EVOO Marketplace, Colorado's original olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting room, offers a unique educational and interactive sampling experience. With a staff of trained mixologists whipping up a variety of taste combinations using more than 50 of the finest olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars. The discovery of their high quality products by local home chefs and food lovers has helped the shop flourish.
The expert staff of mixologists have a lot to boast about. The entire selection of fresh 100% extra-virgin olive oils, ranging from mild to robust intensity, are first-pressed and cold-pressed—not chemically-deodorized or extracted. Additionally, all of the extra-virgin olive oils meet the Ultra-Premium standard, adhering to the most stringent regulations. The Marketplace chemically profiles the olives, looking at the internal components of the olives immediately at the time of crush to ensure that the freshness, purity, and integrity of the olives are of the highest quality. The numbers obtained also provide insight into the potential health benefits of each oil by measuring the antioxidant content and levels of healthy monounsaturated fat. Popular flavors include the Chilean Picual Reserve EVOO, Boundary Bend/Cobram Estate Australian Coratina EVOO, or Silver Medal Chilean Frantoio EVOO.
EVOO Marketplace's dedication to quality is not limited to their extra-virgin olive oils. Their authentically traditional balsamic vinegar hails from Modena, Italy, where it was barrel-aged for 12 to 18 years—the Italian standard. Infused with organic ingredients, every balsamic contains only natural sugars from the grapes without any artificial sweeteners, dyes, coloring, thickening agents, or added sodium. The staff of mixologists recommends different uses of their products, ranging from a dressing for salads, a marinade, or a delicious addition to a mixed drink.
