Oil seen from above

It almost looks like an empty glass, but it is not so. It is shaped like a tulip with no stalk: it is the official oil-tasting glass, the colour of which is blue. Blue, because professional tasters are terrified of colours. Their heart starts to pound, and aghast they repeat “oh my, oh my, I saw its colour, I saw its colour!”. Distressed, they plead their right not to be lured by the beauty of oil and its enchanting shades and colours. It’s all a matter of point of view

What type of oil has the future in store for us? “The focus is entirely on the oil of the future – explains Mr. Caricato – and not on the future of oil. The idea is to revolutionize the language that we are used to, hence changing our personal vision of oil. This will lead to innovation, and new interpretations of it. There will be an element of rupture with the past, but the past won’t be recanted. What truly matters is thinking outside the box, moving forward and opening new doors.”

Are mice oil connoisseurs? Who knows, perhaps they are. No doubt that they have an excellent palate for oil, and food in general!
