Olive oil, balsamic vinegar tasting store opens


MIAMI – Owner Jana Higginbottom says her business will deliver top-quality olive oils and balsamic vinegars from around the world, poured to each customer's taste.

"This is the first olive oil tasting store in Miami, and I'm so proud to say I brought it here," said Higginbottom, owner of EVOOBOTTEGA and resident of Miami for over 22 years.

The new store, opening Thursday, will have what Higginbottom calls the finest selection of extra virgin olive oils, fused and infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars.

"Starting this business is, in a way, about going back to my roots, where family was the most important thing," Higginbottom said. "Cooking great food for the people you love is one of the most basic ways of showing them how much you care."
