Extra-virgin olive oil tastes better because it is crushed by hand without chemicals, the same reason pineapple tastes better when body-slammed by a lucha libre wrestler. Develop a taste for a new delicacy with this Groupon.

Groups take a seat around Oliana's olive-oil bar, where staffers guide them through tastings of dozens of extra-virgin olive oils and flavored oils and vinegars. Fresh fruits, corn bread, and bread serve as vehicles for the liquid fare. After taste buds explore exotic flavors, each person may select a 60-milliliter bottle of olive oil to take home, not including truffle oil. Oliana is open Monday–Saturday, 11 a.m.–7 p.m., with tastings from 7 p.m.–9 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m., with tastings from 5 p.m.–7 p.m.; call for scheduling details.

Oliana

Fusion blood orange. Tuscan herb. Persian lime. At Oliana, olive oil takes on as many robust flavors and scents as can be found in a chef's dreams. Amid the bottles of specialty oils and vinegars are pantry staples such as extra-virgin olive oils handy for making dressings, sautéing meats, and flavoring sauces. The store also stocks flashy balsamic vinegars, infused with flavors such as black cherry, pineapple, and espresso, as well as vinegars of the traditional variety that boast a rich flavor enhanced from hibernating in oak barrels for 18 years.

Reviews

Not only are the choices of oils and vinegars extensive and delicious, but the staff was extremely helpful and hands on.

Citrus infused oils. Truffle oils. Garlic oils. You name it and it is probably at this store.
