artificial sweeteners or thickeners.
  2. WE DON’T do ‘reductions’ – cheaper vinegars that have been boiled to reduce them (sometimes even with sugar) & make them thicker.
  3. 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. 

Ours are unlike any ‘supermarket balsamic’ or cheap, watery vinegars made with 40-50% sugar, so you don’t need any more than a few drops or the lightest drizzle to create a flavour explosion!

Our rubs are pure herbs & spice, no fillers, no flour, no MSG & nothing artificial – plus, none of these have sugar either. We also use a quarter of the salt you’d normally find in cheaper imitations so you only need 1-2 tsp to create a family meals, meaning there’s 4-5 meals or more in each pot!

Pure, honest ingredients to give food attitude!

There are no fillers, flour, or added sugar in any of these products.

    Brilliant selection and made a great birthday present.When I called to sing Happy Birthday one oil, one balsamic glaze and one rub was already chosen and being prepared for dinner! Will give loads of pleasure to all the family. As recipient also has food intolerances the fact there was such a great choice made the gift even better and special and “easy”.
