Interview with Joyce Renoff from Olivin- an oil and vinegar taproom:
Joyce Renoff, the owner of Olivin- an oil and vinegar taproom
Q. Hi Joyce, and thank you for allowing me to interview you today. I would like to begin with you telling us a little about yourself, and what brought you to the Boise area.
Q. Ok, so tell us a little more about Olivin. What is Olivin?
Olivin is an olive oil and vinegar taproom, which means people come in and taste the different balsamic and my infused, fused, and ultra-premium olive oils.
Q. Fantastic, so what is Olivin’s vision and mission?
Olivin educates people on how good a high quality olive oil can be for you.
Q. Ok, wonderful. How long have you been in the area, and why is it called Olivin?
combination of Olive Oil and Vinegar
Q. How did you come up with that name?
Q. Very cool. So to get a little more in to it, what does Olivin offer to the Boise area?
Q. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think Olivin is the only place in the downtown area where people can come and sample oils and vinegar before buying them?
Q. How did you get into the Olive Oil and Balsamic business?
I walked into the store and fell in love with the whole concept.
Q. So what is fueling that passion? What is the connection there?
Q. So is it the flavor profiles, or the diversity of flavors that you can get?
I think it is that I learned that it is really good, how healthy it was for you, the differences in taste, and I just got more educated, and the more I learned about it the more passionate I became. Just something that was there for me.
Q. Ok, very interesting. How long have you been in the Olivin business?
Q. Ok, so you have been here since June, but overall how long have you been working with olive oil and balsamic vinegars?
Q. Ok, so what makes your business different from others in the area?
The fact that you can actually walk into my store and taste something before you buy it. I want you to take it home and use it.
Q. Can you talk a little more about what makes you passionate about olive oil and vinegar? I know you mentioned health benefits, among other things. I think a lot of people may not be aware of some of the other benefits.
