Traditional 18-Year Balsamic Vinegar

Our best-selling Traditional Dark Balsamic is aged for 18 years in wooden barrels according to time-honored techniques, giving this ultra-versatile condiment an intense and complex flavor. It's the perfect balance of sweet and sour, with subtle notes of fig and caramel.

Pick A Variation


Used in both sweet and savory dishes, this dense Traditional 18-Year Balsamic Vinegar is characterized by woodsy notes, sweet (fruity) undertones, and a robust finish. Good as a stand-alone balsamic but plays very well with others. A kitchen staple that can be used for raw dishes, as well as cooking over heat. All future searches by you for a traditional balsamic vinegar will cease.
