We are purveyors of premium quality single varietal and blended extra virgin olive oils, vinegars, gourmet salts, spices and culinary serving accessories. Strippaggio is the term used to describe the slurping employed by an olive oil taster after taking an oil sample into his or her mouth. This technique allows a complete sensory experience of the oil compared to just sipping the oil. We encourage our customers to slurp!!
All of our extra virgin olive oils are sourced from award winning small producers in the United States. Our olive oils have met rigorous testing standards to ensure they are 100% extra virgin. Our customers can rest assured that they are purchasing oils that taste exceptional, are as close to harvest date as possible and highly nutritious. We do not source our products from one distributor but have taken the time to establish relationships with the best producers of the wide assortment of products we offer.
Our business was founded on a long standing passion for high quality artisan culinary ingredients. We are dedicated to sourcing our products from artisinal culinary craftsmen. You will find unique, one of a kind items in our store. We look forward to providing you with an unparalleled culinary adventure both in our Earth Craft certified store in Atlanta and online. Come in and taste the difference!
One of the underlying tenets of our business lies in educating our customers regarding the quality differences in the products we represent. Extra virgin olive oil is likely the most complex of our offerings. Not unlike wine, olive oil quality can vary greatly within the marketplace. The biggest difference in wine versus olive oil is that wine improves with age; olive oil does not. We are dedicated to providing authentic extra virgin olive oil that is as fresh as possible. Freshness is key in separating great olive oil from sub-standard olive oil.
Strippaggio’s staff is well versed not only on the quality difference in our products, but also in matching specific oils, vinegars and other culinary ingredients with the dishes you intend to create. Understanding and sharing the alchemy that is created when selecting and matching the perfect ingredients, whether oils, vinegars, sea salts or spices is where we differentiate ourselves. We believe in having fun doing what we love and look forward to engaging our customers in a unique culinary experience.
