Organic extra virgin olive oil (96%), organic garlic (4%)
About this product
Olive oil has been at the centre of the Cretan diet and civilization for thousands of years. It remains an intrinsic part of the local economy, history and culture. And today, almost 65 % of the agricultural land of the island consists of olive groves. Cretan olive oil is a wholly natural product: it is harvested by hand, and the fruit crushed mechanically, rather than undergoing any industrial production. The velvety texture and superior taste are thanks to the natural qualities of Koroneiki olives - the main variety that thrives in the fertile soil under the Cretan sun.
This rich emerald offering from Kelea Goods, acts as the perfect vehicle for all things Cretan, as the aromatic almond and artichoke pairing work perfectly with the pungent, slightly spicy flavor of the velveteen garlic, balancing the touch of spice with slight bitterness for a lasting finish that stays with you long after the final morsel is picked from your plate. To be enjoyed in salads, over grilled vegetables, or to finish any pasta dish, the organic olive oil also lends itself well to cooking, elevating marinades, sauces, meats, and fried dishes.
