Our Story

It all started in an elevator…it was kismet! Tory and Joseph met several times all by accident in an elevator in their building. After many impromptu conversations and then an invitation to a party, they became more than neighbors, family. Joseph even dropped Tory off at Spanish school at which time Tory started to call Joseph mi tío (uncle)!

Joseph’s conversations regarding his love of Spain and especially the Sierra De Gata region influenced Tory in readdressing her desire to become fluent in Spanish and living abroad. The rest as they say is history. While living in Spain, Tory fell in love with the country and the people. COVID-19 did not prevent her from continuing her immersion into the language and the Spanish way of life.

Together, Tory and Joseph, both lovers of great food, thought where in the states could you get olive oil as wonderful as Aqua et Oleum’s? A dream was born! Tory with her background in marketing and Joseph with his design and import business decided to give it a whirl and bring this fabulous extra virgin olive oil to you.
