"The olive tree is surely the richest gift of heaven"- Thomas Jefferson
We think Mr Jefferson was on to something and wholeheartedly agree! At Bull City Olive Oil, we have carefully cultivated what we believe to be a great collection of artisanal products, both local and imported. Each one was chosen to complement our oils and vinegars, and offer our guests both in-store and online, a shopping experience like none other. Our Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils are sourced seasonally, by hemisphere, and as such, we offer only freshly harvested and pressed oils to you. With all the attention paid to where olive oil comes from (is it really extra virgin? how can you tell?), we want our customers to be certain we are dedicated to providing the latest and most up-to-date nutritional and sourcing information available. We believe that healthy and tasty can go hand-in-hand, and that simplicity equals elegance. Experimenting with different pairings is encouraged and the possibilities are endless. Whether you're marinating in our luscious Black Mission Fig Dark Balsamic or Black Cherry Dark Balsamic, creating a craft cocktail with the decadent Peach White Balsamic or Cranberry-Pear White Balsamic, roasting vegetables or chicken with Milanese Gremolata Infused Olive Oil or simply drizzling of one of our exquisite Ultra Premium Extra Virgin olive oils over a baguette- we've got a flavor to satisfy your palette. (Did we mention how good these are over ice cream?)
We opened our storefront in historic Brightleaf Square in Durham in August 2016. Durham is well known for its world-class restaurant and food scene, from restaurants to food trucks to farmers markets. Brightleaf Square was the perfect fit of Old World charm and downtown revitalization. My husband Wayne created most of the fixtures in the store, you'll find the kitchen table I grew up sharing family meals at and pictures from a memorable trip to Italy on the walls. My hope is that all of these personal items combined with our products, our staff knowledge and true passion for what we do comes across to each and very customer.
We are happy to be here and hope you enjoy our shopping experience!
