Our Story

 

Rick Martin founded 11 Olives when he moved to Seattle in 2010.  He was inspired by the abundance of fresh local produce the Northwest had to offer and was motivated to live a healthier lifestyle. Being raised in an Italian family where quality olive oil and balsamic were staples at the dinner table, Rick valued the superior taste and health benefits that fresh extra virgin olive oil had to offer and set out to share this passion by producing his own unique flavor blends right here in Seattle.  For over four years now Rick and his team at 11 Olives have hosted thousands of tastings and have built close friendships with the finest olive growers throughout California.   In 2014, we were awarded our 1st Gold Medal at the California Olive Oil Council’s annual tasting competition for our locally produced Extra Virgin Olive Oil “Longevity”.

Our mission is offering the freshness and goodness of the earth.  Our passion is harmony.  Harmony with nature, harmony with each other, and harmony with the flavors we produce in our small batch olive oils and balsamic vinegars.  We look towards renewal and healthy living as our source of inspiration and growth.  We believe our relationship with the environment is sacred and improving the quality of the foods we eat is fundamental in sustaining and honoring this relationship.

 

Our Extra Virgin Olive Oils and infused balsamic vinegars celebrate the best that nature has to offer. We source our ingredients from growers who practice sustainability, and whenever possible, utilizing organic methods. And unlike most olive oils and vinegars that are shipped from the other side of the world, we bottle 11 Olives by hand in Seattle, ensuring the freshness and quality of our products while also leaving a minimal carbon footprint.

 

As you can tell, we love what we do! Every one of our bottles contains a reflection of our dedication to flavor, freshness, quality, sustainability, and to you and your palate. We hope you enjoy our oils and balsamic as much as we enjoy making them!

 

At 11 Olives we believe in community, friendship, and maintaining strong relationships with our customers. The friendship and encouragement that we have received from Seattle residents and fellow business owners has been overwhelming, and nearly every person we meet is making an effort to improve their community through their volunteer efforts or charitable giving. We’ve had the honor to work with many local nonprofits since opening 11 Olives, and we look forward to participating in many more special events, tastings, and community partnerships in the years to come.
