This extra virgin olive oil comes from Crete, it is produced using extracted olive oil from a single variety and by mechanical means only, and has been awarded in international competitions (Los Angeles International EVOO Competition, London IOOC). Its full golden green color body has a soft and delicate taste, and a discreet aftertaste that surprises pleasantly. Can be used raw on fresh salads, fish, greens and soups, or slightly cooked in pasta, meat and fish.
Important Information for tins:
Due to their nature, tins of olive oils (regardless of size) can potentially dent in transit; although we try to carefully package everything, there is a high probability that the packaging might be dented, in some cases to an extreme degree. This damage occurs because the aluminum nature of the tin makes it light for use, but highly susceptible to outside forces. This expected condition does not alter the quality or life of the product in any way. Please consider before ordering.
