From ancient times to the present day, olive oil has been used to enhance food. Now evidence shows that a diet based on olive oil can add years to your life and may even prevent diseases. We at Emerald Coast Olive Oil are happy to provide you with the best olive oils the world has to offer. We stress quality, freshness, and variety. Our olive oils come from around the world, and they include both natural 100% extra virgin olive oils and delicious fruit- and herb-flavored 100% extra virgin olive oils to take your meals to new heights of flavor.

In addition, we offer an amazing array of aged balsamic vinegars that enhance dishes from soups to desserts. Come let us show you a delicious world of oils and vinegars where quality is in every product.

Not All Olive Oil is Created Equal

Quality is everything when it comes to olive oil. It is important to start with the freshest premium olives. They must be taken from tree to crush to storage in the quickest possible time to avoid oxidization which degrades the oil. Cleanliness is critical, as is temperature control. Our olive oils go from tree to crush to storage in approximately six hours done under premium conditions, far exceeding international standards. (The minimal time standard of the International Olive Oil Commission is 24 hours to have an oil be considered extra virgin.)

After the first crush, the remaining olive pulp, skins, and stems are crushed again and again with heat and water, which destroys many of the health benefits and allows more time for oxidization to occur. The resulting oils are what is often referred to as pure, refined, or light olive oils. Often, other types of oil, such as canola are added to “lighten” the oil as well.

Beware! Olive oils in the US can claim to be extra virgin if they contain only 12-15% actual extra virgin olive oil. The rest of the content can be poorer grades of olive oil or even other types of oil. The consumer is not aware that they are getting oils seriously lacking in the health benefits they expect. If the bottle doesn’t say 100% extra virgin olive oil, it is almost certainly not all extra virgin olive oil.

The University of California at Davis, the premier US research facility on olive oils, did a study of grocery store olive oils in 2010 and discovered that not a single olive oil tested was 100% extra virgin olive oil, many being as low as 12-15% extra virgin. Our olive oils at Emerald Coast Olive Oil are all 100% extra virgin. (Our flavored oils were made with 100% extra virgin olive oils and then have had natural flavors added, such and Tuscan Herb and Chipotle, so they are no longer technically 100% extra virgin.)

  • This place is great!! Fabulous selection of quality olive oils and vinegars! Staff is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Not pushy or intimidating to purchase anything....just very helpful with the many, many delicious tastings. We purchased 9 different flavored olive oils and flavored vinegars...only wish we could have purchased more! Each oil and vinegar is so flavorful, we couldn't wait to get home to try them! Sure, a bit more expensive than Walmart's olive oils, but you can't even compare the taste and quality! These are definitely worth their price, and more!
  • So much to try! Love the seasonal olive oils.
