Gluten Free Product Review | F. Oliver’s Olive Oils

F. Oliver’s Oils and Vinegars is a specialty store  that offers estate olive oils and infused vinegars. They have locations in Canandaigua, Ithaca, and right here in my hometown of Rochester, NY.

F. Oliver’s has a mission of sourcing the freshest and highest quality olive oils and vinegars, herbs and spices. But I must be clear, F. Olivers is so much more than just olive oil. Obviously olives, olive oil, and balsamic vinegars are naturally gluten free. But even the best national brands in all their expensive glory don’t compare to the artisanal goodness of the pure pressed olive oils and balsamic vinegars that F. Oliver’s uses for it’s diverse array of naturally infused oil and vinegar blends.

What Makes F. Olivers’ Better?

Fresh Ingredients

All of F. Oliver’s olive oil is extra-virgin (EVOOs), fresh and often pressed within weeks of its harvest and crush date. Think of the highest quality grapes from California used for wine. Their single varietals have a crush date included with them and the stores regularly rotate the selection so none of the EVOOs are on the shelf past their sell by date.

The olives are crushed within hours of harvesting, ensuring that the olives remain fresh; preventing damage from handling, fungus and other issues associated with delays between harvest and crush.  The olives are mechanically pressed using only the highest quality olives and there are no chemicals or lesser quality oils used in production. As there are no packaging laws in the US, the EVOO industry is ripe with fraud and not all producers can make these guarantees.

More Than Oils

In addition to their amazing olive oil blends, F. Olivers curates a diverse selection of natural infused balsamic vinegars that are made in Modena, Italy, in the traditional style, using the highest quality grapes. Flavors like Farmstand Strawberry, Apple Orchard Apple, Maple, and Coffee are just the tip of the iceberg. These vinegars can literally be added to your water or even drank straight from the bottle like wine. They are that fresh and that good. The texture is like velvet and unlike anything you’d find in any store. The brand also creates spice blends that range from cinnamon and nutmeg to turmeric and coriander.

 F.Oliver’s olive oil is made from 100% real olives with nothing fake, phony, or gluten filled.

Always Gluten Free All The Time

What sets’ F. Olivers EVOOs apart from lesser brands are their flavor-infused blends. These blends combine only natural ingredients with no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, binders, or gunk! Blends like lemon & basil taste literally like the garden and smell even better. I loved the fact that I can be confident that my olive oil is 100% real oil with nothing fake, phony, or gluten filled.

What Does This All Mean?

F. Olivers is a Rochester based company making amazing artisanal oils and balsamics using processes, techniques, and ingredients that are fresh, natural, organic and better than the rest. I could go on and on about how wonderful the company is but I’ll let my original recipes speak for themselves.
