About Oil & Vinegar

Oil & Vinegar’s Story

If you enjoy an unexpected culinary adventure, you will surely enjoy visiting us at Oil & Vinegar.  In our tasteful culinary gift shops you can find a selection of beautifully-packaged culinary gifts filled with items sourced from around the world.  Not only do we have a wide variety of olive, nut, and seed oils which are wonderfully paired with a selection of balsamic, wine, and pulp vinegars, but we also offer a vast selection of gourmet products all characteristic of the international countries we represent as a brand.  Our products are selected with care and are produced in small batches by traditional family businesses.   We make it a priority to ensure our products maintain their authentic flavor - some say you can "taste the Mediterranean sun" in many of our products.



The party starts when you visit one of our shops, there is plenty to see, smell, and – most importantly – to taste!  Should you need advice on selecting ingredients for entertaining or finding that perfect gift,  our enthusiastic staff are there to offer tips and recommendations so you are sure to leave thoroughly satisfied and excited to share your experience with others. 

Our Concept

Oil & Vinegar is a successful franchise formula, born out of a passion for only the best food and the highest quality ingredients.  After the first shop was opened in the Netherlands, Oil & Vinegar has grown into an international retail chain spanning the globe. You can find our shops in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, UK and the United States of America. 

Oil & Vinegar

At Oil & Vinegar, we like to refer to our customers as our “Guests”.  Our #1 priority is to provide our Guests with a culinary experience not soon forgotten.  Our Guests may sample products at their leisure and receive advice on product use and recipe ideas from our friendly and knowledgeable staff. All purchases may be gift-wrapped on the spot in an attractive way. The shop’s design, atmosphere and sampling options turn shopping into an adventurous experience.

At Oil & Vinegar, everything we do revolves around our PASSION FOR TASTE!
