I remember the last time I was able to taste good balsamic vinegar. I was in “Little Italy” in San Francisco. And the last time I could try a good olive oil, I was in Sacramento, at Corti Brothers, and in Napa at the Napa Valley Olive Oil Company. Now we have Olivin in Boise, at Olivin – Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom, 218 N 9th Street, Boise, ID 83702, where you can sample both olive oils and different balsamic vinegars – the best of both worlds. A wide variety of herbal infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars are available to sample. They will offer recipes for enjoying their products. Here is an excerpt from their website.
Olivin, a play on the words Olive Oil and Vinegar, is a unique specialty store located in beautiful downtown Boise. Olivin Olive Oil and Vinegar Taproom allows the customer to taste the high quality extra virgin olive oils and vinegars before purchasing. There are over 30 olive oils and vinegars offered to taste for free!
Owner, Joyce Renoff became passionate about the business when she retired after a 40 year career in real estate. Joyce wanted to try something fun so she started working in an olive oil and vinegar taproom in Annapolis, Maryland. She fell in love immediately with the store and found her passion!
The idea of Olivin came about after visiting her daughter in Boise. Joyce adored the city of Boise and the people of Idaho. Joyce quickly realized that an olive oil and vinegar taproom would be a perfect fit for the people of Boise who are dedicated to their health.
Here are some photos of our visit. Enjoy! Let them know you heard about them on this blog.
