In the year 2011 a small group of selected customers of our shop tried our own olive oil, produced from olives of our family in Crete. The feedback was positive without exception so that now, with the new crop season 2011/2012 we can offer our 'family olive oil' to a bigger market - here it is:
It is a extra virgin olive oil of superior quality, obtained directly from olives ans solely by mechanical means (cold extraction). The Koroneíki olives from which the oil is pressed grow in the area around Ierapetra that belongs to the famous olive oil region of Sitia. These olive variety is the reason for the golden and light green colour as well as for the fruity aroma
The acidity of the olive oil is 0,3 % which means that the oil is a very mild one. You can use it for improving the taste of fresh salads and moreover for all kinds of baking and cooking.
In some crop seasons we are glad to offer you a very special olive oil: our best with 0,2 % acidity only:
KRETA 0,2 PREMIUM
Please see the promotional offer, too, where oil with reduced price is sometimes available!
