$10 for $20 Worth of Extra-Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars
The Olive Branch's global selection spans extra-virgin olive oils, such as California Manz ($16 for 375 ml) or black truffle from Northern Italy ($24 for 375 ml), and balsamic vinegars, such as an 18-year-old traditional balsamic from Modena, Italy ($16 for 375 ml) or a Sicilian-lemon white balsamic ($17 for 375 ml).
The Olive Branch
Northern Indiana may seem an unexpected destination for cold-pressed Spanish olive oils and 18-year-old Italian balsamic vinegars, but the owners of The Olive Branch are working to change that. At each of their boutiques, they line the shelves with extra-virgin olive oils from famous olive-producing regions, such as Italy, Tunisia, and California. They champion these first-press, extra-virgin oils for their reported health benefits, deeper dimensions of flavor, and ability to make any icy walkway that much more comical.
Besides the oils, they stock an international selection of balsamic vinegars, ranging from traditional varieties to blends infused with ingredients such as blackberries, dark chocolate, and pomegranate. The staff invites visitors to sample anything in the store, dispensing samples of both the oils and vinegars from stainless-steel fustis.
The Olive Branch's team members further expand guests' palates and kitchens with premium items such as Wind & Willow dessert and cheese-ball mixes and a selection of cruets and kitchenware. They can even compile these into gift baskets to celebrate special occasions such as holidays, birthdays, or the end of a Rocky film marathon.
