Private Party & Tastings
In-Store Taproom Tastings
Tasting is one of our primary functions at Muskoka Olive Oil. We offer free in-store complimentary samples daily. Tasting before you buy is a great way for you to decide which olive oil or balsamic vinegar is best for you.
At Muskoka Olive Oil we’ve developed a full tasting tour provided by our friendly and knowledgeable associates who are just as passionate about our oils and vinegars as our owner. You do not need to reserve a time for your tasting tour during regular business hours. It is offered to all visitors to our store. If you are coming in with a group of four or more, and would like to ensure an uninterrupted tasting tour experience, feel free to call ahead just so we can take measures to give you the devoted time of one of our customer service associates.
A tasting tour can take as little or as long as you like, typically ranging from 5-10 minutes, depending on how much information you would like and how many tasting recommendations you’d like to sample with the help of an associate.
Private & Corporate Tastings
Looking for something fun and different to do? Private tasting tours are events that are frequently requested and can be arranged after store hours for groups of 10 (minimum) and 15 (maximum). There is a small fee associated with these events.
Private Group Tastings
Need a Night Out with Friends? How about a new and different place to host your next special event such as a Girls or Guys Night Out, a Birthday Party, or a Bridal Shower?
Check out Muskoka Olive Oil’s After Hour Party where you bring your family and friends and we will supply goodies (we will prepare some great food ideas that use Muskoka Olive Oil’s products!) and have fun at your own private tasting party!

What can you expect during your Private or Corporate Tasting Event
Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar 101
This is an educational tour where you will learn to taste olive oil like a professional. Learn the meaning of extra virgin and how it is determined. You will learn how olive oil is made and taste our olive oils directly from our fustis (stainless steel tanks). You will learn to identify flavour characteristics and how to select olive oils in the marketplace. This is your chance to ask questions and become a connoisseur of olive oil and balsamic vinegars!
Taste our Extra Virgin Olive Oils along with our aged Dark and White Balsamic Vinegars. We will also share some of our favourite Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar drink mixes.
As part of this tasting experience, you will learn how to pair olive oils and balsamic vinegars with food.
You and your guests will be served a beautiful Charcuterie Board loaded with an assortment of hors d’oeuvres. We would suggest this is enough food for a light meal.
