This gourmet shop and "olive oil tasting emporium," opened in August 2006 in historic Long Grove, is the place to go before making that special salad. The shop offers the chance to sample and buy extra-virgin oils from Spain, Italy, Australia and elsewhere, as well as olive oils flavored with lemon, blood oranges, basil, porcini mushrooms; balsamic, red wine and sherry vinegars; and more. You can sample sample oils and vinegars from large stainless steel urns called "fustis" before deciding on your purchase, which will be bottled on the spot. The Olive Tap also offers olives, spices and gift baskets.
