Bristol foodies can't afford to miss an evening with one of Italy's oldest balsamic houses at Aqua on Tuesday 12 November.


Hosted by a representative of historic balsamic producer Giuseppe Giusti, 'An Evening With' is a chance for food fans across the city to sample a stunning five-course tasting menu, accompanied by a selection of wines and aperitifs and, of course, an introduction to a range of aged balsamics.

An evening with Gran Deposito Aceto Balsamico Giuseppe Giusti at Aqua Bristol.

The tasting menu, prepared in-house by Aqua chef Mark Attard, will be paired with wines from several regions of Italy, supplied by the wine specialists at Matthew Clark.


The Giusti representative will be talking guests through the range of balsamics on offer and what makes them unique, as well as delving into the history of the prestigious Gran Deposito Aceto Balsamico Giuseppe Giusti house.


Officially established in 1605, Gran Deposito Aceto Balsamico Giuseppe Giusti has been producing balsamic vinegar in the city of Modena for more than 400 years. During that time, the house has received the royal seal of approval in Italy and gone on to be exported to top restaurants and delicatessens around the world.

Gran Deposito Aceto Balsamico Giuseppe Giusti have been operating since 1605.

Starting with an aperitif, a vermouth from Giusti, guests will be treated to the tasting menu and drinks, before finishing with a surprise nightcap. Taking place at Aqua Welsh Back from 19:00 until 22:30 on Tuesday 12 November, this is an experience to savour.
