Local Business Spotlight: Olives On Tap July 05 2016
Meet our newest partner business in the lower mainland: Olives On Tap! We're thrilled to offer Vancouver gift delivery from this delicious and independent shop 7 days a week: they'll get you well oiled!
Founded in 2012, Olives On Tap is a proud local purveyor of premium extra virgin olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and specialty foods. With locations in North Vancouver and Whistler, each Olives on Tap boutique is a gourmet tasting room where you're encouraged to sample, learn, and enjoy before you buy. It's a true foodie experience!
Their gourmet oils and vinegars will impress even the most discerning home chef, and they're the perfect way to elevate any dish. Even a humble salad! We asked owner and prolific home cook Andrew Cameron to tell us a bit about his vision for Olives On Tap. Here's what he had to say:
"We provide a space where customers can take the time to taste, smell and experience each oil and vinegar before making a decision. Our knowledgeable staff can provide a wealth of information because we understand how confusing the world of extra virgin olive oils can be. What does it mean? How is it made? Where is it made? Is it healthy and is it the real deal? Let us share some insights, knowledge and experiences, and above all, create some new flavor experiences of your own!"
A Nova Scotia native, Andrew relocated to the west coast where he now spends hours in the kitchen, cooking, learning and experimenting. He splits his time between North Van and Whistler so you'll spot him in each shop. Stop by and introduce yourself!
