This superior extra virgin olive oil comes from Sitia, located in Lasithi municipality, in eastern Crete. The collection of the olives is made by hand and only when the olives are ready, and the extraction of the olive oil is cold extracted and with mechanical means only. This is why the extra virgin olive oil produced by "Sitia" is of low acidity, has a fruity taste and rich aroma, and it is classified among the best in the world.
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.
