We celebrate Father’s Day this month and can’t think of a better gift for your Dad, Grandfather or other Father in your life than a gift box from Mantry—the #1 food gift for men—a wooden crate filled with unique food items discovered all over the United States.  

Balsamic Nectar was happy to partner with Mantry last fall and was featured in one of their monthly subscriber boxes. We are happy to share Mantry’s take on the classic Bruschetta, featuring Balsamic Nectar.
