Product Description

The Ancient Olive – Traditional Balsamic Vinegar

Crafted in Modena, Italy and inspired by rare lots of 18 Year Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia, our Traditional 18 Year Style dark balsamic has everything you would expect in a world-class balsamic: the perfect balance and structure of sweet and sour, notes of prune and caramel with a creamy texture that extends into a long finish. Made with an exceptionally high percentage of Italian Lambrusco, Sangiovese and Trebbiano grapes that are slowly cooked to create the highest quality grape must base. The must is then combined with barrel aged Sangiovese wine vinegar to start the acetification process. The end result is the most premium example of an extremely high quality balsamic condimento that pairs well with almost every olive oil in our store. A staff and customer favorite and our bestselling product.

The Ancient Olive – Garlic Olive Oil 200 mL

The Ancient Olive – Pesto Olive Oil 200mL

Be sure to pair with Traditional 18 Year Style or Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic for an exciting new vinaigrette or marinade!

Frik & Frak – K.I.S.S Sauce

Keep It Simple San Marzano. What did you think it meant? Keeping it simple is just what we’re doing in this jar of sauce. The small town of San Marzano in Italy is nestled at the foot of Mount Vesuvius where the terroir is composed of volcanic soil. The tomatoes grow up robust without too much acidity and not too much sweetness. In a word, perfect. We think they’re the best tomatoes and that’s why we hand-crush them and add just a few other ingredients to make K.I.S.S. Just look at her: irrepressibly red, full bodied, tons of personality! And when you taste her, you know she’s been sipping on the white wine to give her just enough pucker. 

Enjoy this sensual beauty as she is. Or scandalize her more with the sprinkling in of your own ingredients. Toss in some twisted pasta and she’s ready for you. Come get some..

Naturally Med – Handcrafted Olive Wood 12” Spoon

This promises to be the most beautiful olive wood wooden spoon – 12″ you’ll ever see. A 12″ long cooking spoon made of olive wood, patterned by the natural grain of the wood. This olive wood spoon has a narrow, elegant handle and a rounded end.

Olive wood is ideal for food preparation as the natural oil content of olive wood means that it kills bacteria. It is therefore more hygienic than other wood or plastic products. All our products are finished with olive oil and so will not taint any food it is in contact with. These hand-made pieces are carved out of a single piece of wood so are rare as well as being unique, beautiful and durable. These olive wood spoons make a great gift.

This Linguine is hand cut and infused with various spices and vegetable purees to make a striped appearance.

Our goal is to always send out the freshest possible small-batch goodies. Occasionally we’ll ship something slightly different than what’s listed here, but we promise it will be equally delicious!
