The Twisted Branch
Foodies will flock to this gourmet purveyor of oil, vinegar, honey, hand-blended spices, and signature small-batch coffee. Owners and brothers-in-law Richard Cozza and John Cherico knew that customers would be challenged to choose from their selection of more than 50 oils and vinegars without first having a taste. To solve this dilemma, they created the Tap Room—which provides customers a range of products to sample, like Killer Bee-style hot sauce, made from local honey. Gift baskets can be built to order, making it easy to create a perfectly “made-to-taste” present.
