Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar are common and useful condiments in a home or restaurant setting. My packaging pairs the finest of both together in hand-blown bottles, all straight from Italy. Olive oil with the ‘ultra-premium’ grade is unique and would be one of two olive oils to earn this rating. The vinegar is a unique veriety, Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale. It goes through a unique aging process of at least 12 years. Because these products are so valuable, they are marketed to a class that values quality over price.

The package reflects both the extremely fine quality and rustic Italian roots of the products. The bottles are hand-blown and therefore a unique product for every customer. Though they are initially bottles housing these condiments, they are works of art on their own. They are intended to live beyond the finite liquids they hold as a vase or table decoration. It features a sliding wooden door and partition, 100% post-consumer dust-free padding, and laser-etched design. The packaging emphasizes the exqusite and handcrafted qualities that make this product so unique.
