Details

Ingredients: 100% Lianolia olives. Nothing else.

Producer: Amargiotakis family.

Origin: Village of Dafnes, Crete, Greece.

Agriculture: Minimal intervention. Non-irrigated.

Soil type: Limestone hills.

Harvest: November 2020.

Process: Superior category extra virgin olive oil obtained directly from mechanical (never chemical) means.

Why is it cloudy? Much like natural wine, we chose to keep it unfiltered to preserve as much of the flavour as possible. Olive oil is really just a fruit juiceand we like the whole goodness of some of the pulp (albeit, very small particles) bringing through more of the deliciousness. That said, use it up as this mean it won't last as long.

Let's talk about the good stuff: Our extra virgin olive oil measured in at 291mg/kg of polyphenols, which is above the 250 mg/kg benchmark set by EU Regulation (No. 432/2012) about high-polyphenol olive oils. 

Flavours

Green apple, avocado and artichoke. 

There’s a slightly peppery finish that's a sign it's rich in Oleocanthal (anti-inflammatory, antioxidant 'superfood' compound).

Serving Suggestion

Drizzle, bake and fry (yes, fry—just as the Greeks do!).

  • Sarah says: I use it to ‘finish’ any meat or veggie dish to make sure I get the most out of the flavour and health benefits. I also love to pour it generously over pastas and soup dishes.
  • Michael says: I like to start a meal soaking it up with bread, but I like to end a meal with it poured over vanilla or chocolate ice cream for a creamy, rich indulgence. Sounds weird but pairs perfectly.
