At any Olive Tap retail store location you can sample an assortment of the most unique, flavorful, and freshest award-winning extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar product selections available. Both the olive oil and balsamic vinegar are stored in large stainless steel urns called Fusti. Side by side, you'll be able to detect the subtle–and sometimes not so subtle–differences in the various extra virgin olive oil, flavored olive oil, and balsamic vinegar products. Once you decide on your favorites, they are bottled on the spot, fresh and wholesome.
Beyond our 100% extra virgin olive oil, flavored oil, and vinegar products (balsamic vinegar and Red Wine Vinegar), The Olive Tap also offers a broad menu of spices, herbs, seasonings, culinary sauces, marinades, tapenades, and jams.

Lemon Olive Oil & Citrus Olive Oil: Lemon, Orange and Lime Olive Oils usage applications include seasoning seafood, chicken and beef, vinaigrettes, as well as dressing vegetables and fruits.
Butter Flavored Olive Oil: For those who want the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil with the creamy, sweet flavor of butter. Usage applications include most culinary situations where the recipe calls for butter, including drizzled over potatoes, sprayed on popcorn, in sauces and brushed on corn.
Nut & Seed Oils:
Roasted Sesame Oil and French Roasted Walnut Oil: These heart-healthy seed/nut oils have delicious flavors that can be used in cooking, baking and in salads.
Grapeseed Oil & Avocado Oil: Heart-healthy and flavor neutral oils; especially useful for high temperature frying and sautéing.
Hot Pepper Olive Oil and Chipotle Olive Oil: The pepper flavored EVOOs add zip to any dish. Chipotle is smoky with mild heat while Hot Pepper exhibits medium heat.
White Truffle Oil and Porcini Olive Oil: White Truffle Oil is in a class by itself. Produced for The Olive Tap by the renowned Savini Tartufi Tuscany Company, the unmistakable flavor and intense aroma of this oil is sought after by chefs and gourmet cooks. The Olive Tap Porcini flavored olive oil, also from Savini, adds an earthy mushroom flavor particularly suited to sauces, risotto, pasta and hearty meats.
Our Balsamic Vinegar selections are sourced from the most respected producers in Modena, Italy. The artisans making the rare Tradizionale Balsamic Vinegar of Modena have adapted their methods to produce Aceto Balsamico di Modena, thereby meeting the demand for a less expensive but high quality Balsamic Vinegar.
Our Balsamic Vinegar Selections:
Dark Barrel-Aged Balsamic Vinegar: Primarily used in salads, many of these vinegars do double duty as condiments, glazes and marinades. Our most popular Balsamic Vinegar selections include:
White Balsamic Vinegar:Not true balsamic vinegar, the white balsamic vinegar was originally developed as an alternative to the dark variety, which would discolor or alter the appearance of certain foods. All are refreshingly sweet, tart and distinct.
Wine Vinegars: Champagne and Champagne Pear, Sherry Reserve and Red Wine vinegar (Cabernet, Zinfandel, Merlot, seasonally).
Vincotto: Similar to Balsamic Vinegar, but much thicker and more complex (classic and flavored).
