The Olive Tap has an excellent selection of olive oils and balsamic vinegar to choose from. The store has small paper cups at each container so you can test taste before you buy - a great idea. Try all of them or just try a few, it's OK with them. We always enjoy going to Manitou Springs for the day... More

I've been to a lot of Oil retail stores and what made this on different for me is they have more than just oil. They have seasoning and quite a number of seasoned salts and you can taste everything. This is so important.

This places has a wonderful assortment of flavored olive oils and vinegars to suit many palettes. You have the opportunity to taste them before buying and many are accompanied by recipes showing you how to use them. The staff is also quite knowledgeable, if you are unsure what to get.

When in Manitou Springs I took my 7 and 10 yo with me and they had a blast. They enjoyed tasting all the balsamic vinegar and olive oils. The variety is amazing and we also picked up some dipping seasoning. This is a must see when visiting. The staff is friendly and they are kid friendly as well.

Bought some strawberry balsamic vinegar and can't wait to put it on a salad. Great service also. To me this is a much better souvenir to take home, than something you will never use.

These were the best oils I have ever tasted! I would have loaded up if we weren't RV traveling! Super friendly people too! Can't wait for sweet potatoes roasted in herbs d provance oil... Tasting everything just makes you want to go home & cook up a storm! Prices were very reasonable too!

This was a delightful store to shop at! The staff were friendly and helpful. The selection was enormous! Who knew there could be so many flavored oils and vinegar to cook with! They allow you to sample them all! We bought the "Serrano Pepper Honey Balsamic Vinegar" - see photo for description. Yum!

Real olive oil, not what you get in the store. What every you are cooking these will enhance your dishes in ways you never dreamed. They have all different kinds and vinegar's as well. Their infused oils give just the right pop to just about anything from popcorn to your fanciest dishes and are delicious right out of the bottle... More

So many choices of olive oils and vinegars. You can taste any of them and they are all wonderful. And who knew they would have peach, raspberry, chocolate (yes chocolate) bacon, and dozens of others. You can purchase them by the bottle or in gift boxes. You can also pick up dipping dishes and oil and vinegar dispensers.
