Welcome to Greenville, Vom Fass!

I recently visited Vom Fass, cute new shop in Greenville.  German for "from the cask" Vom Fass sells a unique selection of oils, vinegars, spirits, and liqueurs. When I arrived, I was immediately drawn to the spirits side of the store.  All of the beautiful bottles with variegating colors of scotch, whiskey, and bourbon just drew me in.

The other side of the store houses their oils and vinegars, the true reason for my visit.  I've been to a few other oil and vinegar shops around the area, but the selection at Vom Fass was unbeatable.  They had the ordinary suspects; herby olive oils and fruity vinegars, but they also had several oils and vinegars that I've never heard of.  The Calamansi Vinegar, Beer Solera Vinegar (actually made from beer!), Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Basil Extra Virgin Olive Oil were my favorites.  

Each oil and vinegar is housed in its own dispenser with a card by it that explains exactly what it is and has a recipe suggestion on the back.  They are all priced per 100 ml, so you just choose the size of bottle you need (which is priced separately) and then fill it up.  I love the look of all of the bottles that they sell, they'd be perfect for a gift.  BUT the cheapskate in me had to ask,  and yes, you can bring your own vessel for them to fill up.  I have about 30 mason jars varying in size at our house, so the next time I return I'll be coming with an empty jar.

While I was there, I picked up a sampler of eight different oils and vinegars.  I wanted to be able to try several of them in different recipes, so this was the best option for me.  Once I find a few of my favorites, I'll return to the store to get my jars filled.  You can tell that I've already gotten into the Calamansi Vinegar,  I just couldn't resist.  I can't wait to play around with these and see what tasty concoctions I can come up with!

If you're interested in Vom Fass, you can find them in the Point Shopping Center on Woodruff Road, close to Whole Foods.  Vom Fass is still relatively new to Greenville, so check out their Facebook page here for updates, event information, and cooking class schedules.


  1. This place looks so fun! I love all the bottles and jugs. Let us know how the recipes turn out.

  2. My husband would love all the liquors and I would love the oils! What a neat store! Wish we had one in Charleston!
