Pure Mountain Olive Oil
We here at Pure Mountain Olive Oil provide our guests with the freshest extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar in the world. We buy the best imports we can find – from Italy, Spain, Greece, Morocco, Turkey, Chile, California and anywhere the oil takes us.
In addition to varietal oils, we offer the opportunity to enjoy naturally infused olive oils and flavored balsamic vinegars to tantalize your palate. See our recipes page for great ideas on how to mix and match all of our different flavors.
The best part about our business is that you get to try our products before you buy them. You will quickly understand the quality difference between Pure Mountain products and what you find at the grocery store – and we guarantee that you will not turn back. Come into our store, meet the team and have a great time helping yourself to all of the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and sea salt that you can handle.
At the store, we can assist you in finding the perfect combination of oils and balsamics. We also have tons of delicious recipes that you can try out.
Can’t come to the store? Sorry to hear that. But we have tried to recreate our in-store experience online by offering pairings, recipes, newsletters and all of our great products.
The journey to Pure Mountain Olive Oil started long, long ago in a place far, far away. Charlie was just 3 years old and Zak was the ripe age of 8. They were on their first family vacation – to a lake in rural Maine. Charlie was a little shy at first about meeting his older cousin, but Zak felt a bond right away and was persistent. He couldn’t convince Charlie to play whiffle ball or go swimming, so he turned to food. They bonded over the first pack of animal crackers.
Over the years, even though they grew up in different cities, they stayed in close contact. Zak and Charlie both have a passion for traveling that has taken them to over 40 countries to work, live, study, and explore. In those journeys, they discovered a lot of good foods, people and cultures. Amist it all, they found that they had a special passion for olive oil. They loved the tradition, the delicate process of pressing the olives, and most of all, they loved the taste. After they discovered that they loved olive oil with nearly any food at any meal, they decided that it was time to spread the good word. Charlie and Zak mobilized to work in olive oil full-time and started Pure Mountain with the hopes of spreading their passion.
