Though January has come and passed, it’s not too late to start that new year’s resolution of eating healthier. There is one Macon business that has a healthy and natural way to do just that.
Olive in a Bottle, located off of Bass Road, is Macon’s own specialty olive oil and vinegar store. They sell a selection of olive oils that are sourced from all over the world: Australia, Italy, Spain, Africa and more.
Along with pure olive oil, they sell a variety of infused oils. These olive oils are infused with natural ingredients such as basil, or more exotic flavors like Asian spices.
The vinegars too come in a variety of flavors. Most vinegars are a fruit flavor, but again, there are more exotic infused ingredients like coffee or ginger.
“Both the oil and vinegar are the highest quality you can find in the area. You can’t go to the grocery store and buy anything like this,” said Brandi Judd, Sales Associate for the Macon location.
The oils can serve many health purposes. “I use it as a condiment on sandwiches in place of mayo because it is so much better for you,” Judd said.
Other uses for the oils and vinegars are popping topping, marinades, salad dressing, and countless more.
Olive oil is the only cooking oil that is made without using chemicals.
“I know what I’m getting. I know in these products, what you see on the label is what you get,” Judd said.
For those who don’t know where to start in terms of what oils and vinegars they buy, all they have to know is what flavors they like.
“The way to narrow the choices down is to ask them what their favorite fruit is. Once I know what your favorite fruit is, we can go find a vinegar, and then we can pair it with an olive oil that it goes well with,” Judd said.
All oils and vinegars can be sampled free of charge. However, for those who don’t enjoy olive oil or vinegar, Olive in a Bottle also sells salad dressings, jams, pastas, homemade soaps, spices, organic coffee, local honey and other organic artisanal products.
