At any Olive Tap shops, you can sample oils and vinegars from 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 oils, flavored olive oils, vinegars, and balsamic vinegars. Once you decide on your favorite products, we bottle it fresh, on the spot.
