Liquid Gold Olive Oils & Vinegars
Sunshine, Bottled: Liquid Gold Olive Oils & Vinegars
It was a moment of revelation. While living in the American Southwest for several years, Myrna Burlock and her partner, Bill McArthur, encountered a small shop featuring a selection of authentic, extra virgin olive oils. Myrna has been a healthy food/quality ingredients enthusiast for years, and recognized the authenticity and quality of the oils instantly. Bill says, “It wasn’t only a personal culinary breakthrough but also, upon our return, a business opportunity in Atlantic Canada.” Liquid Gold Olive Oils & Vinegars was born, purveyors of the finest extra virgin olive oils, balsamic vinegars and condiments.
As you may have read in media in recent months, there are many counterfeit, adulterated and mis-represented products on the market place. Liquid Gold advocates for and champions the flavour and health benefits that are only available in authentic olive oils and vinegars.
The company has five Liquid Gold Tasting Bars in Halifax, Bedford, Charlottetown, Saint John and Moncton, as well as five smaller Liquid Gold boutiques in other retail shops in Lunenburg, Sydney, Wolfville, Rothesay and Fredericton. Bill says they love operating in the Maritimes because they can easily commute to the other stores from their base of operations, providing support and knowledge to their staff and customers directly. He’s excited about coming to Saltscapes Expo because as he says, “We haven’t met all of our future customers yet.”
What’s a favourite of their products? Bill says it’s the ‘Stars of the Show’, the single varietal, extra virgin olive oils in all their fresh, honest and aromatic glory. “One you have tasted one, it will be very difficult to reach for a bottle of something less.” Taste the difference for yourself at Saltscapes Expo!
