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 an 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.

It’s spiciness is balanced by light bitterness and citrus, with a long finish. To be enjoyed in salads, over grilled vegetables, or to brighten sauteed greens. The organic olive oil also lends itself well to cooking, elevating marinades, sauces, meats, and fried dishes.
