Welcome to Florida Olive Oil Company, where they are proud to offer the finest qualities of Olive oils, Balsamic Vinegars, Stuffed Olives, Sauces, Salsas, Sea Salts, Pestos & Olive Beauty Products.
“From chipotle and grapefruit to habanero lime, the Florida Olive Oil Company on St. Armand’s Circle has every type of olive oil and balsamic vinegar you can image, and then some.
The store stocks over 30 different flavors of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, including their best-seller, a balsamic vinegar aged 18 years to achieve its richest flavor and texture.
While owners Arnish and Sarla Patel, who opened the St. Armand’s location in November 2009, are happy to recommend their favorite products, they don’t want their customers to just take their word for it- they want them to taste for themselves.
“I want them to experience the flavor,” says Sarla Patel of the free tastings offered to all of their customers. “The taste makes the experience.”
For those looking to spice things up, the store also offers the hottest naturally grown pepper in the world, called Ghost Pepper. The blend of sea salt and naga jolokia peppers is so spicy that the jar has a warning label across the front. WARNING: It takes a while before it really hits you. You only need a small pinch.
Customers can mix and match different combinations of olive oils, vinegar and seasonings, or buy them in per-arranged packages, which make great gifts and souvenirs.
Whether you’re looking to jazz up your pasta or try out an unexpected dessert topping, Florida Olive Oil Co. has something to suit every taste.” (starmandscircle.biz)
“I really love this place. I’ve been to St. Armand’s circle. I think they have a good niche product. I rate them a five star. Their stores are beautiful and the products are
Amazing. I strongly recommend their products. – Rob M.
“This place is every olive oil lovers’ dream. There are several tasting stations for flavored olive oils and balsamic vinaigrette. You can also try it with the seasoning which they have set up in the back. I came when they were having the “Christmas in July” specials and nearly all the products were discounted 20%. Since I was coming back to NY, I didn’t want to buy too many bottles despite the bubble wrapping and protection. Two weeks later, I have already finished the 1st and only bottle of olive oil I purchased, Argentinean Olive Oil, and am almost done with the 18 yr Balsamic Vinaigrette. So I did what any person who finds a fantastic product would do… I went to the their online website and bought 5 more bottles of olive oil (basil, parmesan garlic and sun dried tomato, greek, roasted chili, coratina, and 1 bottle of cilanto garlic balsamic vinaigrette. Shipping was free with a 6-bottle purchase. I recommend trying the olive oils with the bread dip seasoning or the italian (zesty) seasoning. This place is open later than most stores in Venice and the staff, mother and daughter, were very friendly and knowledgeable of the products. This place is a definite “go-to” when visiting or living in Venice. They also have a location in St. Armand’s Circle. I stopped in there too because I couldn’t get enough!! I have found a new obsession!” – Richel R.
