Born into a family of artists and Chefs, the art of cooking comes naturally to Al Hartman. His lifelong study of authentic smoking techniques earned him the nickname ‘The Smoke Whisperer’. With McGyver-like skills, and a passion to create astounding flavors, Al invented an entirely new smoking process in 2007. His exclusive process NATURALLY wood smokes extra-virgin olive oil in the absence of heat, air & light…thus preserving the quality and flavor of premium oils. The resulting products were met with great enthusiasm.
