With the ever-growing trend toward gourmet dining, the seasoning sector is expanding, and these brands are expanding with it, delivering the latest in oil & vinegar sets
OIL & VINEGAR JAR SET
Crafted from light and break-resistant borosilicate glass, this contemporary oil & vinegar jar set features drip-catching spouts, along with tight soft silicone caps that help to keep oils and vinegars fresh.

Cole & Mason
The brand’s popular range of oil & vinegar pourers has expanded. Designed for those who want the convenience of having both oil and vinegar dispensed via one bottle, the Duo Pourer features a beautifully styled glass bottle with a smaller “twist” triton inner bottle inside, allowing for two ingredients to be stored together. Liquid is dispensed via the stainless-steel flow control pourer, simply twist one way for oil or the other way for vinegar and move to the centre to seal. There is also a clever drip collection system which means there is no messy residue left.
From Italian design company Ichendorf comes the Quanto Basta Collection, which consists of two cruets that represent, and dose, a drizzle of oil and a splash of vinegar. The cruet is made of two parts – a 30cl bottle and an ampoule to strew the liquid to the plate. The oil ampoule contains a drizzle (spoon) and the vinegar contains a splash (teaspoon) of vinegar. The pieces are handmade and lampworked in borosilicate glass. www.ichendorfmilano.com
BALSAM PORTABLE SEASONING DUO
