Olive Tap opens in the village


Celebrating its grand opening July 7, Zionsville Olive Tap opened at 31 East Pine St. after a soft opening the previous week. The grand opening featured special tastings and recipes each hour. Co-owners Julie Wooldridge and Angie McCloskey encourage sampling of their 39 oils and vinegars.

“If you like something, we fill the bottle,” McCloskey said.

The store features vinegars and oils infused with flavors like maple bacon, blood orange, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple cayenne and chocolate as well as simpler Tuscan herb, balsamic and garlic. Cookbooks and spice packets inspire menu ideas. Eventually, the owners hope to post recipes and pairing suggestions on their website and someday expand.
