Product Description

Olive Branch is a single varietal, 100% natural Extra Virgin Olive Oil cold-pressed solely from Koroneiki olives to produce an intensely flavoured fruity olive oil with a hyper-fresh grassy aroma.

The flavour takes you through three distinct stages,beginning with a fresh grassy flavour – likened to freshly cut herbs, moving onto some fruity, nutty undertones and finishing with a light spiky peppery finish.

Together with the neighbouring farmers in our region of Lasithi in SE Crete, we carefully handpick our olives and cold press them within hours to produce this fruity extra virgin olive oil with a backdrop of nutty flavours and a light peppery finish.

Preserving traditional harvesting methods and respecting age old traditions, our Koroneiki olives are harvested at the same time of the year and cold pressed at the community co-operative that has been the soul of the community for many generations.

Our oil has a naturally low acidity which delivers a superior quality flavour with a higher than average natural antioxidant content.

Origin: Lasithi Province, Crete

Really tasty olive oil, and good value in this volume. But like another reviewer has said, I've had two of the metal containers arrive damaged, thankfully they didn't leak, but I do open the box with a bit of trepidation when it's in my order.

I wanted to check the oil in stock is the new harvest from last autumn and indeed from a call this morning, the sell by date is autumn 22 so I’ve ordered 2 cans. It’s cheaper than before for some reason yet this oil is the one a certain very famous restaurant uses for their dips, rather than their own very expensive one. Yo !rnIt’s very good

Q: How recent is the harvest date when it’s sent out generally?

A: Hi Please see the response from Olive Branch below. "In our region of Crete, we harvest between the end of November to the beginning of December each year. Olives are a winter fruit and as the weather switches from summer to winter, they begin ripening. We pick them just as they start ripening (end of November to the beginning of December) as this produces the best quality extra virgin olive oil - a great balance between the fruity flavour and a low acidity (which is the key criteria for a top quality extra virgin olive oil). Once the olives are picked, they are cold pressed on the day of picking. I hope this helps. Kind Regards
