Because you don’t want that stale, grocery store-bought shit with its bogus polyphenol count and subpar oleic acids:
O Live Brooklyn features the largest, fresh selection of single varietal extra virgin olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars on tap in Brooklyn.
Based at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge in the historic Gretsch Building, O Live Brooklyn is the premiere destination for professional & home chefs, organic food lovers, CSA & Coop members, as well as all types of “foodies” who appreciate pure, high quality, organic and all natural foods. Family owned & operated, we import our products from Veronica Foods who have had a presence in the olive oil industry for the past 90 years. They work in close partnership with farmers in both hemispheres to deliver fresh, high quality products to us all year long. They personally source all of their products and never deal with middlemen.
We strongly believe that extra virgin olive oil is like fruit juice: highly perishable. It is healthier and more flavorful when consumed fresh. This is one of the reasons why we post the Harvest Date on every oil we offer.
In addition to the harvest date, we are extremely obsessive when it comes to the chemistry of our olive oils. The chemistry of a particular oil can tell you many things. It tells us the polyphenol count (antioxidant value), the measurement which dictates flavor intensity, to whether it’s suitable for high heat cooking, based on its unique free fatty acid measurement and fruit condition. We also measure oleic acid in our oils, the monounsaturated fat in Olive Oil that makes it so healthy.
Grand Opening Celebration Saturday November 10th, 3-6pm.
