About Us

The Pristine Olive Tasting Bar provides our customers with the world's highest quality and freshest extra virgin olive oils. We are a tasting bar, allowing our customers to come in and learn about each of our products, taste over 60 different oils and balsamic vinegars, enjoy the many flavours, and freshly bottle their favourite selections.

We only carry current crop olive oils from both the Northern and Southern hemisphere. Based on the harvest dates, this guarantees the freshest oils are available to you all year round. Our customers have the opportunity to discover their favourite estate grown, single-variety extra virgin olive oils from our selection of Italian, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese, Tunisian, Californian, Chilean, Peruvian, South African, and Australian oils. Our delicious Traditional Style Balsamic Vinegar Condimento are made from cooked Trebbiano grape must aged for up to 18-years using the Solera System, and are PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) certified to come from Modena, Italy. Our popular balsamic line includes our Traditional Balsamic Condimento as well as all natural infused vinegars like pomegranate, dark chocolate, fig, strawberry, pineapple and many more!

The Extra Virgin Olive Oils found at The Pristine Olive define a new category of olive oil which is well beyond the current Extra Virgin standards. Our standards were developed to define and distinguish the freshest, highest quality olive oil in the world, by separating the "Good" from the "Great" with third party sensory evaluation and credentialed laboratory testing methods. The Pristine Olive is the only place in London which can offer their customers the ultimate in olive oil flavour, authenticity, and tree to bottle transparency.  While others still use meaningless “best before dates”,  we want you to know when your olive oil was crushed!

This is a very unique time in the olive oil industry worldwide as a flood of low quality, adulterated olive oil is being dumped on the market due to economic pressures forcing the price of olive oil down to record low levels. Quality producers are being forced out of business as they simply cannot compete on a level playing field. A growing number of new "Copycat" gourmet olive oil and vinegar stores are also being opened across the country selling these low-grade or simply counterfeit extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

At the same time, consumers have been alerted to these cheap tactics through the efforts of Tom Mueller with 'Extra Virginity" (www.truthinoliveoil.com), UC Davis's studies, Australia's pushing for higher standards, etc. There are now more customers aware of the problems in the olive oil industry and are actively seeking answers.

Our goal at The Pristine Olive is to educate each customer by allowing them to experience what high quality olive oil should taste like. But, we also educate the customer on Why it tastes better!

The Pristine Olive Tasting Bar specializes in real, fresh, certified, extra virgin olive oils. You will always find the unique chemistry and harvest/crush date posted on each of our extra virgin olive oils.

You will not find an extra virgin olive oil of higher quality then the oils carried at The Pristine Olive. Our products are the best of the best, and although there will be imitators, there will never be duplicators.

For those who wish to eat healthier, enjoy cooking with superior ingredients, and seek out the many health benefits of consuming authentic extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegar, this is the place for you!
