An olive oil and balsamic tasting room has opened in Tarrytown.
Have you seen these kind of shops before? There are big vats of oil and vinegar, and little tasting cups for you to sample the different flavors. You choose your flavor and they bottle it for you there in the store. Here’s a photo:
Pure Mounatin, iowned by owners cousins Zak Cassady-Dorion and Charlie Ruehr, has another location in Rhinebeck, and will also be selling sea salt, fresh, air-dried pasta and bread from Arthur Avenue.
Here’s a statement from Cassady-Dorion from his press release:
“Pure Mountain Olive Oil is a tasting emporium. As you walk in our store, there are 20 different balsamic vinegars and 20 different extra virgin olive oils that you can taste. We also have some complimentary products such as gourmet sea salts, cutting boards, and high-end pastas. We carry only the highest quality products because we believe our customers deserve healthy and delicious food.”
