EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL infused
This is an amazing extra virgin cold pressed olive oil produced in Messenia , Greece. It comes from the small scale producer and, unlike most conventional oils found in supermarkets, is totally unblended. This means, neither olive fruit from other producers are used, nor olives from different harvests are mixed in production of olive oil. The local independent family run businesses are involved at every stage of production : from taking care of olive groves, harvesting, pressing oil.
The oil is unfiltered which results in rich intense green colour and smooth flavour. This oil has an acidity of between 0.2-0.3% which is incredibly low and is an indicator of high quality standard.
As a result of EU legislation from 2014 it is not allowed to sell olive oil on tap with an idea to protect the authenticity and quality of product. While it is not monitored how big market players blend oils before bottling, our supplier had to make adjustments in order to allow for zero waste sales. Each of 20l containers that we receive is infused with a pinch of black pepper and therefor classified as infused olive oil allowed for sales on tap in accordance with the current legislation. We can reassure this does not affect the quality or flavor of the oil as the infusion can be described as trace.
