The Pristine Olive is a local olive oil tasting bar, that offers the most fresh, and pure extra virgin olive oil. You’re able to taste test all the different types of oil, and make a date out of it. The shop offers tasting parties with up to 20 people at a time, where you can learn about all the health benefits, and differences between store bought oil and The Pristine Olive oil. Store owner Jamie Griffith, describes the business as a learning experience.
“Our whole goal is to educate and give them enough information so that wherever they do buy, they know they’re getting the real stuff, so it is a bit of a learning experience” – Jamie Griffith
Jamie also explains that most olive oil you buy from your local grocery store that claims to be extra virgin, is not.
“what we have discovered is 70% of extra virgin olive oil is not, and it all comes back to freshness, thats one thing we’re kind of lacking here in North America and actually there’s a lot of fraud throughout the world.” – Jamie Griffith
He goes onto say that the olive oil they sell in the shop is the most pure and fresh extra virgin oil product.
“So we get it directly from the farmer, and it’s all verified by third party labs so we can guarantee you that you’re getting the real extra virgin.” – Jamie Griffith
The most unique part of this shop, is that they have much more than just olive oil. They offer different flavours of both infused olive oil and balsamic vinegar, olive oil soap bars, olive oil infused salt, pasta, popcorn, and so much more.
The Pristine Olive is the only place in London where you can taste test, learn, and find the best natural products for your cupboard.
They showcase products at the Western fair district every Saturday from 8am – 3pm, or you can visit their main store at 884 Adelaide Street.
