It is at the beginning of the 19th century that the story of A L'OLIVIER starts, in the heart of Paris, in the Marais district. Mr Popelin, then pharmacist, opens a shop dedicated to the olive oils of Provence. With a reputation for quality and award-winning by two medals at the universal exhibition of 1867 and 1889, the House extended its know-how to other varieties of oils to become the specialist of quality oils. Today the company operates two oil mills. One, installed in Grasse, produces conventional and organic olive oil from a local raw material. The other, located in Poitou, makes in a traditional way gourmet oils from walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, and rapeseed... Oils produced in our two mills are offered under A L'Olivier brand. Others olive oild, many in PDO, but not only, are selected from other producers and oil mills. Only the best oils chosen by our team of expert tasters are offered under A L'Olivier. In order to complete its selection of quality oils A L'Olivier began 25 years ago to make fresh plant infused olive oils . Obtained according to an original process of dynamic maceration, these oils distinguish themselves by intensity and freshness of their flavor.
Real cooking aids, they ideally complement olive and seed oils in the kitchen. These herbal oils are developed in our workshops on the borders of Provence and County of Nice : an ideal location for our supplies of fresh plants, herbs and citrus. A L’Olivier also means a nice assortment of traditional vinegars, balsamic vinegar of Modena PGI, fruit pulp vinegars. In this latest range we invite you to discover without delay our three new flavors : Zucchini & Mint, Beetroot & Thyme and Wild Peach.
With so many great ingredients, oils and Vinegars, our “nozes” couldn't refrain from inventing exquisite salad dressings. They wanted them exotic, fresh and tasty.
Finally, A L’Olivier has involved in a commitment towards more organic products whenever raw materials are available. One will have the opportunity to discover our Bio Gourmet range at the show. On the occasion Gourmet Selection 2019, A L'Olivier had again innovated through the development of a range of infused olive oils for desserts, consisting of three recipes. In 2020, we will show brand new exquisite and vibrant products … don’t miss them. Come and taste hem, we will be happy to welcome you.
Olive oil from matured olives, century-old olive treesA L'OLIVIER
Our olive oil is rare: - UNIQUE, it is the fruit of century-old olive trees in Haute-Provence; - FRENCH, it is made with a unique savoir-faire protected by the French PDO label; - EXCEPTIONAL, it is harvested from a single parcel with limited production; - INTENSE, it is characterized by its incomparable “black fruity” taste; - UNCOMMUN, tastes like black olives and tapenade. On the edge of The Penitents rock formation in the South of France, century-old olive trees enjoy an amazing climate mixing mountain and Mediterranean influences. Paired with the relatively cold climate, thealtitude enhances the taste of the olives giving the oil an incredible intensity. The olives were harvested at the end of 2020. They were then left in controlled storage until the development of the fusty taste.
