Pouring Fresh for 11 Years
In June 2012, Jamie and Clara Griffiths introduced The Pristine Olive Tasting Bar to London, and for the past decade fresh extra virgin olive oils and savoury balsamic vinegars have been the essence of their family business and the cornerstone of success.
The Pristine Olive’s top priorities today remain the same as the day they swung open the doors; to bring Londoners the freshest and highest quality extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegar available.

Why Does
“Fresh” Matter?
The health benefits of extra virgin olive oil are unmatched, with research revealing more benefits almost daily. However, not all olive oils are created equal. “A fresh olive oil contains the most flavour, nutrients and health benefits,” explains Jamie. “Whereas an old, poorly made, improperly stored or fraudulent olive oil yields fewer, if any, health benefits.”

Bright and Welcoming Retail Space

The Pristine Olive’s standards for extra virgin olive oil were developed to define and distinguish the freshest, highest quality olive oils in the world — the ultimate in flavour, authenticity, tree-to bottle transparency and third-party sensory and chemistry lab testing. Their focus on freshness is guaranteed through the rotation of all their olive oils with every harvest. For half the year, The Pristine Olive imports extra virgin olive oils produced in the Northern Hemisphere, and the other half of the year, oils produced from the Southern Hemisphere. As Jamie attests, “We never have oils available past the 12-month mark following their actual harvest/crush date.”

Over 60 All-Natural Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars
A myriad of choices — all available to try before you buy — will ignite your taste buds. And the value placed on purity certainly doesn’t end with their olive oils. As one of the few companies in the world to offer a truly colour-free product, all the aged dark balsamic vinegar available at The Pristine Olive are caramel-colour free, with no added thickeners or sweeteners.
